Production Begins on ‘RAMPAGE’ Starring Dwayne Johnson
Producer Hiram Garcia has revealed on his Twitter that RAMPAGE has officially begun production in Atlanta, Georgia. The photo features Malin Akerman, who plays the villain and Jake Lacy.
Dwayne Johnson and Naomi Harris star in the adaption of the classic Midway arcade game. Also starring Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Breanne Hill, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
This film marks the third collaboration between Johnson, producer Beau Flynn, director Brad Peyton and New Line after working on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas.
Carlton Cuse (San Andreas, Bates Motel) and his Colony co-creator Ryan Condal rewrote the script by Non-Stop screenwriter Ryan Engle, which will involve Johnson going toe-to-toe with the game’s three original beasties.
Released in 1986, the original game puts players in control of one of three monsters: A giant ape named George; a giant lizard named Lizzy; or a giant werewolf named Ralph. The game saw the monsters running amok across the United States, fighting the military, and destroying key landmarks. Several sequels were developed, adding even more type of monsters to the playable roster and extending their path of destruction into the cosmos and even back in time.
Rampage hits theaters on April 20, 2018.
