There have been so many attempts to turn a hugely successful video game franchise into a hit movie franchise and, while the Resident Evil movie franchise has been a financial success, there are not actually any video game movies which have given the fans what they really want. It is quite surprising then, that there are still so many new video game movies being lined up for the next few years.
One such video game, which is being adapted for the big screen, is the Rampage game, which saw a variety of different giant animals going on a rampage and smashing up towns, for no real reason at all. There has actually been some interest in the Rampage movie, with Hollywood powerhouse Dwayne Johnson on board to star in the project, and Dwayne has now given a bit of insight into the plot for the Rampage film.
Johnson took to his official Instagram account to post a picture of himself working out, along with the caption, "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."
He added, "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".
Dwayne Johnson will be joined by a very exciting cast for Rampage, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Joe Manganiello, Malin Akerman, and Naomie Harris, plus many more. Rampage is being directed by Brad Peyton, with the movie aiming for a release date of April 13, 2018 in the UK and April 20, 2018 in the US.
