Rampage may have the best cast we’ve ever seen on a monster movie, let alone a video game adaptation. In addition to Dwayne Johnson, Malin Akerman and Joe Manganiello it can now sport everyone’s favourite paternal demon hunter/baseball bat wielding sociopath. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, seen most recently on The Walking Dead, has joined the cast as Agent Morgan. Described as an agent of OGA (We’re betting Office of Giant Anthropods or something similar) Deadline describe him as someone who ‘rolls with serious swagger and attitude’
So Morgan’s got this in the bag, basically.
The movie, based on classic ‘80s video game Rampage, sees three giant monsters wreak havoc across the US and only Dwayne Johnson’s character can stop them. It’s director Brad Peyton has worked with Johnson before on San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island so he’s got the action skills to pull this off. We’ll find out 20 April next year just how the movie hangs together.
