Dwayne Johnson unrecognizable as an MMA fighter in this first image

Dwayne Johnson becomes Mark Kerr

Dwayne Johnson knows something about combat sports. Even though it’s more about entertainment, the actor is still a former wrestling star. And recently he competed at WrestleMania XL, WWE’s biggest event. But it is soon in the legend of MMA that we will find the actor again, since he was chosen by him Benny Safdie (Uncut gems) to play Mark Kerr. Born in 1968, the latter was number 1 in the world in freestyle fighting from 1997 to 2000, and was nicknamed The destructive machine. This is also the title of the next film, produced by the prestigious independent studio A24.

He also revealed it a first image, posted on the studio’s X account (formerly Twitter). We see Dwayne Johnson in a ring, ready to fight. The least we can say is that the actor appears unrecognizable. Not in terms of musculature, but in his face, with visibly the use of prosthetics to increase the resemblance to Mark Kerr. The image can be seen below:

The rise and fall of the MMA champion

The destructive machine it should not only chronicle the rise and success of Mark Kerr, but also his downfall and his addiction to painkillers. Alongside him will be Dawn Staples, the wife of the MMA championplayed in the film by Emily Blunt (who finds Dwayne Johnson again later Jungle cruise). The latter also appears at the bottom right of the image, but is also difficult to recognise. For the record, let’s remember that Emily Blunt and Benny Safdie crossed paths Oppenheimerparticularly during a scene where Kitty glares at Edward Teller and refuses to shake his hand.

Finally, as mentioned Expirationwe should see Dawn Staples who, “As she tries to build a life with Mark Kerr, she struggles to find her place in his chaotic and contradictory worldWe still don’t know when it will be released in France The destructive machine. Dwayne Johnson reportedly went to Cannes for the Marché du Film to find buyers. But nothing has been announced yet.
