BIG MOVIE: SKYSCRAPER With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Surrey Central. The Rock Meets More Fans.

The Rock at Surrey Central. Lucky fans met Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson on set at Surrey City Hall on Friday night.


The action thriller filmed two overnights on the Surrey City Hall plaza dressed as Hong Kong with emergency response vehicles responding to a fire at what is supposed to be the world’s tallest tower.

Skyscraper = Die Hard in Hong Kong?

The Rock is two-thirds of the way through filming the action thriller. He 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.

The Rock didn’t come out to meet fans on the first night.

Meeting fans at the University of British Columbia at the end of September.

Tears and all. Bottom line, I’m a grateful and lucky SOB to have the greatest fans on earth. Time is my most valued currency these days and I’m always on the go, so I appreciate these students (or anyone for that matter) taking time out of their busy lives to wait patiently for hours while I finished up our #SkyscraperMovie production on the campus of University of British Columbia. I just love my guy in the back of the group jumping up and down like he just slammed a Rock size amount of caffeine and tequila. Good to meet y’all. Keep working hard in school and don’t be like Uncle DJ and get placed on academic probation after his first semester in college. ***editors note: for the record, Uncle DJ bounced back and became Academic Captain two years later of our beloved Miami Hurricane football team. #UBCLuv #TheU 🙌🏾
