Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of those action superstars who can do just about anything, so it's sort of unsurprising that he's throwing his hat in the supernatural action ring, especially since that's where he got his big break (his first role was in "The Mummy Returns"). This time, though, instead of ancient Egypt, he will be fighting ghouls in present day as the leader of "Seal Team 666, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Yes, that's really what they're calling it, and yes, that title is amazing.

The project is for MGM, who recently launched the dreadful "Carrie" remake, and will be scribed by Evan Spiliotopoulos, who wrote the upcoming "Hercules" movie for The Rock and MGM. Weston Ochse wrote the book that "Seal Team 666" is based on, which is only available for purchase on your Kindle, so you know it's really good. It concerns a group of Navy SEALs who "battle demons and assorted threats and discover that there's a greater supernatural force bent on destroying the world."

Presumably, The Rock would play the leader of this team. We assume ghosts will be involved. At the best, "Seal Team 666" could play like a more action-packed version of "Ghostbusters," while at its worst, well, do we need to remind you of "R.I.P.D."?
