WWE wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne 'Rock' Johnson is in talks to star in new Disney movie Moana.

The much-anticipated new Disney film will tell the story of an adventurous teenager who sets out on an impossible-looking mission to fulfil her ancestors' quest, reported Contactmusic.

Johnson, 42, who has previously starred in Pain & Gain and the Fast & Furious franchise - is wanted to voice the part of a demi-god known as Maui.

Johnson's proposed character joins Moana as she sets out on her mission to find a fabled island. The pair must tackle an unenviable array of challenges, including a giant see creature, as they try to reach their end destination.

The new Disney animation is being led by Ron Clements and John Musker, the directors who were responsible for Aladdin, The Princess And The Frog and The Little Mermaid.

However, before possibly appearing in Moana, Dwayne will star in Furious 7, the latest film in the Fast & Furious franchise.

The film will also feature Vin Diesel and will mark the final on-screen appearance of Paul Walker, who died in a car accident on November 30, 2013.
