Former WWE star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will play former football player Nick Schuyler in the film adaption of Schuyler's memoir "Not Without Hope." The real life story is about Schuyler and three friends getting stranded at sea after a storm capsized their ship in 2009 in which Schuyler was the only survivor. You can read more at

Shore's Slant: It will be interesting to see what the reaction is to this film. The family of one of the men who died on the trip, Marquis Cooper, has maintained that Schuyler's story is false, though I don’t believe any of them has ever gone so far as to accuse Schuyler of foul play. They simply discount his story as completely true. The Coast Guard investigation did affirm Schuyler's account of what happened.
