Rampage – The Rock to Star in New Film Based on the Classic Arcade Game

Rampage – The classic arcade game turned film

Following the success of his most recent film, San Andreas, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to appear in another similar film.. Except this one is based on Midway’s classic arcade game, Rampage. Details on the plot have not yet been revealed but, needless to day, it will include a giant gorilla, lizard, and wolf, who will rampage all across America and destroy anything that gets in their way!

The script is set to be written by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop), and produced by Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Hercules, Red Dawn), who frequently collaborates with Johnson. The New Line film is said to be going into production next year, and this will be Johnson’s second video game based film, after starring in 2005’s Doom.

As the original arcade game, Rampage was released in 1986 in arcades, before being ported across dozens of other paltforms. A number of sequels have also been produced but, by the time the film is released, it will not have seen the screen since it’s last release, Total Destruction, more than 10 years ago.
