Dwayne Johnson is “desperate to be James Bond’s next bad guy, but producers can’t afford him,” reports Star.

According to a so-called “source” for the outlet, “Dwayne asked for more money than Daniel Craig gets to play Bond!”

Star claims the role “calls for a hulking brute similar to metal-mouthed baddie Jaws from the early Bond films.

“Dwayne thought he’d be perfect, but shooting starts in a few weeks,” explains the tab’s insider. “Unless he lowers his rates, it’s not going to happen.”

So did the action star really make such demands and price himself out as a Bond villain?


A rep for Johnson tells Gossip Cop the story is “completely fabricated.”
