“The Rock” is Surrounded by Devastation in New Photo from ‘Rampage’

We have yet another new photo from the set of the upcoming Rampage, directed by Brad Peyton and based on the popular video game starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The film is currently filming in Atlanta, which is produced by Beau Flynn, John Rickard, and Hiram Garcia. Check out the full-sized image down below!

This new photo from the set of Rampage is captioned: “Do not go gentle. Grateful to put in work w/ our hard working crew on the eve of our Independence.

Based on the classic Midway video game, 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 (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (TV’s “Billions”), Jake Lacy (TV’s “Girls”), Joe Manganiello (TV’s “True Blood”), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) as well as 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 (TV’s “Daredevil”).

Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle, based on the video game Rampage.

Rampage will destroy theaters on April 202018.
