The movie adaptation is currently under development and will reportedly star famous wrestler and Black Adam’s Dwayne Johnson.
Variety reported that the It Takes Two movie has entered “priority development” at Amazon Studios with dj2 Entertainment still set to produce the film with Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions (Jumanji, Jungle Cruise) also on board.
Sources from Variety claim that Johnson may star in the movie. Although as it stands, his role is simply that of a producer, and that “nothing is official as of now”.
The It Takes Two movie adaptation is being penned by Sonic the Hedgehog movie writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller. Similarly to the game, the film will follow the adventures of May and Cody, a human couple preparing for divorce and are forced to work together after being turned into living dolls.
The game’s synopsis is one that clearly reads good enough for a quirky, off-beat movie and while there’s no solid information yet as whether Johnson will be in the film, the video game is certainly worth checking out. Who knew playing a game as a toy could be filled with so much action and imagination?
