Next year, the feature film adaptation of the video game titled Rampage will arrive in theaters with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the lead hero. On the night before Americans celebrate Independence Day, Johnson took to his official Twitter account to express his gratitude to the film’s crew as they continued their hard work on the project.
The image features Johnson as the disheveled hero named Davis Okoye resting beside what appears to be the wreckage of a plane.

Are you excited to see the video game being adapted for the silver screen? Share your thoughts below!
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Directed by Brad Peyton, Rampage stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomi Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hil, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Malin Akerman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Rampage will be released in theaters on April 20, 2018.
