The Rock begins production on his latest film (photo), Kofi Kingston reacts to Dash Wilder’s injury

– Production for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new movie “Rampage” started on Tuesday. The movie is being filmed in Chicago and Atlanta. It is based on the hit arcade game. Johnson posted the following about the movie on his Instagram account:

“Day 1. Kicking off production. #RAMPAGE.

In our story we have three animals (gorilla, crocodile and a wolf) who fall victim to evil genetic editing, rapidly changing every strand of their DNA, so they grow, evolve and mutate. Everything becomes amplified.. their size, strength, speed, agility.. and violent aggression. One of the animals infected – a rare Albino gorilla named, George, is my best friend.

George, is played by 6’9 @tallie7487, (Jason Liles, pictured here). Jason has been studying gorillas for months now preparing for this motion capture role. Gorilla movements, body language, and all emotions – joy, pain, sadness, love, aggression, etc. It’s insane when you get around this man and how he’s able to brilliantly embody a gorilla. This is the most fascinating advanced VFX/motion cap process I’ve ever worked with in my career. Incredible learning curve for me.

We have the best mo-cap team in the world (WETA Digital) working on our gigantic RAMPAGE MONSTERS and you’ll get a taste of this new technology in the upcoming WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES as well as James Cameron’s AVATARS. With all the cool advanced technology in our movie, the #1 thing you’re gonna experience when you watch it, is FUN. Because when my best friend, George no happy, then me no happy. And when me no happy.. bad people become our lunch.

#Day1 #KickingOffProduction #RAMPAGE”

– Kofi Kingston, who was written off of WWE TV after being attacked by The Revival last month due to him needing ankle surgery, reacted to Dash Wilder suffering a broken jaw via Twitter. If you recall, The Revival made a t-shirt that had “We broke Kofi’s ankle” on it. Kingston fired back with his own t-shirt in which Scott Dawson and Wilder responded, as seen below:
