It looks like Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt really hit it off on Jungle Cruise because they’re teaming up again for Ball and Chain. The new superhero film will see the leading actors portray spouses who suddenly become superheroes.
Based on the four-part comic book series by Scott Lobdell, Ball and Chain revolves around Edgar and Mallory Bulson, who decide to get a divorce before a mysterious meteor gives them super powers. However, the only issue is, they only are able to use their newly-acquired powers when they work together, forcing them to revaluate their relationship.
Judging by the premise it seems like Ball and Chain is taking elements of both Mr & Mrs Smith and a bit of Hancock as well. The latter saw Will Smith and Charlize Theron portray a super powered couple who become mortal when they are together.
According to initial reports, the film is being produced by Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions. However it doesn’t have a studio yet but Ball and Chain has definitely caught the eye of several studios including Netflix.
Johnson and Blunt will be seen on screen in Jungle Cruise, which will open next summer.
