The upcoming project will reunite the trio of Johnson, Beau Flynn and New Line, who have teamed for "San Andreas" before

The popular video game “Rampage” is making its way to the big screen.

The film adaptation of 80s arcade game will feature Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who will be reuniting  with producer Beau Flynn and New Line Cinema for the project. The trio also teamed for earthquake disaster “San Andreas”.

The details are kept under the wrap. However, the video game itself involves a gorilla, a lizard and a werewolf who wreak havoc on major cities and landmarks across United States. All three were originally humans, made into beasts due to mutation and can climb up the buildings and use punches to reduce them into rubbles.

The script will be written by Ryan Engle, who is the co-screenwriter of 2014 mystery thriller “Non Stop”. Beau Flynn and John Rickard will be taken on board as being the producers of upcoming live action movie. Seven Bucks, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s production company is also involved in the producing capacity. Shooting is expected to start somewhere in the middle of 2016, according to Deadline.

It is turning out to be the most high-profile year for Dwayne Johnson so far since the actor is making headlines with one hit after another. The year started with blockbuster “Furious 7”, earning more than $1.5 million worldwide. The film, which is filled with stunning cars and amazing chasing sequences, is the third highest grossing film of all-time and continues to break record even three months after its release.

Then, the success of disaster pic “San Andreas “gave a boost to his career as a solo actor. The film has grossed more than $400 million so far. Johnson’s hotly anticipated television series “Ballers” has just premiered on HBO and is getting positive feedback from both audience and critics. Dwayne Johnson will be hoping to replicate the success next year as well.
