    According to variety, hollywood producers Warren Zide and Craig Perry (of American Pie and Final Destination fame) have gained rights and permission for a Metroid Movie.

    Nothing further more has been announced....but could this be true?

    Not Another Teen Movie...?Hope not...

    None of the hollywood gamemovies have been any good.Just saw Tomb Raider and Resident Evil and they really didn`t change my opinion for better,just the opposite [​IMG]

    Let`s just hope the guys know what they are doing and the movie will be at least average.You never know [​IMG]

    Metroid games have an surtain tension in them. I wonder if they can put that in a movie.

    I can only assume it would be pretty much like Alien

    similar theme

    but they will probably muck it up somewhere
    anyone remember Super Mario Bros Movie....? [​IMG]

    Warren Zide and Craig Perry should leave Metroid the f-ck alone. [​IMG] Nintendo can't need the money that badly and letting a couple of twats mess around with a solid story such as Metroid = disaster IMO. [​IMG]

    The movies they've worked on are pretty average and are comedies.
    I really hope Samus doesn't have a side kick who's played by some "funny" guy like Steve Buscemi, who seems to be in everything, and makes jokes and comments all the time. I think this movie will bomb at the cinemas and will go straight to video.

    Your not alone there...I to remember that discusting movie. Why did they put Bob huskins (dunno if the second name is right) init, and they made LUIGI like the princess peach instead of Mario, how lame.

    I think this movie will rock! just think about it, all the mysteries from Metroid Fusion and prime. With her robotic suit and arma, this movie will be great. I hope they make so they reveal more of Samus Aran's anciant past.

    But the Producers could have been better, I hope they have a good director. Hope Steven speilburg ... [​IMG]

    Btw: does anyone here remember species?

    Species sucked. I don't think we have much to worry about regarding plot mucking (like the Mario Bros. or Double Dragon movies). Listen here: Ziggy first brought this up yesterday, with this information:

    Sounds like they're following the story of the first Metroid. I really hope they don't let it suck.

    My picks for a live action Samus would have been Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Garner, but they're already in recent movies... Of course, as I said in the first thread on this subject, so long as the actress looks like Samus it'll be fine. Based on her model in Prime (which you see at the end if you got over 75% items, or got 100% and unlocked the image gallery 4 to see it in), it shouldn't be that hard.

    For those who think Alien and Metroid had nothing to do with each other, check this out. Once again, the guy at the MDb pulls off something that only a real Metroid Freak could do. He's also requested a cameo in the movie (anything, he says -- even a fed marine who's toast), and since Nintendo had to use his fansite for pictures of some of the boxes of their own products, I think he should at least get something in return. (I'm not joking. WWW.METROID.COM/FUSION and the official Nintendo strategy guide for said game have pics of the previous Metroids -- and look in the bottom right corner of the Super one. Yes, that's the MDb logo -- completely uncredited!)

    On another, semirelated note, welcome back, Saria. Good to see you again.

    All I know is, there's a lot of potential in the storyline, it's just up to the producers to be serious about what should be a fairly tense movie (could almost be classified a "thriller" in done right), that's the way I'd like to see it...

    Although the general lack of character interaction in the game might present some problems for the screenplay writers........
