New Line Cinema to Bring Midway Video Game RAMPAGE to the Big Screen

New Line Cinema is reportedly developing a big-screen adaptation of Midway Games‘ classic arcade game Rampage. The game revolves around a trio of mild-mannered humans who are mutated into a giant Godzilla-like lizard, a werewolf and a gorilla, respectively, and fight the military while destroying buildings.

THR reports that the project is being produced by John Rickard (Jack the Giant Killer, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and New Line is aiming for a tone similar to Ghostbusters and Independence Day.  The studio and producer are currently meeting with writers to pen the adaptation of the video game.

No production or release dates have been announced for Rampage.
