If SplashReport's information is correct, then Rampage is geared to be one of the most outrageous movies when it hits cinemas on April 20, 2018. As Dwayne Johnson fronts the video game adaptation alongside the likes of Joe Manganiello, Malin Akerman, Jack Lacy, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Marley Shelton, one synopsis has made its way online.
It must be noted that the plot does not come directly from Warner Brothers or New Line and as such, it should not be taken as gospel. However, from the source material gleaned from the 80s arcade game, it is not a stretch to think that this will be the basis for the movie. Especially since it takes pointers from other action features that saw animals turn into monsters.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Monsters
Transitioning from all corners of the US, the blockbuster appears to be concluding in Chicago. Here is what the source had to say about Rampage:
"The first privately owned space station is destroyed by a mysterious experiment done onboard. Three canisters crash land on Earth. One lands in the gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, the other in the plains of Wyoming and the last one in the Florida Everglades. The Griffin Technologies Group, headed by two siblings (Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy), tries to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing before the government finds out. It's too late because the canisters have infected a gorilla named George, a wolf in Wyoming and an alligator. They start evolving and growing exponentially. To cover their tracks, the Griffin idiots decided to unleash a beacon that will make all three large animals head toward one destination: their head office located in the Willis Tower in Chicago."
Diesel Throws Down On Rock In Furious Fight Frenzy
As he was walking and talking on the red carpet of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, UFC fighter Tyron Woodley indicated that the on again, publicly off again beef between The Fate of the Furious co-stars Vin Diesel and Johnson continues to linger. Recalling a discussion he had with the Baby Groot voiceover artist, Woodley said that he would back Diesel's opponent if a fight ensued.
"Vin Diesel yelled at me yesterday at the party because I said in a fight versus him and The Rock, I gave it to The Rock," Woodley told TMZ Sports. "So he pulled up on me. Not in a violent way but he said 'C’mon man, I would flex on The Rock.”
As Diesel was promoting the 8th Fast and Furious extravaganza, he was of the belief that two big ego's were always going to push the limits on set.
"It’s not always easy being an alpha. And it’s two alphas," he said. "I don’t think the world really realises how close we are, in a weird way. I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don’t think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work in this franchise. In my house, he’s Uncle Dwayne. "
