The story centers on a father (Dwayne Johnson) who journeys across California to rescue his estranged daughter after a massive earthquake strikes. The project has been in development at New Line Cinema since 2011, when Allan Loeb (The Switch) signed on to rewrite the original script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore (Special). Lost's Carlton Cuse signed on to rewrite the script in 2012, although the most recent draft was written by Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes (The Conjuring).
Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing, with shooting scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2014. Brad Peyton, Dwayne Johnson and the producers are also attached to make Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon for New Line, although that will happen after San Andreas: 3D.
Variety's report reveals that Dwayne Johnson is currently shooting Fast & Furious 7 in Atlanta, which means he likely wrapped production on Hercules: The Thracian Wars over the weekend. The actor revealed his most recent photo from the Hercules: The Thracian Wars set on Saturday.
