Dwayne Johnson is set to play a retired athlete in a new HBO comedy drama pilot.
The WWE star - also known as The Rock - will reportedly be re-teaming with his Pain & Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg for the Miami-set show.
But although Johnson will take the lead role, Wahlberg will be staying behind the cameras as executive producer on the as-yet-untitled project.
Peter Berg, the man behind the hugely successful American Football drama Friday Night Lights - is apparently attached to direct.
The pilot is due to shoot later this year, Digital Spy reports.
Dwayne was recently tweeting from his hospital bed.
