Sharks, more sharks everywhere. In addition to the giant shark movie Meg finally getting a new director (Eli Roth, details below) another shark movie has found a director. Deadline says Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, of House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, is looking at directing a movie called In the Deep at Sony Pictures. While it sounds a lot like that 2003 found footage thriller Open Water, the descriptions compare it to Gravity or 127 Hours meets Jaws – or any shark movie. It's about a young woman surfing on an isolated beach who gets stranded at a buoy off-shore because of a great white shark in the water and she can't swim back. I'm sure there's more to the story, but that is a scary scenario. As for the other shark movie, it was just revealed a few weeks ago that Eli Roth is taking over directing the »

Dwayne Johnson has signed on to star in a live-action "Rampage" film, which is based on the 1980s Midway Arcade Game and has a script by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop). Story details are being kept a secret, but the game involves three giant monsters - a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf - that wreak havoc on major cities and landmarks across North America. The plan is to begin filming during the summer of 2016, after Johnson completes production on "Fast and Furious 8." »
Remember Rampage, the classic 80s arcade game where you had to trash a selection of high-rise buildings as George (a.k.a. Not King Kong), Lizzie (a.k.a. Not Godzilla) and Ralph (a.k.a. Giant Werewolf)? Well, it’s coming to a big screen near you, and Dwayne Johnson is set to star.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Johnson will team up with San Andreas producer Beau Flynn for a live-action adaptation of the Midway video game for New Line Cinema. The project is yet to find itself a director, but Ryan Engle (Non-Stop) is currently penning the script.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but you’d have to imagine Johnson will find himself leading the battle for survival against the rampaging monsters.

So, are shark movies a thing now? I suppose it'll take three to officially make it a trend, but Eli Roth was recently slated to helm "Meg," and now another predator pic is getting in the water. Deadline reports that "Orphan," "Non-Stop," and "Run All Night" helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is eyeballing the director's chair for "In The Deep." Penned by Tony Jaswinski, the story centers on a young woman clinging to a buoy twenty yards off shore of an isolated beach, with a great white shark in her path to safety. Yikes. Even more, this one is being compared to "127 Hours," "Jaws," and "Gravity," so basically, it'll be intense. Hollywood is going to make it scary to get in the water again, but I mostly hope that if Collet-Serra does the movie, he casts Liam Neeson, and we get to watch the actor punch a shark. »

While it looked back in March like Now You See Me’s Louis Leterrier would be diving into shark survival thriller In The Deep, it would seem he’s decided to stay on dry land for now. Instead, Deadline reports that Non-Stop/ Run All Night man Jaume Collet-Serra is interested in dipping his toes in the briny stuff instead. Anthony Jaswinski’s script sparked a lot of interest from the studios last autumn, and Sony was quick to snap it up. The fictional tale finds a surfer attacked by a shark at a lonely sea spot who ends up bleeding and marooned on a buoy in the ocean. Her main problem, besides the blood loss? The hungry creature is still gliding through the water around her, cutting her off from help. Producers Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem of freshly-formed Weimaraner Republic Pictures are behind the project they’re calling “127 Hours meets Jaws”.Collet-Serra, »
Anthony Jaswinski penned the Black List script which follows a young female surfer who is attacked by a shark and ends up stranded on a buoy twenty yards offshore of an isolated beach.

The Rock is going on a Rampage! After defeating an earthquake in San Andreas, the former WWE champion will turn his attention to a trio of giant monsters in a film adaptation of the classic Midway video game. Variety report that Johnson will also produce for New Line along with Beau Flynn, with Ryan Engle (Non-Stop) currently working on the script. In the game players took control of either a massive gorilla (think King Kong), lizard (think Godzilla), or a wolf (think... um, Ghost from Game Of Thrones) and attempted to lay waste to as many cities as possible before the military could stop you. Plot details are under wraps, but it's assumed Johnson would play the hero going up against these creatures, and not one of the creatures themselves - though how cool would that be? Anyway, Johnson has a Lot on his plate so production is not expected »
Dwayne Johnson doesn't show any signs of slowing down and is now entering the gaming world again. He will be, hopefully, making the adaptation of Rampage. If you don't remember, that's an arcade game from the 80's that lived through the early 2000's! Come check out the details!
Deadline is reporting the movie already has a script by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop), Beau Flynn (San Andreas) and Johnson are producing with Dany Garcia and John Rickard. The film is expected to start filming next summer (2016) shortly after Dwayne Johnson finishes filming Fast and Furious 8.
So far things are being kept quiet, but we can tell you about the game since we loved it! The game focuses on 3 people that get mutated into monsters. A warewolf, a gorilla, and »

Way back in 2011, news arrived that "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Final Destination" producer John Rickard set up an adaptation of quarter-eating arcade game "Rampage" at New Line. And that was the last anybody heard about it, because really, who is asking for a "Rampage" movie? Well, apparently Hollywood is, because they've just got a big star attached. Dwayne Johnson is now flexing his muscles for the project, with the live-action movie looking to shoot next summer. Ryan Engle ("Non-Stop") is writing the script, and while it's not certain how the game will be turned into a narrative, you may have forgotten that in the video game, the gorilla, lizard, and werewolf are actually the result of an experiment gone wrong on three humans, George, Lizzie, and Ralph.

As I write this, my roommate is sitting on our couch playing Grand Theft Auto V, picking out which vehicles and guns to buy so he can continue wreaking havoc on the community of San Andreas. Speaking of San Andreas, that's the name of the most recent film Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made, and speaking of Johnson and video games, the actor is set to star in an adaptation of a popular one, though it is of the 1980s arcade-style variety and not the GTA V home console variety. According to Deadline, Johnson and his San Andreas producer Beau Flynn are teaming up again for an adaptation of Rampage (play it online right here if you like), an arcade game released back in 1986, when video games were confined to a big machine and a few buttons in a place called the arcade and you had to stand up to play them, »

Dwayne Johnson is reuniting with his San Andreas producer Beau Flynn for an adaptation of the popular 1980s video game classic Rampage. The original game, created by Midway, featured three giant monsters, a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf, who cause destruction and chaos in major cities around North America, while trying to fend off military forces. While plot details are being kept under wraps, The Rock will play a man who tries to stop these destructive monsters.
Ryan Engle (Non-Stop) wrote the screenplay, with New Line currently seeking directors, and production slated to begin in the summer of 2016. The plan is for Dwayne Johnson to shoot this project after he wraps on Fast & Furious 8, which is slated for release on April 14, 2017. The project will mark the fourth collaboration between Dwayne Johnson and Beau Flynn, following Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, last year's Hercules and San Andreas, which has »
In 1986, rather than play humans trying to stop a mutated threat to civilization, gamers got to be the monsters wreaking havoc on major cities in the Midway arcade game Rampage. A live action film adaptation of Rampage is now in development at New Line, with Dwayne Johnson set to star.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnson is lined up to star in the live action Rampage film, which is currently in development at New Line. Ryan Engle (Non-Stop) is penning the script and no director is attached at this time. New Line is looking to start rolling cameras on the project next summer. Johnson's specific role is not yet known, but it's believed that he will play someone attempting to stop the mutated monsters before they smash and eat everything in their path.
Although the majority of the plot details are unknown, it's expected that the film will follow the »

First it was The Rock vs. an Earthquake, now The Rock will battle giant animal creatures. Are you not entertained?? It’s being reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to re-team with New Line and producer Beau Flynn for a movie based on the 80s Midway Arcade Game Rampage (the rights of which are owned by New Line’s sister company Warner Bros.) The live action film is tentatively slated for a 2016 summer production start. According to Deadline, plot details are still being kept under wraps, but the Rampage game involves three giant monsters (a gorilla, a lizard, and a wolf), that terrorize major cities all over North America. Presumably, Johnson will put a stop to all of that. Ryan Engle (Non-Stop) will pen the script, although a director has yet to be attached. Johnson is currently starring in the frothy and fun HBO series Ballers, and the »

Dwayne Johnson has battled monsters and he has battled massive devastation and now he will battle both simultaneously! The man known as "Franchise Viagra" will re-team with his San Andreas producer and New Line Cinema to produce a big screen adaptation of the classic arcade game Rampage.

After shaking down most of California with giant earthquakes, then drenching the place with a tsunami in successful disasterthon San Andreas, it looks like Dwayne Johnson and the studio/producers behind that film are going to set giant monsters on America next, working up an adaptation of classic Midway Arcade title Rampage. Those of a certain age will remember feeding coins into the arcade cabinet (and later playing at home) to control three giant monsters: George (a not-Kong giant gorilla), Lizzie (a certainly not Godzilla huge lizard) and Ralph (a definitely something other than The Wolfman massive werewolf), who were normal humans until they were the subject of experiments by the nefarious Scumlabs and turned into their monstrous forms. The game largely involved you punching buildings to rubble, swatting at tanks and helicopters and noshing on random humans. Non-Stop co-writer Ryan Engle has come up with a way to turn »
Forget blockbusters – Hollywood is doubling down on its big studio Rockbusters. Today brings news that, in the aftermath of high box office receipts for his mighty earthquake pic San Andreas, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is again teaming with New Line and producer Beau Flynn for a live-action Rampage adaptation.
The pic, the plot for which is being kept under wraps, takes inspiration from the ’80s Midway Arcade Treasures video game that has lived on throughout the years on a variety of platforms.
That game involved three towering monsters – a King Kong-esque gorilla, a Godzilla-sized lizard and a giant werewolf – on a path of destruction across the United States. Johnson, it seems, is about to put himself squarely in their path. Seeing as Mother Nature wasn’t a big-enough threat to truly perturb a being of The Rock’s incredible badassery, perhaps it makes sense that genetically mutated monsters are the next step. »

According to Deadline, Johnson will reteam with San Andreas producer Beau Flynn for the action film, set to start production next summer. The script will come from Ryan Engle, who wrote the Liam Neeson airborne thriller Non-Stop. The project is still seeking a director.

New Line is bringing a live-action adaptation of popular '80s video game Rampage to the big screen with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.

Based on the Midway Arcade Game, the script is being written by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop). There's no director attached at this point.

Filming is slated to begin next Summer for a 2017 release. Johnson would shoot the film after he reprises his role of Hobbs in "Fast and Furious 8".

Ever since 2008's Taken, we haven't seen Oskar Schindler in the same light. Liam Neeson was falling from grace until that smash hit and ever since has been a staple in modern action films including three collaborations with Jaun Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop), most recently the aptly titled Run All Night. Starting out, it seems all too familar. Neeson plays a father figure with a troubled past. He looks like he'll kill you just as fast as he may invite you to the bar for drinks. Considering his most recent work, it seems he's stuck in an infinite loop of playing badass 60-year olds, but he provides some of his best work of recent memory here, and predispositions soon fade. That's not to say this isn't a typecast -- it is -- but he does completely own his role and add depth to this story about fathers protecting what's theirs and owning up to their faults, »
