Dwayne Johnson continues to be the busiest man in Hollywood, as his next project is already in production. Hiram Garcia, the actor’s producing partner at Seven Bucks Productions, took to Twitter this morning to announce that Rampage has begun filming.
Garcia posted a photo featuring Malin Akerman, who plays the film’s villain, along with Jake Lacy, who plays her character’s brother, with the caption: “Principal photography kicks off today on our #Rampage movie. @MalinAkerman & #JakeLacy bringin’ the thunder!” You can check it out below.

San Andreas director Brad Peyton is at the helm, with a cast that also includes Naomie Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hil, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Details on the plot are still under wraps, but it is said that the film will feature a story similar to the gaming experience players were offered in the Rampage arcade game.
In the classic 1986 game, players would control giant monsters — an ape, a wolf and a lizard — taking them around the United States as they destroyed key landmarks while trying to survive an onslaught from military forces.
Rampage hits theaters on April 20, 2018.

Even some non-theatrical films get in on the fun, like Netflix’s War Machine starring Brad Pitt.
