The Rock Thinks a "Rampage" Movie Is a Good Idea

The Rock has released story details on his new venture: a film adaptation of Midway’s 1986 Rampage. Boy, Hollywood must really be running out of ideas if they are looking at properties that a lot of people haven’t even played or remember. Mr. Johnson will play a member of an anti-poaching squad who sees his animalsآ—a gorilla, alligator, and wolfآ—transformed into those big monsters you play as in the game when they are infected by a serum.

Released in 1986, the original Rampage put players in control of one of three monsters: A giant ape named George; a giant lizard name 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 even more types of monsters to the playable roster and extending their path of destruction into the cosmos and even back in time. New Line will release the Rampage movie to theaters on April 20, 2018.
