Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu revealed on the SAG Awards red carpet Sunday night that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson really wants a part in the hit rom-com franchise.
“The Rock did call me--he was mad that I didn’t call him for it,” Chu told Access Hollywood. "He was like, we’re so proud, blah blah blah, why didn’t you call me for this?”
Actor Ronnie Chiang was quick to joke about Johnson joining the cast, saying, “The Rock is in like every single movie. Hey Dwayne, take a seat for one movie. Can you do that, for one movie? Can you give us our one thing?”
As People notes, Chu and Johnson previously worked together on 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
