  • Synopsis


Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s SKYSCRAPER as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.

The film was first announced in May 2016 after Legendary Pictures won a bidding war for the project. Johnson was confirmed as the main lead around that same time, and shortly after, the supporting cast rounded into shape. Production began in August 2017. This marks the second time Johnson has worked with Rawson Marshall Thurber, after previously collaborating with him on Central Intelligence. The two are set to re-team for 2020's Red Notice.
