Variety reports Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games) and Matt Gerald (Daredevil) have joined Dwayne Johnson in the cast of the video game adaptation of Rampage.
The original arcade game released in 1986 took players across the United States as they destroyed key landmarks while trying to survive an onslaught from military forces as they controlled a giant ape, a giant wolf, or a giant lizard.
An official synopsis has yet to be released but the film will feature a plot similar to the original gaming experience.
Both Quaid and Gerald have been cast in unknown roles but they join Johnson as the animal-loving hero who is the world’s only hope.
Rampage will be directed by Brad Peyton with Beau Flynn producing — the duo behind San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mystery Island. John Rickard will produce the film under the Wrigley Pictures Banner with Hiriam Garcia set to produce under Seven Bucks Productions. Peyton will also produce under ASAP Entertainment with Wendy Jacobson of FlynnPictureCo co-producing.
Johnson is serving as executive producer on the film along with Dany Garcia, Marcus Viscidi, and Jeff Fierson.
The film also stars Naomi Harris, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hill and P.J. Byrne.
Rampage is currently slated to hit theaters April 20, 2018.
