Principal photography begins Tuesday in Australia on "San Andreas," starring Dwayne Johnson as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot who makes his way from Los Angeles to San Francisco with his estranged wife to save their daughter after a magnitude-9.0 quake on the infamous fault.

The action thriller from New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures reunites Johnson with director Brad Peyton and producer Beau Flynn, who collaborated on "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island."

The film also stars Carla Gugino ("Night at the Museum," TV's "Entourage"), Alexandra Daddario ("Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," TV's "True Detective") and Archie Panjabi (TV's "The Good Wife"), as well as Hugo Johnstone-Burt (Australian TV's "Home and Away") and Art Parkinson (TV's "Game of Thrones").

"San Andreas," which is slated to open in theater on June 5, 2015, will be shot on location in the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Australia, as well as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
