Dwayne Johnson Shares Two New Set Photos of ‘RAMPAGE’

As production continues, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shared two new photos on his Instagram from the set of RAMPAGE. Johnson has shared new plot and character details and offers a look at his two other human costars– Naomie Harris and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

A New Line Cinema production adaption, the film also stars Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, P.J Byrne, Marley Shelton, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, and Mett Gerald.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creatures that was once his friend.

Marcus Viscidi, Johnson, Dany Garcia and Jeff Pierson executive produce, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. Brad Peyton directs from a script by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel.

Released in 1986, the original Rampage 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 for the title as well, adding more types 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.

When my bestie, George (an extremely rare Albino silverback) gets hangry. Hungry + angry. Blown away by this technology. Makin' a cool movie for you guys here on set of #Rampage. When George (and a crocodile and grey wolf) are infected they grow at a rapid rate to gigantic proportions rampaging across the country. In this scene our Oscar winning Weta Digital (Lord of the Rings, Avatar etc) is using their ground breaking "performance capture" to bring "George" the Silverback to life. It uses over 30 special cameras to "see" the performance of my co-actor @tallie7487 allowing the digital artists to make the most realistic and badass animations possible. He's wearing a "facial capture helmet" and we can record every muscle movement and expression and emotion of George as goes on a rampage. Jason studied gorillas for months preparing for this performance capture role – facial expressions, sounds, habits and emotions. Spectacular performance. What a learning curve for me and such a pleasure to help produce these amazing artists who come to set daily to be game changers. More to come. Amazing technology. #WETADigital #Hydraulx #Rampage #MyHangryBestFriend
