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.
