24 July 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It's Dwayne Johnson's world, and we're just living it. He can bring in the box office bucks, move from action to comedy with ease, and make it all look pretty damn charming. It's no wonder Hollywood is gifting him with big screen properties to lead, and two of them have landed directors. Deadline reports that video game adaptation "Rampage" will reteam The Rock with his "San Andreas" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" director Brad Peyton.

Plot specifics are being kept under wraps, but they will probably involve Johnson punching enormous reptiles or otherwise. Meanwhile, THR says that Seth Gordon will get behind the camera of the forever developing "Baywatch" movie. After numerous hands have tried to make it work over the past decade, the concept will be to go down »

Dwayne Johnson will reteam with his San Andreas director for Rampage

Brad Peyton, the director of this year’s disaster epic San Andreas, is to reteam with that film’s star Dwayne Johnson for the big screen adaptation of the video game Rampage. The duo, who previously worked on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which we thought was pretty good, will tackle the film version of the arcade classic, whih is written by Non-Stop scribe Ryan Engle.

The film is expected to start shooting next summer for a 2017 release.

Dwayne Johnson is currently shooting Central Intelligence with Kevin Hart (where he did this), and will next tackle the eighth film in The Fast and Furious series.

Rampage will see him take on a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf as they wreak havoc across America. It is based on the 1986 Midway arcade classic of the same name. Remember this?

Dwayne Johnson's Rampage movie lands San Andreas director

22 July 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dwayne Johnson and Brad Peyton are to reunite for the upcoming movie based on the 1986 monster-packed videogame, Rampage.

One of the surprise hits of the year has been the Dwayne Johnson-headlined disaster movie, San Andreas. The film was expected to do decent business, but its $460m global take has put it ahead of films such as Tomorrowland and Terminator: Genisys. Furthermore, it was made for a comparatively lean $110m. Warner Bros will be pleased it gave the movie the go ahead.

The film marked the second collaboration between Johnson and director Brad Peyton, following their union on another surprise hit, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. And now they're going for the hat trick, with the news that Peyton has been hired to direct the big screen take on the videogame Rampage.

News of this project first broke a few weeks back, with Johnson signing up for the movie take »

Brad Peyton Directing Dwayne Johnson In Rampage; New Line Wants A San Andreas Sequel

22 July 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Pixels prepares to duke it out with Southpaw at the box office this weekend, New Line is bringing the team behind this summer’s San Andreas back together for video game adaptation Rampage. Brad Peyton is in talks with the studio to helm the project, which will reteam him with star Dwayne Johnson and producer Beau Flynn.

Based on the ’80s Midway Arcade game, Rampage will center on one man (Johnson) standing between us and total annihilation as three monsters – a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf – create utter havoc as they tear across North America. Giant, fantastical creatures seems like a logical next step for the actor formerly known as The Rock, who proved unshaken by the worst Mother Nature had to offer.

Peyton has proven extremely capable at staging scenes of CGI carnage without losing the humans at the heart of the action, so he’s a »

'Aladdin' Live-Action Prequel Movie Happening at Disney

15 July 2015 5:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney is digging deep into its well of animated movies, putting a live action prequel to the 1992 blockbuster Aladdin into development, entitled Genies. The studio has brought on screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) to write the screenplay for the project, described as a "live-action comedy adventure" by The Hollywood Reporter. Disney is already planning to have this project, still in early development, spawn a live action remake of Aladdin itself.

The original Aladdin movie is based on a centuries-old Arabic folk tale about a lowly street kid who finds a magical lamp with a genie (Robin Williams), who grants him three wishes, while the nefarious Jafar tries to obtain this lamp to gain power over the land. The prequel Genies is said to focus on the realm of these magical entities, and how Aladdin's particular genie becomes enslaved in this lamp. Aladdin took in an »

Musicians Union Sues Sony Over Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’

8 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Federation of Musicians is suing Sony Music Entertainment for allegedly violating its contract in the Michael Jackson documentary “This Is It.”

The suit, filed in federal court in New York, alleges that the artists were misled to record work for “This Is It” with the understanding that they were working on a phonographic record instead of a film score.

Sony had no immediate response to a request for comment.

“The Sound Recording Labor Agreement, which Sony has signed, covers only recording sessions for records—and prohibits recording film scores,” the union said.

Afm International President Ray Hair said Sony allegedly refused to sign a letter allowing them to use the Afm Motion Picture Agreement for this recording session. As a result, the union asserted, musicians have been unable to collect residuals on the film.

The film, directed by Kenny Ortega, grossed over $260 million worldwide.

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works.

The American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada has sued Paramount Pictures for allegedly breaching its master contract by recording the score to Renee Zellweger’s upcoming film “Same Kind of Different as Me” in Slovakia.

8 June 2015 7:24 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'San Andreas' movie with Dwayne Johnson. 'San Andreas' movie box office: $100 million domestic milestone today As the old saying (sort of) goes: If you build it, they will come. Warner Bros. built a gigantic video game, called it San Andreas, and They have come to check out Dwayne Johnson perform miraculous deeds not seen since ... George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, released two weeks earlier. Embraced by moviegoers, hungry for quality, original storylines and well-delineated characters – and with the assistance of 3D surcharges – the San Andreas movie debuted with $54.58 million from 3,777 theaters on its first weekend out (May 29-31) in North America. Down a perfectly acceptable 52 percent on its second weekend (June 5-7), the special effects-laden actioner collected an extra $25.83 million, trailing only the Melissa McCarthy-Jason Statham comedy Spy, (with $29.08 million) as found at Box Office Mojo.* And that's how this original movie – it's not officially a remake, »

San Andreas opens to $113 million worldwide

1 June 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

San Andreas has certainly been no disaster at the box office, having opened to an impressive $113 million worldwide.

The blockbuster movie, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, opened in 60 markets around the globe and shot to the number one position domestically with $53.1 million (knocking Tomorrowland from the top spot) and added another $60 million from its international screenings. This is the biggest non-Fast and Furious or G.I. Joe opening for Dwayne Johnson, who many thought wasn’t able to helm a money making movie after the failure of Hercules last year.

San Andreas‘ $53.1 million is also way ahead of its predicted take of $40 million.
