The Official RAMPAGE Synopsis And Full Cast Revealed; Plus BTS Photo!
A few weeks ago our very own Jean-Francois Allaire reported (CLICK HERE) about the story details for Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage, soon after that Johnson him confirmed (CLICK HERE) what we reported and now New Line Cinema has released the official Rampage synopsis.
Global megastar Dwayne Johnson headlines New Line Cinema’s action adventure Rampage, for director/producer Brad Peyton. The film is currently in production on location in Atlanta, for an April 20, 2018 release.
Rampage marks the third collaboration between Johnson, Peyton and Flynn, following the blockbuster “San Andreas.”
Here is the Rampage synopsis and Johnson took to Instagram to reveal a new photo from the film.
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 also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello and Jeffrey Dean Morgan; as well as P.J. Byrne, Marley Shelton, Breanne Hill, and Jack Quaid.
The Rampage synopsis pretty much also confirms what we had reported a few weeks ago.
Day 1. Kicking off production. #RAMPAGE. In our story we have three animals (gorilla, crocodile and a wolf) who fall victim to evil genetic editing, rapidly changing every strand of their DNA so they grow, evolve and mutate. Everything becomes amplified.. their size, strength, speed, agility.. and violent aggression. One of the animals infected – a rare Albino gorilla named, George, is my best friend. George, is played by 6’9 @tallie7487, (Jason Liles, pictured here). Jason has been studying gorillas for months now preparing for this motion capture role. Gorilla movements, body language, and all emotions – joy, pain, sadness, love, aggression etc. It’s insane when you get around this man and how he’s able to brilliantly embody a gorilla. This is the most fascinating advanced VFX/motion cap process I’ve ever worked with in my career. Incredible learning curve for me. We have the best mo-cap team in the world (WETA Digital) working on our gigantic RAMPAGE MONSTERS and you’ll get a taste of this new technology in the upcoming WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES as well as James Cameron’s AVATARS. With all the cool advanced technology in our movie, the #1 thing you’re gonna experience when you watch it, is FUN. Because when my best friend, George no happy, then me no happy. And when me no happy.. bad people become our lunch. #Day1 #KickingOffProduction #RAMPAGE🦍
