The wrestler-turned-film star revealed the news via a video he posted to Instagram which sees him Facetime the actor. 

"Come on, man, The Rock and The Hoff - I was born ready," shouts the actor who played Mitch Glazer in the original series.

In January, Johnson also confirmed that model Kelly Rohrbach would star in the film as C.J. Parker, the role made famous by Pamela Anderson.

Anderson herself recently spoke out suggesting to reporters that she's been approached for the project but is yet to accept a role.
