I'd be interested in seeing Suikoden done as a movie. Or, maybe I should say I'd be interested in the idea of it done as a movie. I wouldn't automatically be interested if it looked like it was going to be not fun.

Legend of Zelda-I think I'd choose Mike Newell after seeing the last "H arry Potter"...The story itself is a balance of action, magic and romance.

I heard "Animal Crossing" is in development as an animated movie...

I agree with you there TITG. At least the W bros tried something different and new and the games were entertaining and different. I never played the Path of Neo but it looked nice, and the bullet time stuff looked pretty slick. I mean so many games have copied bullet-time now... even god of war (a personal favourite).

Just on a side note... how long do we think it'll be before Kratos gets his own movie?? I hope soon... :D I love that game.

tapehead wrote:Kratos - I don't think it would get optioned - it's all vaguely based on Roman and Greek Mythology, but you might be right.

There have been other flicks with that kinds stuff, and the mythology is different enough IMHO to get away with it. I remember reading something ages ago that was in this light. The creators of the game really put their own flavour into the story. The design is fantastic and it already looks, and is told in a very cinematic way.

Personally I would like to see it as a CG film, the in game stuff looks very distinctive and unless they went down the road of 300 I just don’t know how well it would be formed in reality.

Perhaps you're right, although I don't really see the angle - this is (spoilers for Gods of War II) interesting:

Resident evil... think of how brilliant those films could have been in the right hands...

A resident evil 4 film would have rocked... It's not going to happen though... or at least i hope it doesn't if it holds all the same values as the other ones...

I would like to see a bionic commando film though...

Jet Set Willy.....:lol:

Synopsis: A man's wife tell him he has to clean the house before going to bed. It's an hour and a half action fest with Jet Li and Jackie Chan type stuns through a rather large mansion....maybe Hamtpon Court or something.

Of course...taking a short cut through 'The Banyan Tree' would be the hardest to film....timing wise. Hahah!

No One Lives Forever! It's a '60s-style spy game where you play super-hot super-spy Cate Archer. Lots of cool missions, a funky Moonraker-like vibe throughout, good stuff. They'd need to get someone really hot to play Cate Archer, though.

Couldn't be any worse than the last one was. No, I'm picturing a more serious '60s spy flick, but with a female lead. The kitsch and the in-jokes would be there, but not so damn silly as the AP movies. You know, like The Avengers, but done well. ;)

they could go the safe route & make the people that get run over zombies, or, they could do it like Death Proof should have been.

Super Violent ‘Castlevania’ Animated Series Coming from Producer Adi Shankar
DAVE TRUMBORE wrote:We’ve been hearing rumblings of a Castlevania animated series in the works for a few months now, but didn’t have much to go on other than whispers emanating from torch-lit corridors. Now, however, after seeing producer Adi Shankar make mention of a Castlevania project over social media, our own Steve Weintraub reached out to him to see just what was up his armored sleeve. It seems that Shankar himself will be bringing the Belmont family (back) to life as a “hard-hitting anime” style animated series.

Question: How did the project come about?

Adi Shankar: In a meeting with Kevin Kolde … he’s a really awesome dude. Frederator and Kevin acquired the rights a few years ago.

First of all, the fact that the independent animation studio Frederator is involved with the production such give this project a huge amount of credibility. This is the same team that’s behind smash hits such as Adventure Time and The Fairly OddParents. Secondly, it’s great to hear that they’ve acquired the adaptation rights to the Konami game since that will presumably allow them to put their own spin on the series without too much interference from outside.
What are you basing the story on?

Shankar: Castlevania III.

Wolfpack wrote:Tetris as a movie - sounds tight. Of course, everyone can plainly see that it is a thinly veiled Communist allegory meant to indoctrinate our nation's fine, democratic youth. Think about it- all pieces must fit in to one cohesive whole, or the entire thing eventually collapses on you. Plus, it was designed by a Russian. During the Cold War. Mmmm hmmm!

colonel_lugz wrote:There was actually a documentary filmed about the man that made tetris, and the struggle over who had the right with a backdrop of america vs russia. I only ever saw a long promo of it, I never had digital at the time, think it was on BBC 4. Would love to get a chance to watch it now.

Seppuku just occurred to me that Tetris was invented by a Russian. And it's about little blocks meshing together as one big hole.

Far out man.

〉 In the vein of The Social Network, RatPac is developing the origin story of Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov.
Josh Lyons wrote:Here’s a bit of news that fits perfectly: Brett Ratner and James Packer are developing a biopic based on the life of Alexey Pajitnov, the Russian video game designer and computer engineer who created the iconic video game Tetris in their currently UNTITLED TETRIS PROJECT. Ratner and Packer are producing through their RatPac Entertainment.

In the vein of The Social Network, the story details the career of Pajitnov, who first developed Tetris with the help of Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov in 1984 in the communist-run USSR. Pajitnov was working for a Soviet-funded research and development center in Moscow when he developed the first version of the puzzle game, which began to spread throughout the region–initially exchanged between computer programmers.

As Tetris grew in popularity, being upgraded and adapted for various gaming devices and systems, the rights to the game became the crux of multiple complicated legal battles that spanned across the globe. The battles became so heated, in fact, that they threatened to destabilize relationships between governments. Following a controversial court ruling, Nintendo gained the legal right to sell the game, and as a result, Tetris was sold with every Game Boy console in America. Pajitnov, who moved to America in 1991, did not see a dime for his creation until 1996.

That same year, GameSpot named Pajitnov the fourth most influential computer game developer of all time, while IGN later cited him as “the ultimate video game one-hit wonder.” He went on to develop games for Microsoft.

Between the success of The Social Network and the remarkable–and still untold–true history of Tetris’s origins, there’s certainly a market for a film like this. The game has instant name recognition even with non-game enthusiasts. Not to mention the current geo-political situation between Russia and the West, which makes the story all the more timely.

Tetris isn’t the only iconic game that’s getting an origin story film. Big Beach Films recently announced it was developing The Monopolists, which recounts the scandalous story of the Parker Brothers, who became household names for their board game Monopoly–which they may or may not have stolen.

Producers are currently looking for a screenwriter to adapt the Tetris story for the screen.

Borderlands, it would be accused of being a Road Warrior rip-off.....which would be a little bit true, but the futuristic aspects of the setting like the tech/weaponry and interplanetary travel make it something all its own. in the wrong hands it would be a mess and just another bad movie, but in the right hands it could be Pitch Black crossed with The Raid. i'd have Besson direct
