LOS ANGELES: Actor Dwayne Johnson is reportedly being eyed by Universal Pictures to play the lead role in its “The Wolf Man” reboot.

The upcoming reboot has currently been under production at the studio with Aaron Guzikowski penning the script. The project is part of its plan to revive its classic monsters.
