Joe Manganiello shares a marvelous photo from the Rampage set
Production continues on the upcoming Rampage feature film and co-star Joe Manganiello has shared a photo from the set of the film offering a look at part of his character’s outfit, which features some marvelous flair. As you may know, Manganiello has been cast in the role of Deathstroke for the upcoming Justice League (and potentially The Batman) but that isn’t stopping him from wearing a Punisher logo on his Rampage character’s outfit. Check it out below!
Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris star in the Rampage movie, an adaptation of the classic Midway arcade game. The cast also includes Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Breanne Hill, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
This will mark the third collaboration between Johnson, producer Beau Flynn, director Brad Peyton and New Line, having worked on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas together as well. The latter film earned over $473 million at the global box offices, making it the most successful original blockbuster of summer 2015.
Carlton Cuse (San Andreas) and his Colony co-creator Ryan Condal rewrote the script by Non-Stop screenwriter Ryan Engle, which will involve Johnson going toe-to-toe with the game’s three original beasties.
Released in 1986, the original Rampage put players in control of one of three monsters: A giant ape named George; a giant lizard name Lizzy; or a giant werewolf named Ralph. The game saw the monsters running amok across the United States, fighting the military, and destroying key landmarks. Several sequels were developed for the title as well, adding even more types of monsters to the playable roster and extending their path of destruction into the cosmos and even back in time.
New Line will release the Rampage movie to theaters on April 20, 2018.
