Dwayne Johnson Will Bring 80s Video Game ‘Rampage’ To The Big Screen

Dwayne Johnson continues to raise his Hollywood star in the action movie genre — and it’s apparently not stopping anytime soon!

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the Furious 7 star will help bring the popular 1980s video game, Rampage, to the big screen in a live-action adaptation.

According to the report, Dwayne Johnson will reunite with the same team that helped make the box-office hit movie San Andreas — New Line Cinema and producer Beau Flynn.

Thanks to the international success of the earthquake disaster film, New Line is reportedly eager to get the ball rolling on the Rampage project, with Dwayne Johnson in a leading role.

It was also confirmed that Ryan Engle, the screenwriter of the 2014 action thriller Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson, will write the script.

The 1986 arcade game, released by Midway, allowed players to fight as mutated humans that were turned into monsters while they fight against military forces that are desperately trying to take them out.

Dwayne Johnson seems to be filling up his future acting schedule with more and more potential box-office hits.

The WWE star-turned-actor is still riding the box-office wave of San Andreas — a film that has generated over $415 million worldwide since its release last month, according to Box Office Mojo.

The confirmed eighth installment of the blockbuster Fast and Furious franchise, as well as Dwayne’s involvement in the DC Comics film Shazam, are just two of the many projects that could become box-office hits for the 43-year-old actor in the near future.

Johnson also hit the jackpot with the premiere of his new HBO series, Ballers, on Sunday night.

In regards to the recently announced Rampage film starring Dwayne Johnson, multiple reports confirm that New Line Cinema is focusing on starting production in the summer of 2016.
