Ok, so this is going to be cute, hilarious and hot, all at the same time. Kylie Minogue is to appear opposite Dwayne Johnson in a disaster movie “San Andreas”, currently being filmed at Village Roadshow on the Gold Coast.
The petite songstress, who is almost half a meter shorter than the former WWE wrestler, will play Beth, a woman who finds herself in the worst possible place when a magnitude-9 earthquake hits California.
The $US100 million project depicts a rescue chopper pilot (Johnson) and his wife (Carla Gugino) who make a dangerous journey across California to rescue their estranged daughter in the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California.
Our precious Minogue is no stranger to action, having starred opposite Jean-Claude van Damme in Street Fighter back in 1994. But San Andreas qualifies as her first disaster flick.
The rock has been on a set for two months now, and the actor said it was “by far” the most action he had seen on a film.
“Not only did I want to honour the real rescue men and women (I had met) but also to create something cool for the audience because they are savvy and if there are ways where we don’t have to cut around me rappelling out of a helicopter at 300-feet down a cliff then great, let’s give it a shot,” he said.
“I have got a great stunt team who I trust. I actually did (a stunt) on my birthday which was great. It was like this cool shot out the helo all the way down. It was a great birthday present.”
San Andreas will be released on June 4 next year in the US, and June 5 in Australia.
