Renowned primarily for his work in The Walking Dead, we can now see Jeffrey Dean Morgan on the big screen in Brad Peyton’s Rampage – and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the man himself.
Morgan explained to us all of the factors that enticed him into signing up to this project, though admits it was the most challenging experience in his career yet, having to work with green screen technology. He goes on to praise director Peyton, saying he feels putting a film together of this magnitude is an undervalued craft.
He then goes on to discuss his own affinity with animals, and in particular his donkey who thinks he’s a dog, while talks about the films heart, which derives from this sacred bond humanity shares with our furry friends.
Watch the full interview below…
Global icon Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure “Rampage,” directed by Brad Peyton. Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with discredited geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Rampage is out in cinemas now.
