After the recent leaked release of the new Caramundi USA playing cards from the highly anticipated ‘Star Wars Rogue One’ movie, which gave us a peak at the new look Darth Vader costume, CRB-VIP can now exclusively reveal the actor behind the mask of the Sith Lord for the new film is none other than The Rock, himself!
After being announced as the highest paid actor in all of Hollywood for 2016 (making a whopping $64.5 million this year), Johnson was so thrilled to be approached by Disney for the role, he forfeited any potential salary, for a lifetime supply of George Foreman grills, so all the cast on set could enjoy the smell, of whatever the Rock was cooking, throughout filming.
The film, due for UK release in December, will no doubt be a huge success for both Johnson and Disney with our insider sources confirming that a ‘Rock Vader’ action doll will be on the shelves well in time for Christmas, to appease the fans of both the Star Wars franchise and Johnson himself. A ‘Rock Vader’ wrestling buddy has also been mooted.
When our CRB-VIP reporter approached director Gareth Edwards to ask him about the leak, he declined to comment, as he was enjoying a beautifully lean mean grilled steak at the time.
