Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“The Walking Dead”) has signed on to join Dwayne Johnson in the film adaptation of the arcade game “Rampage” at New Line Cinema.
The 1980s Midway game follows three giant monsters – a wolf, a lizard and an ape – wreaking havoc across North America. The film has Johnson as the only hope of stopping them.
Morgan will play the cocky and swaggering Agent Russell, the head of a covert government division called OGA. Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald and Breanne Hill also star.
Brad Peyton (“San Andreas”) helms the film from a script by Ryan Engle, Carlton Cuse, Ryan Condal and Adam Sztykiel. Beau Flynn is producing and the film opens April 20th 2018.
