Grateful to to finish our business week on such a strong note.
In the world of Hollywood deal making - this “Ferocious” bidding war was as big and intense as it gets.
Deal is unprecedented.
Congratulations UNIVERSAL & LEGENDARY for the win. And a huge THANK YOU to all our studio partners who participated in the auction and pushed all their chips in on our big idea.
Respect to my good friend and writer/director @rawsonthurber (CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE, SKYSCRAPER) for once again coming to the table with an original concept idea - that caused big waves in the world of entertainment.
Now the fun part begins for all of us.. we roll up our sleeves, dig in and put in the work.
Soon the world will see red. I’ll keep you guys posted.
Here we go! Second quarter. Around 4:12pm PST (but who’s counting) the first look at our #skyscrapermovie — So many talented and dedicated folks worked countless hours on this picture. After the game, @therock will debut the full length trailer on Fallon. Big day. Both for me and @tombrady
Before our #SKYSCRAPER trailer launch tomorrow during the #SuperBowl, it’s with boundless gratitude and humility I introduce you to this man @teamglas who inspired me to take on this role.
The first American amputee to climb Mt Everest, Mr. Jeff Glasbrenner.
Being that my character in the movie has only one leg, I knew when I said “yes” to this role, it would be the biggest challenge of my career and most significant because of the community I would represent.
I realized thru this entire process that there’s no way I could ever truly understand what it’s like to be an amputee unless I had been one myself.
I’m grateful that Jeff gave me the motivation & psychology to fully immerse myself in the role and for that I gave him my word that every one of my actions in this movie would be from my gut, mind and heart.
With so much respect, I thank you brother for everything and I hope I make you proud.
And thank you for the words I’ll never forget that you shared with me when you first lost your leg... “you can choose to be powerful or you can choose to be pitiful, but you can’t be both”.... Amen.

Great screening of #centralintelligence last night here in London. 700+ people laughed all the way through. Makes a director happy. That's @kevinhart4real in the background saying a bunch of stuff before we started. Hand him a microphone and keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle.
