Australian singer-songwriter Kylie Minogue has joined New Line’s earthquake thriller “San Andreas” opposite Dwayne Johnson.

Archie Panjabi, Art Parkinson, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario also star in the film, which recaps a 9.0 quake hitting California. Minogue’s role is being kept under wraps.

Even though the movie is set in California, nearly all of it is being shot in Australia. Johnson portrays a copter pilot who rescues his daughter in San Francisco, where less than a week of shooting is taking place — mostly “plate” shots to establish location.

Brad Peyton is directing from a script by “The Conjuring” scribes Carey and Chad Hayes, with a previous draft written by Carlton Cuse. Beau Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. along with Village Roadshow.

Minogue’s acting credits include “Moulin Rouge,” “Holy Motors” and “Jack and Diane.” She’s repped by CAA.
