The forthcoming movie Red One, starring Dwayne Johnson, is creating a lot of hype since it will likely net him the highest actor salary ever.
Johnson, a former WWE star turned actor, has made his mark with his performances in blockbuster franchises including Jumanji, Fast & Furious, the DCEU, and multiple standalone action films. The Rock has established himself as one of the most well-known film stars in recent years.
As Red One prepares for its much awaited premiere on Prime Video during this year’s holiday season, fans can look forward to an action-packed Christmas adventure as production on the feature was completed earlier this year.
Dwayne Johnson received an unlifelike $50 million for his role as Callum Drift, the E.L.F. Commander, in the movie Red One.
Dwayne Johnson Will Collect $50M For Next Movie
The astounding amount is the highest salary ever received by an actor for a single job and marks not only the peak of Dwayne Johnson’s professional earnings. The significant expenditure demonstrates the high regard in which Johnson’s abilities are held and the excitement around his performance.
The Rock’s highest salary prior to raking in $50 million for his part in Red One was a tie between his roles in Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) and Red Notice (Netflix), for which he received $23.5 million apiece.
Even yet, Johnson’s other celebrated works like Jungle Cruise ($22 million), Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw ($20 million), and Black Adam ($22.5 million) didn’t fall too far behind in terms of pay.
Johnson’s remuneration for Red One tops the record holders beforehand, which were tied at $40 million between Will Smith‘s income for his Oscar-winning performance in King Richard and Robert Downey Jr.’s salary for Captain America: Civil War.
