Having been wowing audiences recently as thorough bastard Negan in The Walking Dead, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has now signed on to appear in the Dwayne Johnson-headlined Rampage.
Courtesy of Deadline, Morgan will play Agent Russell in this adaptation of the fan favourite video game. That role is described as being a government sort brimming with attitude and who works for an agency known as OGA.
As well as Johnson, Morgan joins a cast that also includes Naomie Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Breanne Hill, and his Watchmen co-star Malin Akerman.
For those not familiar with Rampage, the original arcade game was released in 1986 and allowed players to control one of three monsters. These were 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, Rampage is set for an April 20th, 2018 release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
