San Andreas' Brad Peyton to direct Dwayne Johnson in Rampage

07.23.2015

SAN ANDREAS may not have crossed the billion dollar mark at the global box office, but simply earning $460 million for a movie that is not a sequel or based on an existing franchise means a lot in Hollywood. So, if you cannot necessarily make a sequel to it, do the next best thing and reunite as many involved as possible. That is why Brad Peyton is going to direct RAMPAGE.

We first learned about RAMPAGE last month when it was revealed that Dwayne Johnson would star in the adaptation of the 1980s arcade game. It was already set to be a SAN ANDREAS reunion as producer Beau Flynn worked on both films. Now, Deadline says Peyton is in talks to reunite with Flynn and Johnson for the third time (they all previously collaborated on JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND).

The plot details of the screenplay by NON-STOP scribe Ryan Engle are still unknown beyond the fact that the film will follow the same core monsters from the video game, a wolf, lizard, and gorilla, as they destroy national landmarks with only Dwayne Johnson standing in their way. I would anticipate this to be a very special effects heavy movie that should be a little less dour than SAN ANDREAS in regards to tone. Dwayne Johnson may be one of the only actor who could command such a film on his own and his work with Peyton has proven to be a lot of fun.

RAMPAGE is scheduled to go into production as soon as Johnson finishes work on FAST AND FURIOUS 8 next year which means it will likely be set for a 2017 release.

Ugh, this has no chance of being good.

George was a normal middle aged man, Lizzie was a young woman, and Ralph was an elderly man. They were experimented on at Scumlabs. I hope they make it more like Godzilla (minus the stupid military scenes that made the army look like a bunch of idiots). Maybe even make the part where the monsters are human a twist since many young kids (who this movie will obviously be made for) won't know from the original source.

Idk, it just doesn't add up that this will be any good with the people

Less is more.

Does Dwayne have any kind of project quality filter when he accepts his seemingly endless roles? Clearly not. There must be several identical brothers in his family to accommodate all the films he makes. I've never seen any actor so over-exposed.

Yes I agree, what kind of moron would continue to take the money that Hollywood keeps throwing at him. Like you would say no to ANY of the movies he was offered, give me a break.

Totally agree. I'm sure he has enough standing to make his own choices but he keeps on making these mediocre movies.
His agent must suck! It's a shame because the guy has some real acting chops.

LordMiz: if you don't yet understand that there is more to life than money (especially when he is already very affluent) then I'd suggest you open your eyes.

understandthat there is more to life than money?? Again, give me a break. This isn't some guy desperately selling his soul for a few dollars. The guy is striking while the iron is hot, who the fuck are you to pass judgement on someone taking advantage of the opportunities in front of him?! these are the roles being offered to him, he's taking them, and in doing so likely securing the futures of his grandchildren's grandchildren.

If you were in his position, you would do the exact same

If you were in his position, you would do the exact same thing, and so would anyone else talking shit about his choices. So give it a rest already.
