When I was a child, I would go to to the arcade with friends – yeah, yeah, who didn’t? One section of the arcade had free games. Once I was out of change, I was over there. There was one game I was obsessed over. The object of the game was simple: as a huge monster, destroy everything in sight. How could a kid not love that? Smash buildings, punch cars, and eat people; it’s all innocent fun. The title of the game was on the mark: Rampage.
It was no secret that there were intentions to bring Rampage to the big screen. Why not? Monster smash; audience applauds. Then something magical happened: Dwayne Johnson was cast in the film adaptation.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? I certainly hope so.
Dwayne Johnson should portray all three monsters. He doesn’t need a costume, makeup, or CG. He just needs to look like himself, raging through a city, punching and kicking buildings down.
Doesn’t that just scream money? It’s definitely deafening my ears.
Rampage is set to film next summer, with a 2017 release date. With that in mind, I sincerely hope that they will release a remake of the game, with the option of playing as Dwayne Johnson, Dwayne Johnson, or Dwayne Johnson. That would get us all back in the arcade.
