The Rock - Dwayne Johnson is Not Without Hope

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will star in 'Not Without Hope'.

The 'Fast & Furious 6' actor has signed up to star in and produce the dramatic film, which tells the story of a group of friends who are stranded at sea when their boat capsizes.

According to Variety, Relativity Media will produce and finance the film and Johnson has landed a producer's credit, along with his manager and ex-wife Dany Garcia.

The film is based on former American football player Nick Schuyler's best-selling memoir, which recalls the harrowing ordeal experienced by him and three pals - including NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith, as well as his best friend Will Bleakley - when they found themselves struggling to survive in the Gulf of Mexico while on a fishing trip.

Schulyer said: ''I'm humbled that Relativity was interested in paying tribute to Marquis, Corey and Will, and I was impressed with their vision for the film and how they wanted to honour how these guys lived and loved their families, friends and teammates.''

Johnson is currently shooting the seventh 'Fast & Furious' film and recently wrapped shooting 'Hercules' for director Brett Ratner.

His upcoming projects include a HBO pilot about athletes in Miami and a new season of his reality TV competition, 'The Hero'.
