Stay Tuned for Netflix’s Release of ‘Ball and Chain’ Starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt
Get ready to see the Jungle Cruise stars team up again for the live-action version of the ‘9os comic, Ball and Chain.
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are coming together once more for the upcoming live-action version of Ball and Chain. The film is based on the ’90s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell and will be directed by Oscar nominee Emily V. Gordon. Johnson and Blunt will be playing a couple in a struggling marriage equipped with superpowers. There is just one catch: their powers only work when they’re together.

This project has become quite the unique & dynamic recipe to cook up. And I’m excited to team up with these very talented women. In #BallAndChain, my dear friend (I’m contractually obligated to call her that) Emily Blunt and I will play a married couple on the verge of divorce, who become blessed with superpowers that only work when we’re together. Written by Oscar nominated @emilyvgordon, who of all things, is also a licensed couples therapist 👀 #BallAndChain @sevenbucksprod @netflix 🌎
Head of Netflix Film Scott Stuber had a few words to say on the casting of the duo: “Dwayne and Emily have a chemistry together that is unmatched in our business right now. They are the perfect duo to bring Emily V. Gordon’s electric superhero story to life, and take the world of Ball and Chain to new heights.”
Audiences will get to see that chemistry when Jungle Cruise is released in July 2021.
