Over a series of Tweets , infamous movie-maker Uwe Boll has threatened legal action against Warner Bros if they don’t rename their upcoming Dwayne Johnson starrer “Rampage”.
Boll believes that the studio has no right to release a movie with the same name as his 2009 movie.
Boll’s “Rampage”, and it’s sequels, share a much different storyline to the April release. The filmmaker, whose other credits include “BloodRayne” and “Alone in the Dark”, believes audiences will be disappointed if they head along to the Dwayne Johnson movie, expecting it to be related to the Boll movies, and getting something different and disparate.
Boll’s tweets & a statement that appeared on his website appear below.
We are living now in a world where Independent Movies are dead and the big players only are making all the money. That they then use developed brands and ideas from established series such as my Rampage films in order to make even more money is unfair but typical. The new RAMPAGE movie will shrink my brand and my revenues I can make in the future with my RAMPAGE movies. It also confuses the audience! I want that WARNERS change the title, especially because the new movie has nothing to do with a RAMPAGE and looks more like Jumanji 2 and is one of those typical feelgood, popcorn bullshit movies that the studios use to brainwash America even more! All these kind of movies including Transformers, Avengers are helping the military industrial complex in America to win and have retards like Trump be American President who would say that the earth is flat as soon they think they can benefit from this!
Fuck this new fake Rampage movie. Uwe Boll is going to sue Warner Bros. asshole. Totally serious. Will update soon.

Audience sit down, buy a ticket. They excited to see Bill Williamson go gonzo- movie title fade in, RAMPAGE- suddenly a gorilla takes a dump, an alligator & wolf fight over who gets to sniff it, & The Rock's smell-the-fart acting. Then nobody see my RAMPAGE movies again. #UweBoll
