THE MOVIE "Rampage"

THE DEAL The star of "San Andreas" will take the lead role in a film based on the 1980s-era arcade game by Midway, according to Deadline.com. Though the plot is under wraps, the game itself focused on a gorilla, a lizard and a wolf that attack various major cities. Johnson, presumably, will be on hand to stop them. "Rampage," which is scheduled to begin filming next summer, would be at least the second new action film about vintage arcade games, following next month's "Pixels."
