‘Rampage’ based on the popular 1980’s arcade game has announced an official release date with Dwayne Johnson giving us some insight into what we can expect for the video game turned film.
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
Although it will be later this year before we have more insight into what we can expect from the video game adaptation. Historically video game to film movies haven’t done so well. Dwayne Johnson seems to be making sure to bring all the enthusiasm he always brings for his upcoming projects to the table.
‘Rampage’ is set to hit theaters April 20, 2018
