THE GAME PLAN

About The Production
"I'm not qualified for this!” — Joe "The King” Kingman

Dwayne "The Rock” Johnson is about to meet his greatest match—and she's about four feet tall. Emanating a unique screen presence that combines his undeniable charm and self-deprecating humor, he further establishes himself as the consummate leading man and one of today's surprisingly new masters of movie comedy with his role as superstar quarterback Joe Kingman in Disney's THE GAME PLAN. Sure, Joe's known as one of the toughest players to ever take the field. Blessed with amazing strength and agility, he's famed for being able to handle any hit, no matter how ferocious. But, just when he doesn't see it coming, Joe is about to be knocked silly by the hardest-hitting challenge he could ever have imagined: an 8-year-old girl.

In this hilarious and heartwarming fish-out-of-water tale, "Rock” gets a chance to showcase his unexpectedly funny, not to mention fatherly, side, while still mixing it up in scenes of fast-paced football action, as the last guy you'd ever expect to find a way to become a great new dad.

It all begins as Kingman's Boston-based pro football team, The Rebels, is chasing their longawaited championship. As their victorious quarterback, Joe has been living the ultimate bachelor fantasy: he's cool, rich, famous and the life of every party—and there are a lot of parties. But his dream is suddenly sacked for a loss when he discovers Peyton (Disney Channel star MADISON PETTIS), the daughter he never knew existed, on his doorstep.

Now, just as his career is soaring, Joe must learn to juggle his old lifestyle of parties, practices and dates with supermodels while tackling the new challenges of ballet, bedtime stories and baby dolls—all without fumbling. Equally perplexed is his hard-edged megaagent, Stella Peck (KYRA SEDGWICK), herself without a parental bone in her body. But, as the championship grows nearer, Joe is about to realize that the game that truly matters has nothing to do with money, endorsements or even touchdowns—it's all about the really tough stuff: patience, teamwork, selflessness…and winning the heart of the one little fan who turns out to count the most.

Walt Disney Pictures, in association with Mayhem Pictures, presents THE GAME PLAN, directed by Andy Fickman ("She's the Man”) and produced by Mayhem Pictures' Gordon Gray ("Invincible,” "Miracle”) and Mark Ciardi, who are known for their hit sports action dramas but here take a turn into sports-themed family comedy. The story is by Nichole Millard & Kathryn Price and Audrey Wells and the screenplay is by Nichole Millard & Kathryn Price. Richard Luke Rothschild is the executive producer.

THE GAME PLAN stars Dwayne "The Rock” Johnson as quarterback Joe Kingman, newcomer Madison Pettis as the daughter he never knew existed, Roselyn Sanchez ("Rush Hour 2” and "Rush Hour 3,” "Without a Trace”) as Peyton's alluring ballet teacher and Golden Globe® winner Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer”) as Kingman's superstar agent. They are joined by a unique supporting cast of ball-playing actors and rising stars that includes Emmy® winner Gordon Clapp ("NYPD Blue”), Morris Chestnut, Brian White, Jamal Duff, Hayes MacArthur, Paige Turco, Robert Torti and Kate Nauta. Dwayne "The Rock” Johnson Switches Up His "Game Plan”

With roles as diverse as "The Gridiron Gang,” "The Rundown,” and "Be Cool,” Dwayne "The Rock” Johnson has forged a reputation as today's consummate leading man. But now, with THE GAME PLAN, everything's about to change, as he shows his full range by turning from dead serious and invincible to funny and fallible in the role of a hotshot quarterback who thinks his life as the ultimate rich, tough and successful bachelor is completely perfect until he suddenly has to tackle one major obstacle: fatherhood.
