Could CRISPR create monster animals? STAT reviews 'Rampage'

We here at STAT cover CRISPR1 a lot. But it’s not every day we get to cover Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The Rock and the genome-editing technology meet in a new movie, “Rampage2,” coming out Friday. Through a freak accident, a gorilla, a wolf, and a crocodile ingest some CRISPR complexes. The animals — whose genomes become edited to make them stronger, bigger, faster, and more aggressive — soon wreak havoc on the city of Chicago.


I like The Rock. What can I say. He's not a Democrat, is he?
