*New Line is turning ’80s video game “Rampage” into a live-action film with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.

The project reunites Johnson, New Line and producer Beau Flynn, who recently teamed for the hit disaster pic “San Andreas.”

Given the success of “San Andreas” and its more than $400 million worldwide box-office haul, New Line is eager to get Rampage off the ground and is eyeing a 2016 summer production start, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the Midway Arcade Game, the script is being written by Ryan Engle (“Non-Stop”). So far, no director is attached to the project.

In addition to “San Andreas,” Johnson starred in the mammoth hit “Furious Seven” and on Sunday (June 21) began his run on HBO’s “Ballers.”
