Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is all set to voice a bull in upcoming film Holy Cow! And while Home on the Range didn't exactly break box-office records, and The Barnyard was equally lacking, maybe this time cows on screen will prove as fascinating as cowboys.
The twist to this story is that Johnson's "macho" Texas steer decides that he needs to move to India, where cows are revered rather than eaten, to avoid a nasty fate. So there could be a rather nice cross-cultural element to the whole thing, and at least the Indian angle gives it a shot at originality.
The film's currently going out to writers and directors, but is set to be a co-production between Johnson's White Buffalo Media and the LA and Mumbai-based Prana Animation Studios. In the meantime, His Rockness's child-friendly career continues in the upcoming Race to Witch Mountain and The Tooth Fairy.
