Hollywood star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is reportedly set to reunite with 'San Andreas' director Brad Peyton on new movie 'Rampage'

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is to reunite with 'San Andreas' director Brad Peyton on a new movie based on the videogame 'Rampage'.

The action movie - which also stars Alexandra Daddario - is among the surprise hits of the year and according to Deadline, the duo are set to collaborate once more having also worked together on the 2012 hit 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island'.

Brad, 37, will direct and Dwayne will take on the leading role in the movie based on the 1986 videogame, which allowed players to control one of three monsters, who destroyed buildings and generally created havoc.

Meanwhile, Dwayne recently credited his "solid" home life for helping him make a successful transition from being a wrestler to an actor.

The 'San Andreas' star paid tribute to long-time girlfriend Lauren Hashian and his teenage daughter Simone, explaining: "When I first came into acting, I had great opportunities to make a decent movie. I had a run there in 2005, '06, '07 - for a long time it was 'Oh, he's the best thing in the movie that's not that good.'

"I started questioning: Did I make the right choice? Should I have stayed in wrestling a bit longer? And then budgets became lower and lower and the pay kinda stayed the same and there wasn't a lot of growth."

When a space-born pathogen starts turning random animals dangerous across the USA, primatologist Davis (Johnson) is on the case. Splendidly silly monster movie which swerves between knowing humour, endearing stupidity and an over-long CGI-heavy finale; Morgan’s turn as a gung-ho Homeland Security agent is a hoot.
