Susan Sarandon may be joining The Rock for action thriller

Heat Vision has word that Susan Sarandon is in negotiations to join Dwayne Johnson in the Ric Roman Waugh-directed action thriller ‘Snitch.’

In the movie Johnson plays a suburban father who is hit hard when his teenage son is sentenced to 30 years under mandatory minimum drug laws. In order to reduce his son’s sentence, the father goes undercover to serve up a senior drug dealer.

Sarandon will play an ambitious U.S. attorney who believes that a drug bust can help her political career. The role was reconfigured from male to female.

The script was originally penned by Justin Haythe with a rewrite from Waugh. Sarandon recently wrapped the Adam Sandler and Andy Sandberg comedy ‘I Hate You Dad.’ The actress is currently filming ‘Cloud Atlas’ with Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis.
