Dwayne Johnson Reveals New ‘Rampage’ Details, Insanely Busy Work Schedule
James Franco and Dwayne Johnson have at least one thing in common: they both make us wonder when they ever have time to sleep. With their insane ability to commit to so many projects and the fact that they never look worse for the wear, we must begin to wonder: are they immortal? In the case of Johnson, at least, we can believe it. The actor has revealed new details on his upcoming Rampage project, along with a GIANT list of his current filming schedule / work commitments — which would make any mere mortal man weep. But yeah, he’s immortal, so.
Johnson took to Instagram to announce that Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal (the creators of the TV series Colony) have been tapped to write a new screenplay for Rampage, the upcoming film based on the classic arcade game. Cuse previously wrote the screenplay for Johnson’s San Andreas, with that film’s director — Brad Peyton — on board for the video game adaptation as well. Cuse is also best known for his television work on shows like LOST and Bates Motel.
The original game wasn’t really restricted by a narrative, giving players the ability to choose a giant monster and proceed to destroy entire cities with it. This makes it an interesting choice for a film as it opens the door for any number of possibilities. According to Johnson, he’ll be spending some time at a wildlife preserve and researching with anti-poaching units, which seems to indicate that he’ll be the badass hero called in to take care of these huge monsters — as if you expected anything else.
Here’s Johnson’s Instagram post, which offers his super-crazy filming schedule. It’s…a lot:
