The Rock will fight a giant gorilla in a 'Rampage' film

Just after rescuing his family from The Big One in San Andreas, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is set to save the world in a film adaptation of Midway's arcade classic Rampage, Deadline reports. Now, you might wonder how a game about a giant gorilla, lizard and wolf destroying cities could be turned into a film, but really, what more do you need than The Rock versus giant monsters? After being first announced back in 2011, it finally looks like the Rampage film is getting off the ground. New Line is still looking for a director, but we hope they settle on someone comfortable with plenty of glorious destruction (more Pacific Rim than San Andreas, please). Production is set to begin next summer, which means we'll likely see the film during 2017's peak popcorn movie season.
