Variety is reporting that Jake Lacy and Breanne Hill have joined the cast of New Line's upcoming arcade game adaptation, Rampage, which will star Dwayne Johnson (The Fate of the Furious) in the lead role. The pair are now the latest actors to join the ever-growing cast, that in addition to Johnson, recently added Academy Award-nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Joe Manganiello (The Batman), and Marley Shelton (Scream 4) in key roles. Brad Peyton (San Andreas) is helming the feature with a script from Ryan Engle (Non-Stop), Carlton Cuse (San Andreas), Ryan Condal (Hercules), and Adam Sztykiel (Due Date), who completed revisions on the most recent draft. Plot details are being kept under lock-and-key, but the film is expected to remain fairly faithful to the classic game as it will feature "a monstrously transformed gorilla, crocodile, and wolf, who wreak havoc on North American cities and landmarks."

It looks like Dwayne Johnson could be getting some more help going up against the colossal creatures in Rampage, as Joe Manganiello and Marley Shelton have reportedly set their sights on key roles in the film.
According to THR, Manganiello (Pee-wee's Big Holiday, True Blood, the upcoming The Batman) is in talks to play the "leader of a private military group" in New Line Cinema's film adaptation of the ’80s Midway arcade game Rampage, which featured massive monsters wreaking havoc in cities. Shelton (Lifetime's The Lottery, Scream 4, Death Proof), meanwhile, is in negotiations to play a "scientist and astronaut" (the latter of which may conjure up images of space cities being demolished in the 1999 sequel Rampage 2: Universal Tour).
Should Manganiello and Shelton officially come aboard the project, they would join Johnson and Naomie Harris in the cast's ranks. According to THR, Harris will play "a geneticist with »

“Younger” star Nico Tortorella will play Lyle Menendez and “Glee” alum Myko Olivier will play Erik Menendez. “American Crime’s” Benito Martinez has been cast as their father, Jose Menendez, who was accused of sexually abusing his sons throughout the case.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
As art student Skye, Aimee Teegarden finds herself caught up in the deadly curse of The Tape in Paramount Pictures’ Rings. The inevitable meeting between Skye and Samara is one of my favorite scenes from the film, so I was excited to speak with Teegarden about smashing screens in that intense scene, working with Johnny Galecki, and what creeped her out the most on set.
Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today about Rings. I really enjoyed your character [Skye] in particular.
Aimee Teegarden: It was such a fun role—she [Skye] was so much fun to play. My dad was there [at the screening] with me last night and he was like, “Wow, you were really angry, weren’t you?”
Skye shares many scenes with Gabe, and it’s great to see Johnny Galecki play this totally different role than people know him as. What was it like working with Johnny in that capacity? »
