Snitch trailer lands online

22 November 2012

Check out this first teaser trailer of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in upcoming action flick Snitch.

2013 is set to be a big year for wrestler turned action star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Alongside appearances in big money sequels G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Fast and the Furious 6; he’s also set to star in the New York set crime caper Empire State as well as Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain.

But before then we’ll get a chance to see him strut his stuff in Ric Roman Waugh’s Snitch.

Supposedly based on a true story, the film features The Rock as a father who’s forced to delve into the narcotics trade to try and free his son who was framed for drug trafficking.

He ends up with a gig as a driver for a drugs cartel whilst working as an informant for the US Government to help secure his son’s release and take down the people who were responsible for putting him behind bars.

Whilst the director isn’t exactly a household name he’s managed to assemble an interesting cast that boasts Susan Sarandon alongside The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal and Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Kenneth Williams.

Snitch is set for cinemas on 22nd February.
