What would you do if a family member went to prison? Most of us would just have to fret and wait for their release, but not The Rock – he’s going into prison himself to help get his son out! This isn’t a prison break, but part of a plan to uncover that his kid was set up by drug dealers. The father is actually working with the DEA, with a deal in place that could see his son freed as long as he can come up with decent evidence.
It’s supposedly based on a true story, although we’d be willing to bet the film version of very, very loosely based on the truth. Susan Sarandon also stars as the hard-assed prosecutor who doesn’t want to let his kid off easy, which results in The Rock agreeing to go behind bars and smoke out the truth.
Ric Roman Waugh (Felon) directs with a release set for early next year.
