More and more games appear to have said that a movie is being made about them , but always with no evidence and mostly they get scrapped, but this seems to have some potential.
It seems that nowadays an increasing amount of game producers are announcing movies for their games, but all of them either don’t have anything to show for it, they end up being scrapped, or they never sell enough tickets (Max Payne). Sony did not announce this, but with the information brought forward by a Hollywood reporter, a person named Sheldon Turner is to write the script, he has also been involved with “The longest yard” and “The Texas chainsaw massacre” it leads me to believe that this is for real.
Also, additional information has been released that Avi and Ari Arad will produce the film, they have had their names shown in such movies as “The Incredible Hulk” and “Iron Man”. They are also the people who are producing the Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune film which was announced last month.
When asked about this, Sheldon Turner shared this with the world: “What excited me most about the game was it was the first of which I’ve come across that had a big idea and a character arc,”
He then went on to say: “It is, I believe, the future of gaming. The game, while big and fun, is at its core a love ballad to the underachiever, which is what our hero, Cole McGrath, is.”
No release date has been announced yet, but let’s hope it doesn’t fall in the pit of failure like Max Payne did…
