The Hilarious List Of Video Game Movies Hollywood is Trying To Make
There was a period of time a while back when it felt as though movies based on video games were being announced every second day, to the point where I simply stopped caring and openly wondered whether a single one would actually make it to cinemas. As an experiment, Kotaku Australia publisher Danny Allen decided to collate a list of all the 'video game movies' currently in production. It is insane. Brace yourself. This is a long list.
But first, a disclaimer. Danny informs me that this list was produced based on an exhaustive search of every movie related rumour he could possibly find. Some could be legit, some could be based on complete hearsay. Some are super early in production, some are close to release.
Me, I just find some of the games on this list hilarious. A Gran Turismo movie? Really?
Here it is, in no particular order!
Metal Gear Solid Movie (Sony / Colombia)
Care Factor? Yeah, I could get behind this, although story is probably the weakest part of the MGS series.
Chances Of Getting Made? This has been rumored forever. I don't think it'll ever see the light of day.
Dead Island [Lions Gate]
Care Factor? Only if it delivers on that trailer that turned out to be empty fluff.
Chances Of Getting Made? Nope. No chance.
RollerCoaster Tycoon (Sony Pictures)
Care Factor? Hahahahahahahaha! Oh man, this list is crazy.
Chances Of Getting Made? No way. Just no way.
Devil May Cry (Sony Screen Gems)
Care Factor? If they go all out and make this camp as hell — count me in.
Chances Of Getting Made? Don't think it'll ever get made.
