Rampage… that isn’t a game I’ve heard about in a long time. But, the series is coming back in a big way, though not in a way that you would expect. There is a Rampage movie in the works, and the leading role will be going to Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson spoke at length with USA Today about the upcoming movie. Here’s more about his role in the Rampage movie and its plot:

The former pro wrestler and Fast and Furious regular stars as Davis Okoye, a guy who gets along with animals way better than people. “When animals like you, they lick you. When they don’t like you, they eat you. That’s his philosophy, which has gotten him far in life,” says Johnson.

Davis notices George getting more sizable and consequently more uncontrollable, and as he tries to help, it soon becomes clear the gorilla’s not the only beast affected: By the end of the movie, Davis is trying to keep George, a 30-foot wolf named Ralph, and Lizzie, a crocodile the size of a football field, from wrecking Chicago while also attempting to save his friend.

There’s more about the other characters of Rampage:

Naomie Harris co-stars as genetic scientist Dr. Kate Caldwell, who teams with Davis; Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays a government agent named Harvey Russell tracking the rampaging monsters; and as villainess Claire Wyden, Malin Akerman “not only can carry the screen but can also be captivating and really believable in terms of her malevolent nature,” says Johnson.

Finally, a key photo of Johnson and Harris:
