There's no denying that Dwayne Johnson is one of Hollywood's most hardworking actors. And now, he is slated to jump into what appears to be another gigantic spectacle of a movie; the film adaptation of "Rampage" the beloved tower arcade game in which monsters destroy cities. Johnson took to Instagram to give some plot details and a sense of how the game has been constructed as a story, which will center on an anti-poaching unit led by Johnson and his albino-gorilla friend, George, who becomes one of the famous monsters from the game thanks to a groundbreakings serum. I can’t say that this sounds particularly original but the storylines in movies like this almost never matter – it’s the performers, the direction, the CGI, and the overall look of the film that will decide whether this is a success.
Here’s Johnson’s text from the Instagram post:
"Goin' primal. Good to finally have boots on the ground here in Georgia for production of RAMPAGE. I head up an anti poaching unit out of Rwanda. My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named, George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world. George not happy. Me not happy. When animals like you, they lick you. When they don’t like you, they kill you. I will hunt down the bad people who did this to my best friend. And when I find them, I will not lick them.
