FANS: “Mr. Excellent” Meets Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in North Vancouver at SKYSCRAPER Set

The Rock’s Instagram.

For three nights in a row, Mr. Excellent held up a giant print of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s face at the railroad tracks on the road down to the studio on North Vancouver’s drydocks, where the superstar is filming his next big movie Skyscraper. On the third night, The Rock stopped to meet Mr. Excellent.

Bonus points to Mr. Excellent aka Armit Sharma for endurance and a kick-ass attitude but he wasn’t the first Vancouver fan to meet The Rock this way. The week before fans held up signs at the same spot and The Rock stopped.

Why is The Rock here? He’s filming 3D action thriller Skyscraper at Washington Studio at Vancouver Drydocks in North Vancouver. It sounds like a Die Hard movie set in Hong Kong. The Rock stars as Will Ford, a former veteran and FBI hostage rescue team leader, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. When the world’s tallest, safest tower goes up in flames in Hong Kong while he’s on assignment, Johnson finds himself framed for the arson. How will he clear his name and rescue his family trapped in the tower above the fire line?

Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Bryon Mann and Hannah Quinlivan co-star.

Week 2:
Stunt.

The start:

Last weekend, The Rock took time out to host the Mayweather vs McGregor prize fight.

And today, The Rock is hosting a young boy on set who saved his brother with a move he learned from watching The Rock in San Andreas.

No wonder The Rock is the Top Actor in the Social Media Rankings.

Skyscraper started filming here in mid-August and is expected to wrap mid-November.

It looks like production will leave the Drydocks at some point for on-location filming in downtown Vancouver.

Skyscraper will be in theatres next summer on July 13th, 2018.
