The "Rock", as he is popularly known, will be collaborating with Dany Garcia, Seven Bucks Production, and 101 Studios to make a movie on the National Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee Anthony Robles. The movie, titled Unstoppable, will be an inspiring story of how Anthony Robles became a wrestler and an undefeated wrestling star in college. Anthony Robles was born without one leg and the story will be about how he went from an underdog to a champion. The movie will take inspiration from Underdog to Undefeated: How I Became a Champion, his autobiography, which was released in 2012.
Anthony Robles reportedly expressed that he was honoured when he learned that a movie on his life is going to be made. He added that people had low expectations from him as his leg was missing. He also said that after joining wrestling, people thought that it would have been impossible for him to become even an average wrestler. He further expressed that he anticipated that people will be inspired by watching Unstoppable and he hopes that it will help people believe in themselves and face their challenges. He added that nothing is impossible, and if you set a goal and go after it with everything you got, you will achieve your goal.
Dwayne Johnson reportedly said, according to an online publication, that he will be playing the role of the champion in the movie. "The Rock" added that he is very happy to take this project on as he feels that he and his team are passionate about sharing stories that inspire and resonate on a global level. Dwayne also said that he was moved by the perseverance Anthony has put in to become a champion. He also expressed that he is looking forward to showing the world the tale of how Anthony tackled obstacles in his life and made the world familiar with what went into making the champ. He added that the team is very excited to bring this triumphant underdog story to life.
