Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reportedly lands a gargantuan paycheck for his upcoming film, Red One, which is set for release this holiday season.
The upcoming Amazon Studios Original movie in which he stars alongside Chris Evans and J.K. Simmons arrives in December, and could set a new record for the former wrestler's career.
A new report reveals that Johnson was paid a record-breaking salary for the Red One movie. According to Puck News (via The Direct), Johnson earned a total of $50 million for his lead role as Callum Drift, the Commander of the E.L.F. This is not only the highest salary of his career, but the biggest payday an actor has ever received for a single role.
Johnson will soon return to play another of his iconic characters in the live-action adaptation of Moana, which was announced earlier this year as part of the long line of reimaginings of Disney classics, despite the fact that it has only been seven years since the original premiere of the film.
The Rock is also set to return along with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot to the Netflix screen in the Red Notice sequel, which is almost ready to start filming according to the former Wonder Woman star.
