Seven Bucks Productions

Dwayne
Johnson

Cofounder

The former pro wrestler remains Hollywood’s highest paid movie star, topping Forbes’ list with nearly $90 million in earnings, thanks to paydays from the likes of Netflix’s “Red Notice” and Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” (both set for 2021) and his Project Rock partnership with Under Armour — the company’s bestselling brand. In March 2020, Johnson launched the tequila brand Teremana, which is on track to break spirit industry records with close to 300K 9-liter cases sold in its first year, and he also acquired the XFL alongside business partner Dany Garcia. But wait, there’s more: He’s invested in personal-finance service Acorns, ice cream company Salt & Straw and Voss water. Johnson is going superhero in DC’s “Black Adam,” which he’s producing through his Seven Bucks prodco with Garcia, and his NBC partnership is expanding beyond “Titan Games” with the comedy “Young Rock” — about, yes, a young Johnson — in which he’ll appear and serve as executive producer.
