Malin Akerman is set to star in Rampage, New Line’s adaptation of the 80’s arcade game pitting players against three giant monsters mutated from a gorilla, a crocodile, and a wolf. Akerman will play the head of the tech company responsible for creating and unleashing the creatures.
Brad Peyton (San Andreas) is at the helm and Dwayne Johnson stars. Co-stars include Joe Manganiello (”True Blood”), Naomie Harris (Spectre), Marley Shelton (Grindhouse), and Breanne Hill (San Andreas). Cameras roll next month in Atlanta.
Akerman came to fame as sexy costumed crime fighter Silk Spectre II in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. She’s since stuck mostly to romantic comedies up until her current role in the Showtime drama “Billions.”
