Dwayne Johnson will star in and produce a biopic about black country music singer Charley Pride.

Charley Pride was one of 11 children born to a family of sharecroppers in Mississippi. He recorded more than three dozen No. 1 singles and has sold more than 70 million records.

Dwayne Johnson will produce this untitled biopic along with Dany Garcia, Randy Jackson, and Charley Pride's manager, John Daines.

No writer or director has been attached to the project at this time, and it isn't clear when production will start.
