Last month it was announced that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will star in the film adaption of the Rampage arcade game. Today, the mega-star announced via Instagram that San Andreas director Brad Peyton has signed on to direct the big screen adaption of the arcade classic.
The project has been in the works since 2011, and with the signing of Johnson and Peyton, the pieces are now in place for a big-screen blockbuster. For those unfamiliar with Rampage, the arcade game puts players in the role of three monsters — whose mission is to wipe out everything in their path. The only thing stopping the urban destruction are military forces who must turn the beasts back.
In classic Johnson fashion, the man didn’t pull any punches when sharing his thoughts on the upcoming feature. “Promise y’all our goal is to raise the bar and make a movie that’s epic, cool, entertaining and most importantly… has heart. And a cool movie star. Who’s bad ass. And bald. And tattooed. And smells good. Most of the time,” said The Rock.
