Dwayne Johnson is set to star in Warner Bros. sci-fi action film Lore.

The film is an adaptation of a graphic novel by husband and wife writing team Ashley Wood and T.P. Louise. The novel is set in a world full of mythical creatures long since held at bay by the secret society of Shepherds. But when the Shepherds' line of succession is broken, a reluctant hero finds her life threatened from every quarter. And the creatures are coming back: Will the Earth be ready for their return?

The studio is picking up the screenplay from writers Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott. Andrew Lazar from Mad Chance is producing with David Alpert, Rick Jacobs, and Ashley Wood.

The Rock most recently made a special guest appearance at WrestleMania XXVIII, with both G.I. Joe Retaliation and The Fast and the Furious 6 on the horizon.

This project is still in development.
