RAMPAGE (2018): Dwayne Johnson Reveals Details About Film

Dwayne Johnson Rampage Video Game

Dwayne Johnson Shares Story Info About New Line Cinema’s Rampage

Fast and Furious series star Dwayne Johnson has offered quite a bit of information about the planned movie adaptation of Rampage.

Based on the popular video game series from Midway, Rampage will show what happens when three giant monsters suddenly appear and embark on a campaign of destruction. Keeping in line with the source material, the film will feature a gorilla, lizard, and wolf as the monsters.

For his part, Johnson took to Instagram to share a photo of himself getting ready to shoot in Georgia as well as information about the plot. According to his post, he will play the leader of an anti-poaching group who has a pet gorilla named George. One day, George, as well as an alligator and wolf, are exposed to an experimental serum that causes them to grow to gigantic size and go on a – you guessed it – rampage. It’s up to Johnson to track down those responsible for this and stop them before the monsters destroy the world.

Per Superherohype, the source of this story:

Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris star in the Rampage, an adaptation of the classic Midway arcade game. The cast also includes Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Breanne Hill, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

This will mark the third collaboration between Johnson, producer Beau Flynn, director Brad Peyton and New Line, having worked on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas together as well.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
