From the troubled production of "All The Pretty Horses" to little seen efforts like "Daddy & Them" and last year's Willie Nelson documentary "The King Of Luck" (which, to be fair, is still look for a home) he hasn't yet matched that initial spark. But audiences in Toronto will get to see if he's turned it around with his latest "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

While action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is currently working on director Michael Bay’s dark comedy “Pain and Gain” in Miami, Florida, he’s had no shortage of movement on future projects.
