Jeffery Dean Morgan, who is known for his role in AMC television series The Walking Dead, has joined Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the highly anticipated live-adaptation of the video game, Rampage.
The movie which is slated for April 20, 2018, also stars a stellar cast like Malin Åkerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, and Moonlight Oscar nominee Naomie Harris.
The official synopsis for the movie hasn’t been released yet, but the 1980s arcade games upon which Rampage is based revolve around a giant lizard, gorilla, and werewolf that wreak havoc on cities around the world.
Deadline, which first reported Morgan’s casting, indicates he’s tackling the supporting role of Agent Russell, “who works for a covert government division called OGA and rolls with serious swagger and attitude.”
Johnson, also set to executive-produce the project, teams once again with New Line, producer Beau Flynn, and filmmaker Brad Peyton on Rampage after working together on the earthquake blockbuster San Andreas and the adventure fantasy Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
