It is very apparent that film director Brad Peyton and actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson have a fantastic working relationship. Certainly, the fact that they have worked together on films such as Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, San Andreas and Rampage is proof of this. Rampage has just been released in cinemas worldwide and it is probably not the last time that Peyton and Johnson will collaborate with each other. In an interview with Collider, Brad Peyton eulogised about Dwayne Johnson and gave reasoning about why they are great together.

Here is what Brad Peyton had to say in full:

For me, it’s interesting because we both come from nothing, from a little bit on the wrong side of the tracks, we worked our way up, and we’re around the same age. There are many differences, like I’m not a golden god, but there’s a work ethic there and a drive. I’ve learned a lot from working with him. When I was a really poor, young, aspiring filmmaker, I watched and read everything that I could. I would read every book on filmmaking and watch every interview, and I remember seeing an interview with Dwayne for the Gridiron Gang, and I thought to myself, ‘Man, he seems like a genuinely good person.’”

I was 21 years old and I was like, ‘Out of all the stars in the world, I think I’d get along with him.’ It was somewhat naive, but that thing in him is what drew me to working with him. And then, when I working with him, I was like, ‘He is that thing. He is a genuinely good, hard-working person, who has his heart in the right place and an abundance of talent.’ I can work with him because I relate to him, but he has all of these superpowers that I don’t have. It’s a really interesting working relationship. Ultimately, what’s great about it, when we get together, is that I feel we make each other better. The end product becomes greater than the sum of the parts, which is not always the case. I feel really, really fortunate that that’s how we work.”
