– Deadline reports that director Brad Peyton has signed on to direct New Line Cinema’s Rampage, which features The Rock and is based on the hit 1980’s arcade game. The Rock and Peyton just teamed up for the hit movie San Andreas. Seven Bucks Production, The Rock’s company with his ex-wife Dany Garcia will also be producing in a to-be-determined capacity.
Plot details for the movie are still being kept a secret but Deadline reports that the focus of the movie will be consistent with the game as three giant monsters – a gorilla, a wolf and a lizard – wreak havoc on major cities and landmarks across North America. We now know that The Rock will be battling the monsters as Deadline reports he will be “standing in their path.”
Rampage begins production in summer 2016, after Rock finishes Fast & Furious 8, and is scheduled to be released in 2017 some time.
