Preacher's Noah Taylor is the latest star to join Dwayne Johnson in his upcoming action flick Skyscraper.


Variety reports that the actor has joined the Legendary movie, which is written and directed by Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Central Intelligence's Rawson Marshall Thurber.

Skyscraper stars Dwayne Johnson as a former FBI hostage rescue team commander (and war veteran, to add extra heroic cred) who has segued into advising on security for giant skyscrapers. While on assignment in China, he discovers that one of the towering buildings, seen as the tallest, yet safest building in the world, is suddenly an inferno and someone is framing him for the fire. Now on the run, he has to clear his name, track down the real culprit and rescue his family, who are trapped inside.

Along with playing Adolf Hitler in the AMC drama series “Preacher,” Taylor’s other past credits include “Game of Thrones” and “Peaky Blinders.” On the film side, he was most recently seen in “Free Fire” as well as the Tom Cruise movie “Edge of Tomorrow” and “Almost Famous.”

Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber, Chin Han, Byron Mann, and Hannah Quinlivan are also set to star in Skyscraper, which Johnson will produce alongside Thurber and Beau Flynn (Requiem for a Dream). Dany Garcia (Baywatch) and Hiram Garcia (Furious Seven) will executive produce, while Wendy Jacobson (San Andreas) co-produces. The movie is targeting a 13 July release next year.
