New Line Cinema has found someone to pen the script for its apparently still-forthcoming movie version of 1986's Midway arcade classic Rampage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Described as a "relative newcomer" to script writing, Ryan Engle will be boiling the game down into a screenplay, while John Rickard of Nightmare on Elm Street and Final Destination 5 fame produces.

Look, we're glad Mr. Engle is getting a paycheck out of this and everything, but we can't help but feel a little slighted. If you needed someone to write your Rampage movie, New Line, all you had to do was ask. Any one of us would have gladly done it for free.
