Dwayne Johnson to Star in Film Adaptation of 'Rampage' Video Game
New Line is bringing a live-action adaptation of popular '80s video game Rampage to the big screen with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.
The project reunites Johnson, New Line and producer Beau Flynn, who teamed for the hit disaster pic San Andreas.
Heat Vision breakdown
Given the success of San Andreas and its more than $400 million worldwide box-office haul, New Line is eager to get Rampage off the ground and is eyeing a 2016 summer production start.
Based on the Midway Arcade Game, the script is being written by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop). There's no director attached at this point.
Johnson is having one of the highest-profile summers of any actor. In addition to San Andreas, he starred in the mammoth hit Furious Seven. And his heavily promoted series Ballers premiered on HBO on June 21.
He is repped by WME, Garcia Companies and Gang Tyre. Engle is handled by Original Artists and Mosaic.
