‘San Andreas’ Helmer Reteams with Dwayne Johnson on ‘Rampage’

Brad Peyton has come on to direct New Line’s adaptation of the classic video game “Rampage,” starring Dwayne Johnson.

Beau Flynn, who also produced “San Andreas” with Peyton and Johnson, is on board to produce.

Ryan Engle is penning the script, with plot details being kept under wraps. In the video game, players were tasked with stopping a giant gorilla, a lizard and a wolf as they wreak havoc across America.

Flynn will produce via his FlynnPictureCo. banner. John Rickard will also produce via his Rickard Pictures. Richard Brener, Michael Disco and Sam Brown will oversee for New Line.

Production is likely to start sometime in the summer of 2016 as Johnson’s schedule is filled until the next spring. Johnson is currently filming the action comedy “Central Intelligence” alongside Kevin Hart; New Line will release that film next summer.

“San Andreas” was a huge hit for New Line, bringing in $460 million at the global box office.

CAA reps Peyton along with Jodi Peikoff and Michael Mahan at Peikoff Mahan.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
