Infamous for being one of the most open actors on social media, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been teasing his upcoming film Rampage, a live-action adaption of the video game of the same name. Not only has he previously shared story details surrounding the film via his Instagram, but the actor has also teased the sets and motion capture work going into the project. Taking to social media again over the weekend, the former WWE star officially unveiled the first look at his co-star Naomie Harris and her role in the film.
Friday night. 4am. On set. #RAMPAGE Been shooting all night and I'm jacked up on caffeine but at least I'm getting in trouble with my partner in crime, the lovely and extremely talented, Naomie Harris. Now if I can just break these military flex cuffs, I can do some real hero shit and look cool in front of my leading lady. And by "look cool" I mean get my ass handed to me by these armed military boys. We're makin' a pretty mega monster movie down here. Hard work but a lotta fun. #OnSet #BonnieAndClyde #GiveMeMoreCaffeine #RAMPAGE
It was previously revealed that Harris is set to play a geneticist with a moral streak. With her character shown alongside The Rock’s character, who heads an anti-poaching unit in Rwanda, it’s safe to presume she’ll work with him to rescue his best friend — a rare albino gorilla named George. The film will follow George and two other creatures that become infected from a serum courtesy of some bad folks before going on a “deadly rampage” to destroy the world. This will in turn force The Rock’s character to go on a rampage of his own to seek justice for what was done to George and the others.
While official details regarding Harris’ geneticist role are still unknown, with The Rock calling her his partner in crime, it’s entirely possible she’ll join him in seeking justice for the experimentations performed on George and the other creatures.
Directed by Brad Peyton from a script by Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal, “Rampage” stars Dwayne Johnson, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald and Breanne Hill. The film arrives April 20, 2018.
