Fighting with My Family, based on a true story, follows a girl named Saraya, who was born into a family of wrestlers and eventually earns an opportunity to train for the WWE. But in order to claim her spot in the league, she has to leave her loved ones behind. “Johnson appears as himself in the film.

While the Moana star was all smiles when celebrating his new movie, it was recently revealed that he was bummed he didn’t get to participate in another recent blockbuster.

At Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, the director of Crazy Rich Asians, Jon M. Chu, said after the romantic comedy turned out to be a raging success, Johnson — who is half Samoan — called him because he had some questions about the cast list.

“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?’ ”
