I’m never one for films adapted from video games as almost all the time they turn out to be a disappointment. But, I just can’t help but be excited about witnessing the classic arcade game being turned into a big-screen motion picture, and we have some news regarding who will pen this badboy.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line has hired Ryan Engle (On a Clear Day, Killing On Carnival Row) to pen the big-screen adaptation of the 1980′s arcade classic Rampage.
“The game revolves around a trio of mild-mannered humans who are mutated into a giant Godzilla-like lizard, a werewolf and a gorilla, respectively, and fight the military while destroying buildings. Players controlled the monsters and moved up levels when a city was destroyed.“
John Rickard is producing the feature while New Line is hoping to make an Independence Day-style flick on a small budget.
Look for more soon as this one s beginning to roll out.
