The Rock shares his shooting schedule for 2016 and it’s unremittingly brutal

The Rock will quite literally have no chill this year

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has revealed the reason behind his 4am gym sessions and no, it’s not because he’s training to single-handedly fight 8,000 wildebeest for the control of Jupiter (though that is 100% a movie I would watch).

It’s actually because he doesn’t have any other god damn time to stay so monolithically stole.

He broke down his shooting schedule on Instagram today, and between Ballers, Baywatch, Fast and Furious 8 and Rampage, he has next to no personal time - and at a time when he’s just had a daughter with his girlfriend.

Godspeed Rocky, if anyone can punch a hole in the time-space continuum to create a few extra seconds in which to get sh*t done, it’s you.

 

Here's a breakdown of my 2016 shooting schedule and why I'm up at 4am everyday to train (aside from being slightly bat shit crazy). Once we wrap season 2 of #BALLERS (4 weeks left), the next day I'll start shooting our “little" beach movie called #BAYWATCH (literally THE most successful TV intellectual property of all time - so the pressure is on - bring it). After a 12 week #BAYWATCH shoot, I'll go right into shooting #FastAndFurious8. We're a family, and playing the character of HOBBS is one of my greatest joys and I'll make the promise to ya right now: I'm stepping on that set ready to rumble and raise the bar on all levels: The intensity, the tactical gear/weapons and especially that "Hobbs' winking fun". Since Fast & Furious 5, you've made HOBBS the highest testing character for a reason - and we're gonna give new meaning to the catchphrase, "Daddy's gotta go to work." After approximately 12-14 weeks of shooting FF8, I'll transition right into the big one... #RAMPAGE. Before we start shooting I'll spend time at the San Diego Wildlife Preserve as well with Anti-Poaching Units out of Africa. As big and fun as this movie is, the key is grounding it in research and authenticity. The entire team that brought you San Andreas is back and we can't wait to get started on this one. King Kong is just a little monkey compared to what these massive RAMPAGING ANIMALS can do. Now of course the universe can step in at anytime and throw a flag on the play, but as you see there's a method to my madness of 4am wake ups for cardio & training hard - it anchors my day and allows me to 100% focus and prep for these roles - and the irony of this whole thing is all these roles pale in comparison to the most daunting, gratifying and holy shit scary role of all - being a father. But that's for another fun discussion. And I close this long ass post with a question anyone who just trained calves would ask... do I or do I not have gum stuck on the bottom of my shoe? #Method2TheMadness #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #ChaseYourGreatness #AndCheckYourShoesForGum
