Postby AVERY GUERRA » Tue Jun 23, 2015 11:47 am

There's probably already a thread here for this film but my search results showed nothing so...

More on the feature film adaption of the cult classic video game "RAMPAGE":

Dwayne Johnson to Star in Rampage Film!?

Postby Tyrant_Lizard_King » Tue Jun 23, 2015 11:48 am

Yep you heard right they are making a live action Rampage film starring The Rock! I know they were talking about making one a few years back but this is the first I've heard anything about it since then. What do you think?

And it was quickly merged.

But this is something I'll definitely keep an eye on. It's about time we get a Rampage flick.

I'm hoping this is an actual decent VG adaption which I'm very sure it might not be. Though regardless it is nice to see more and more giant monster/kaiju films being made nowadays.

I'm all for it! Also the rare case where I actually hope they don't take a monster movie too seriously.

Wow, I totally forgot about this. Hopefully it actually gets made, this time. It'll be interesting to see how this movie turns out... if it's faithful to the games, it'll obviously have to be violent as hell, with people being stomped, fried, and eaten by the thousands, and largely on-screen. But it has to portray all of this in a light-hearted, funny manner that can appeal to a wide range of audiences. It'll be a challenge to get right, that's for sure. That's probably a big reason why it's taken so long for progress to be made on it. I'm sure it's doable, though.

In any case, the New Age of Monsters marches on! I love being able to be optimistic about the future of the kaiju genre again.

I thought this was cancelled? We haven't heard a word about it for ages. Good to see it's still around! I wish NetherRealm Studios would make a new game.

I haven't heard about the game in years. This will probably be tongue in cheek, but we could get some good monster action out of it.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

Except Rampage is a long recognized and established franchise.

I saw The Rock's post about it on Instagram and I have to say, I think this film will be great.

He sounds really excited about it and even mentions it was his "all-time favorite game as a kid."

The Rock was a blast in Doom and I played Rampage as a kid. They can not screw this up, it's not like Rampage had a deep story, more just a paper thin excuse to start smashing the world.

We may hear about the story later, but the movie will probably be more action than plot.

This is awesome! Words can't describe how happy I am. One of my favorite actors is going to star in not one, but TWO of the movie adaptations of my favorite video games? Holy balls.
I was just thinking that the only thing missing right about now was a giant crocodile...
