Joe Manganiello talks about working on hit movie Rampage

  • Culture

I n Rampage, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Joe Manganiello, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, three mutated beasts ravage their way through the US, destroying everything in their path.

And it’s down to ex-marine-turned primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson) and ex-navy seal, Burke (Manganiello), to bring them down.

We chat to Manganiello about the action-packed flick, which looks like it might just be a box office smash.

You have some familiarity with Rampage the game. Did that factor in your decision to be in the film?
I’m 41, so Rampage was right in the sweet spot of the golden age of arcade games. I grew up playing the game. It had no story; it’s just about giant monsters destroying a city. So, I was curious to read the script and see [director] Brad [Peyton]’s take on the film. I thought Brad and the writers did a great job plotting out a story that was both plausible and a lot of fun.

Tell us about your character, Burke. 
He’s a former Navy Seal who heads up a security team of mercenaries for a pharmaceutical company that has weaponised a new genetic editing technology. When that pathogen has some unexpected consequences, Burke is sent to do some recon, which turns into major damage control.
