Johnson teased us with details about the film focusing on the world's largest skyscraper that's on fire. The setup is "A towering inferno almost a mile into the sky and my wife and kids are trapped on the top floor," he said.

Johnson's character will be a disabled war vet and an FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader. Although which disability Johnson's character will have isn't specified, portraying a character with physical challenges is a welcomed representation in Hollywood for increasing awareness of those who have served and suffered.


"This character is inspired by the thousands of disabled US veterans and war heroes I’ve had the honor of shaking hands with over the years," he said on his post, and "This character is also an homage to the every day man and woman who, despite all odds, will dig deep and do everything possible to protect and save their family."
