New Film Starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Filming at Third Rail Studios in Doraville

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has finally come back to Doraville.

A new film starring the former WWE superstar is currently in production at Third Rail Studios in Doraville.

"Rampage," an action/adventure film directed and co-produced by Brad Peyton, is about primatologist Davis Okoye (portrayed by Johnson) who shares an unshakable bond with an extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla named George. A rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms George into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

"Rampage" also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Malin Akerman (TV’s “Billions”), Jake Lacy (TV’s “Girls”), Joe Manganiello (TV’s “True Blood”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s “The Walking Dead”); as well as P.J. Byrne (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Marley Shelton (“Solace”), Breanne Hill (“San Andreas”), Jack Quaid (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), and Matt Gerald (TV’s “Daredevil”).

"Rampage" is a New Line Cinema presentation. It will be distributed by Warner Brothers Pictures, and has an expected release date of April 2018.
