Dwayne Johnson's perfect Skyscraper stunt
TownNews.com Content Exchange

Dwayne Johnson had "one take" to perfect his 'Skyscraper' stunt.

The 46-year-old actor had one shot at the crane jump in the action movie because of an old injury.

He said: "I was wired, but I still did it. I ran, jumped off. One take. I told Rawson, I only had one take because years ago, I tore the top of my quad and my adductor from my pelvis, so it's hard for me to get a good jump off. But that's what you see in the movie."

And Dwayne is keen to work alongside 'Skyscraper' director Rawson Marshall Thurber again.

He told Entertainment Tonight: "He won't stop calling, saying, 'What do you got next, man? I need it.' Chris Hemsworth, yes, Ryan Gosling... Anybody, literally anybody.

"We had a great time on 'Central Intelligence'. 'Skyscraper', we had a great time, too. I've gotten to a point in my career, and that point is that life's too short and work is too important to, excuse my language, work with a**holes ... so I refuse to do that."

Meanwhile, Dwayne previously claimed 'Skyscraper' will send heart rates soaring.

Speaking in a teaser clip to announce the final trailer, he said: "There's been this Fitbit phenomenon which is very real, where people who are afraid of heights or have vertigo have been going to watch our movie wearing their Fitbits, and they have been reporting heart rates over 100 - sitting down.

"So this is a white-knuckler, it's a stomach tumbler, it's a pressure cooker not for the faint of heart. If you have vertigo, or if you're afraid of heights, it sounds like I'm joking about this but you will want to bring a friend."
