New Line’s “San Andreas,” starring Dwayne Johnson, will hit theaters on June 5, 2015 in 2D and 3D.

The film, directed by Brad Peyton, centers on a massive earthquake that hits California and one man who must make the treacherous journey across the state to rescue his estranged daughter.

“The Conjuring” scribes Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes wrote the most recent draft. Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio sold the original pitch based on an original idea by Beau Flynn.

The “San Andreas” project has been in development since 2011 with New Line-based Flynn producing through his Flynn Picture Co. banner with Tripp Vinson. Village Roadshow is also producing.

New Line is planning to move into production on “San Andreas” in the second quarter. The Warner Bros. division, Johnson and Flynn previously worked together on “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”

“San Andreas” is the second title to land on the June 5 release date. Fox has already dated animated “B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations” for the same slot.
