RAMPAGE in Talks with Joe Manganiello and Marley Shelton

The Dwayne Johnson-headlined adaptation of classic video game Rampage is eyeing two new cast members.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Joe Manganiello and Marley Shelton are both in talks to join the film. Manganiello is likely best known for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy and Magic Mike XXL – not to mention having recently been cast as Deathstroke in The Batman – while Shelton will be familiar for her appearances in Planet Terror and Scream 4. The current story is that Manganiello is up for the role of the leader of a private military group, and that Shelton is in negotiations to play a scientist. Already on board to join Johnson in the movie is Naomie Harris.

For those not familiar with Rampage, the original arcade game was released in 1986 and allowed players to control one of three monsters. These was a giant ape named George, a giant lizard named Lizzy, and a giant werewolf named Ralph. Players would get to battle across the United States as they fought the military. That game would be followed by several sequels, which in turn brought more new characters and monsters into the fold as the action moved to the rest of the globe and even up to the stars.

To be directed by San Andreas’ Brad Peyton, the current plan is for Rampage to be released on April 20th, 2018.
