Dwayne Johnson Shares Story Details of ‘RAMPAGE’

April 30, 2017

While production for RAMPAGE video game adaption is currently underway on Atlanta, Georgia, star Dwayne Johnson has shared story details in a new Instagram post.

Dwayne Johnson and Naomi Harris star in the adaption of the classic Midway arcade game. Also starring Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, 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 AndreasBates 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.

Goin' primal. 🦍 Good to finally have boots on the ground here in Georgia for production of #RAMPAGE. I head up an anti poaching unit out of Rwanda. My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named, George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world. George not happy. Me not happy. When animals like you, they lick you. When they don't like you, they kill you. I will hunt down the bad people who did this to my best friend. And when I find them, I will not lick them. We have the best VFX monster making team (WETA) on the planet. Our actors and crew have been working very hard to raise the monster genre bar. As always, let's have some fun. Let's shoot. 🤙🏾 #PrimalDNA #George #Lizzy #Ralph #RAMPAGE
