by Duke Magazine

The superhero film ‘Ball and Chain’ which starred Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt has been acquired by Netflix. 

 Emily V. Gordon (‘The Big Sick’) who is an Oscar nominee is the scriptwriter of the film that is adapted from the 1990s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell. The movie storyline follows a married couple going through relationship turmoil who also have superpowers, but they only work properly when they’re together.

Johnson and Blunt had recently together joined the casts on Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’, a family adventure that’s slated to be released in theaters next year.

The duo of Johnson and Blunt are the co-producers of the ‘Ball and Chain’ film. Johnson’s Seven Bucks banner with Dany and Hiram Garcia will aid in the production along with Kevin Misher. Lobdell is executive producing along with Andy Berman for Misher Films.

One of our main initiatives at Seven Bucks is to continue to find the best platforms to tell stories that entertain and inspire on a global scale,” Johnson said. 

“Netflix is the perfect partner to deliver this epic superhero/romantic comedy experience alongside us, and we’re excited to be back in business with the Netflix team. I’m also excited to not only reunite with dear friend Emily Blunt in front of the camera, but to also collaborate as producing partners as we bring Emily V. Gordon’s script to life.”

Johnson will also be seen in Netflix’s action comedy “Red Notice” aside Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds.

Meanwhile, Blunt will be starring in ‘A Quiet Place Part II’, a movie directed by her husband John Krasinski. Paramount had planned to release the film on March 18, but postponed it until Sept. 4 due the coronavirus outbreak that has made theaters to be shut. 

Gordon, who received an Academy Award nomination with Kumail Nanjiani for ‘The Big Sick’ screenplay, worked on the Apple TV Plus series ‘Little America’.

Johnson is represented by WME, TGC Management and Gang Tyre; Blunt is represented by CAA and Sloane Offer; Gordon is repped by UTA, Mosaic and Schreck Rose; and Lobdell is represented by A3 Artists Agency, Zero Gravity, and Joan Vento-Hall.
