Deadline is reporting that Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, will star in a live-action feature film based on classic arcade game Rampage. First released in 1986, Rampage is the original Wreck-It Ralph, in which players destroy apartment buildings and highrises as George (the giant gorilla), Lizzie (the giant lizard / dinosaur) and Ralph (the giant werewolf[?!]).
In recent years, there seems to have been an uptick in films that feature werewolves, but don’t have them front and center.
In May I posted about Michael Butts’ fundraising efforts for his short film “I’m a Werewolf, but that’s OK!”. Today I’m happy to share with you a short Q&A with Michael, as well as some news about the film’s length (it’s getting longer) and title (it’s changing).
My current list of podcast subscriptions is so long (“all the great shows“) that even with a 2-hour commute and a 45-minute workout, I end each day with a lengthy queue. Suffice it to say I’m picky about adding new shows, but Aaron Mahnke‘s Lore Podcast made the list in less than 20 minutes.

Among all the films I blow my fanboy trumpet for on this site, 2012’s The Cabin in the Woods is my favourite. It’s smart, scary, really funny, and it ends with a smash cut to credits that’s guaranteed to make me head-bang every time. And of course, it’s got that excellently designed, practically achieved werewolf.
After last year’s unsuccessful but encouraging campaign, Tales of the Wolfman has returned to Kickstarter with a bigger, badder, more adorable campaign that’s jam-packed with even monsters and fairytale creatures.
