"It was [happening] for a minute, but then it kind of just went away as things happen in Hollywood," he told MTV News.

"For a minute, [I] was interested in it, and then it went away."

The wrestler will instead be focusing on his role in Brett Ratner's Hercules.

"Understand, for me when I was a kid, Hercules was always a hero of mine, from Steve Reeves to the multiple guys who have played Hercules, but the idea and the notion of this man," he said.

"When I first got into movies, I thought, 'Gosh, I would love to do that one day'. I always thought that the version of Hercules that I want to play was one that was more dramatic and survived in barren lands and not necessarily slick in any way or anything like that.

"It's been around and been on my mind for some time."

Johnson will next be seen in Fast & Furious 6, Pain & Gain and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
