WHEN THE MAN COMES AROUND.
Inspired to bring to life one of my childhood heroes, John Henry, in JOHN HENRY & THE STATESMEN.
In this movie, I’ll lead an ensemble of the most popular folklore figures and legends from different cultures around the world.
@NETFLIX is the perfect partner & platform to bring these global folklore icons to life. The NETFLIX brand speaks directly to our @sevenbucksprod ethos of being bold, ambitious and game changing - and most importantly, always thinking “Audience first” in homes all around the world.
The legend of JOHN HENRY’S strength, endurance, dignity and cultural pride was instilled in my DNA at a very young age. My dad would sing “Big John” to me every time he would put me to bed. At bedtime most children get loving nursery rhyme songs — I got this/
Every mornin’ at the mine, you could see him arrive. He stood 6 foot 6 and weighed 245.
Kind of broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip. And everybody knew you didn’t give no lip to Big John.
Big John. Big Bad John.
Directing this big ol’ tentpole is the talented and passionate, Jake Kasdan. Jake and I found nice success together in a little movie called, JUMANJI.
Gonna be a lot of fun bringing these legends to life.
My childhood hero.
The steel driving man and his disruptive band of international folklore legends.

Not to be confused with the Terry Crews John Henry movie that has nothing to do with John Henry

I like the Rock, but I'm going to need to see a trailer before I have any real feelings about this.
