WWF superstar The Rock is in talks to star in a new action movie called 'Helldorado'.

If he signs up for the role, The Rock, real name Dwayne Johnson, would play a bounty hunter who goes to South America on a job.

Once there he decides to team up with his target so that they can search for hidden treasure.

Trade paper The Hollywood Reporter says that 'LA Confidential' scriptwriter Brian Helgeland is also working on a new action movie story for The Rock.

In the meantime, Irish viewers can look forward to seeing him in 'The Scorpion King', which opens on April 19.
