    The Rock Injury Halts Game Plan Production

    June 20, 2006


    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon injury yesterday during a football practice in preparation for his upcoming role as a professional quarterback in the Disney comedy, The Game Plan. Johnson will undergo surgery Friday in Miami by world-class orthopedic surgeon Dr. John W. Uribe. Production has been put on hiatus and will continue when he can resume his role in the film.

    "While this is a set back for our production schedule, we completely support him as he recuperates and look forward to resuming production when Dwayne is fully recovered," said Nina Jacobson, President of Walt Disney Motion Picture Group.

    In a prepared statement Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said ... "I approached this role trying to be as true to the character as possible and the fact is professional athletes train hard and get hurt. My injury, while serious, is unfortunately common with this type of activity. I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support that I have received from Disney, and all those involved with this film. I anticipate that with some TLC, pizza and a lot of donuts, I will be making a speedy recovery and will be able to get myself, and everyone who has been working so hard on this production, back to the business of doing what we love most, making movies."

    At least Dwayne's got a good sense of humor about it.

        Wasn't it a knee or leg injury that prevented him from becoming a pro football player and made him consider wrestling??

        Kinda ironic that something close to that sidelines him a bit from making a movie.

          I forget what kind of injury it was. They said it on his Biography show though.
