Fresh off the success of this year's disaster flick 'San Andreas', Deadline Hollywood are reporting that the studio is keen to re-team director/star combo Brad Peyton and Dwayne Johnson for the video game epic, which sees three monsters attack buildings, snatching would-be hostages in the process.

The last game in the 'Rampage' franchise; 'Rampage: Total Destruction' was released on the Nintendo Wii console in 2006. The feature film isn't expected to hit cinemas until 2017.
