Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will now produce the It Takes Two movie adaptation.
Variety reported that Johnson is set to join Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia to produce the project on behalf of Seven Bucks Productions for Amazon Studios and dj2 Entertainment.
The Sonic the Hedgehog movie writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller are also on board as executive producers as well as Josef Fares and Oskar Wolontis of Hazelight Studios, the studio behind the It Takes Two game.
According to the report, it’s also possible that Johnson will star in the movie, though the cast hasn’t been finalized yet.
It Takes Two is a two-player platformer that places players in the shoes of May and Cody, a couple in the middle of a divorce. After being turned into dolls, May and Cody are forced to traverse their now oversized surroundings in an effort to return to their bodies.
We gave It Takes Two a 9/10, praising it for its imaginative environment and satisfying co-op gameplay elements. It Takes Two also became quite the winner this awards season, receiving the Game of the Year award at The Game Awards 2021 and the Multiplayer Game award at the BAFTA Awards 2022.
The award-winning co-op game’s adaptation was originally hinted at back in January, when the game’s developer Hazelight Studios partnered with dj2 Entertainment to bring the beloved game to screens. Most recently, dj2 Entertainment worked on the Sonic the Hedgehog movies, the most recent of which IGN loved for its humor and loyalty to the Sonic games.
