A “big announcement” is on the way from two of the world’s most well-known moguls.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted a photo on Instagram Sunday night of him and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos with their arms around each other on a beach accompanied by a caption teasing an upcoming partnership between Amazon Studios and Seven Bucks Production, the production company founded by Johnson and his manager, Dany Garcia.

“Exciting week coming up as our @amazonstudios & @sevenbucksprod come together for a big announcement to deliver fun to families around the world,” Johnson wrote. “Shared passions and always putting in the hard work with our own two hands. I look forward to this one, brother.”

He added that “Teremana is on the way,” a the small-batch tequila company he launched in March of last year.

Johnson – who made an estimated $87.5 million last year and topped Forbes’ list of the highest paid actors – also joked in the caption about his and Bezos’ different life trajectories. Bezos, whose fortune is worth roughly $200 billion, is the world’s richest person.

“One of us graduated Summa Cum Laude from Princeton and the other once asked his criminal law professor if he could ‘slip me a few answers’ so he could guarantee an A on his midterm exam,” he wrote.

Despite their respective fortunes, however, the two men kept it casual in sunglasses and t-shirts, and Johnson even sported a blue Amazon polo for the occasion.

“When I rock my Amazon shirt for our meetings to talk shop it sorta makes us twinning,” he wrote.

While details are scarce about the upcoming project, Johnson’s production company is behind a range of his recent movies, including “Hobbs & Shaw” and “Skyscraper,” as well as more family-friendly fare like “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Jungle Cruise.” Amazon Studios, meanwhile, is behind shows like “Jack Ryan” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and films like “Late Night” and “Manchester by the Sea,” plus a slew of children’s programming.
