The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Joe Manganiello and Marley Shelton are in negotiations to join the cast of New Line’s video game film Rampage.
Like the video game itself, the film will feature three creatures – a monstrously transformed gorilla, a wolf and a crocodile – who wreak havoc on North American cities and landmarks. If they agree to join the film, Manganiello will be playing the role of a leader of a private military group while Shelton will playing the role of a scientist and astronaut.
Rampage is being directed by Brad Peyton and also has Beau Flynn attached to produce. Others attached to produce are John Rickard, Hiram Garcia, with Marcus Viscidi, Jeff Fierson and Dany Garcia serving as executive producers. Manganiello and Shelton could join a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris.
Rampage is scheduled for cinematic release on the 20th April 2018.
