(UPI) -- Dwayne Johnson's post-WWE acting career is still picking up steam, with the 41-year-old semi-retired wrestler set to take on earthquakes in an upcoming 3D disaster movie, "San Andreas."
Johnson will play a "rugged rescue-helicopter pilot" (naturally) who travels California in search of his estranged daughter when an earthquake destroys the state.
"Excited to make the first ever epic 3D disaster movie!" Johnson tweeted Tuesday. "A privilege to play the role."
Brad Peyton, who helmed Johnson's previous turn in "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," will direct the film.
According to Variety, Johnson had a big 2012, with “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Fast & Furious 6″ breaking box office records for those franchises.
