Dwayne Johnson shares a couple of photos from the set of Rampage

Dwayne Johnson Rampage

In addition to being one of hardest working dudes in show-business, Dwayne Johnson also somehow manages to keep his legions of fans updated with what he's up to on an almost daily basis, and what he's up to now is an adaptation of the 80's arcade-game RAMPAGE. After a trio of giant genetically altered alpha predators run amok and begin destroying everything in their path, Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) and a discredited genetic engineer (Naomie Harris) team up in order to secure an antidote and bring a halt to this global catastrophe. Johnson took to Instagram to highlight a couple of behind-the-scenes photos from the upcoming monster mash, so check 'em out!

 

When my bestie, George (an extremely rare Albino silverback) gets hangry. Hungry + angry. Blown away by this technology. Makin' a cool movie for you guys here on set of #Rampage. When George (and a crocodile and grey wolf) are infected they grow at a rapid rate to gigantic proportions rampaging across the country. In this scene our Oscar winning Weta Digital (Lord of the Rings, Avatar etc) is using their ground breaking "performance capture" to bring "George" the Silverback to life. It uses over 30 special cameras to "see" the performance of my co-actor @tallie7487 allowing the digital artists to make the most realistic and badass animations possible. He's wearing a "facial capture helmet" and we can record every muscle movement and expression and emotion of George as goes on a rampage. Jason studied gorillas for months preparing for this performance capture role - facial expressions, sounds, habits and emotions. Spectacular performance. What a learning curve for me and such a pleasure to help produce these amazing artists who come to set daily to be game changers. More to come. Amazing technology. #WETADigital #Hydraulx #Rampage #MyHangryBestFriend

In addition to Dwayne Johnson (BAYWATCH), the cast of RAMPAGE includes Naomie Harris (MOONLIGHT), Malin Akerman (Billions), Jake Lacy (Girls), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead), P.J. Byrne (THE WOLF OF WALL STREET), Marley Shelton (SOLACE), Breanne Hill (SAN ANDREAS), Jack Quaid (THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE) and Matt Gerald (Daredevil).

The official synopsis for RAMPAGE:

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

RAMPAGE is set for an April 20, 2018 release.
