Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal to Rewrite Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Rampage’ (EXCLUSIVE)

With “Colony” creating a lot of buzz, Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal are now looking to team up on the big screen.

The “Colony” executive producers have been tapped to rewrite New Line’s adaptation of “Rampage,” the popular arcade video game, with Dwayne Johnson on board to star.

“San Andreas” helmer Brad Peyton is directing with Beau Flynn producing. This marks a “San Andreas” reteaming between the three and Cuse, who wrote the big-budget disaster pic that went on to make $474 million worldwide.

Ryan Engle penned a previous draft. Plot details are 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 Wrigley Pictures. Johnson will produce along with his producing partner Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner.

Jeff Fierson will exec produce. Richard Brener, Michael Disco and Sam Brown will oversee for New Line.

Johnson recently ran through his production schedule on Instagram and said production is likely to start at the end of summer depending on how “Baywatch” and “Furious 8” schedules pan out. He is currently shooting the second season of “Ballers” for HBO.

Cuse and Condal first worked together on NBC pilot “The Sixth Gun.” Though the pilot wasn’t ever picked up, Cuse enjoyed developing the show so much that he decided to team up with Condal again on “Colony,” which is gaining steady traction.

Cuse mainly sticks to TV, where he is currently running “Colony,” “Bates Motel” and “The Strain.” Condal is also developing “The Infinite Horizon” with Greg Berlanti and “Ocean” at WB. Both are repped by WME.
