Dwayne Johnson is teaming up with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island producer Beau Flynn and New Line Cinema for a new project entitled Teddy Bear. Unlike most Hollywood projects though, Teddy Bear didn't start with a script or even a pitch, but rather an illustration by Alex Panagopoulos that features a tiny teddy bear trying to protect a child from a gruesome monster. Take a look at this intriguing image below, along with the caption, then read on for more regarding the film.
"Teddy Bears: Protecting innocent children from monsters under the bed since 1902."
The illustration was brought to Beau Flynn's attention by Hiram Garcia, a former assistant to Dwayne Johnson. A screenwriter has not been attached yet, and the producers' take on the story is being kept under wraps for now. The caption refers to the invention of the teddy bear in 1902 by Morris Mitchtom, which was inspired by a photograph of then-President Teddy Roosevelt and a bear he refused to kill.
