Dwayne Johnson explains plot for upcoming “Rampage” movie
Giant monsters are back in style in the movie world these days, with the success of Pacific Rim and most recently King Kong’s return to the silver screen. With a big budget battle looming between the great ape and the other “King of Monsters”, now is the perfect time for a throwback to another nostalgic element – the “Rampage” arcade game!
Yup, there is a movie about the famous video game where players choose between a giant monkey, lizard, and werewolf and destroy buildings. Who would star in such a crazy movie? Why, Dwayne Johnson of course! Over on his Instagram, he dropped some big details about the movie, along with a pic of him bulking up (but when isn’t he?):
“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.”
The movie is expected to be released in 2018 and will also feature Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello and Oscar nominee Naomie Harris.
