    New Line Cinema have today announced that its to make a film based of the incredibly brilliant video game...Gears of War!

    Yes yet another movie based on a game, will this one suck balls? Will this one actually get finished or will it join the many others in development hell? We'll wait and see. Who's betting Vin Diesel or THE ROCK HAAAARRRDCORRE will be in the lead?

    Don't think its happening right now, there was talk of John Woo having bought the rights but that was April 2004, perhaps when MP3 comes out and does well we might here of another attempt.

    The Metroid movie thing was an April fools joke on IGN.

    That reminds me, good news is that Castlevania movie is coming out on 2009. Bad news is that the director is Paul Anderson... Let's just hope he doesn't screw up as bad as Resident Evil. I don't even want to think about Blood Rayne...

    Blood Rayne was Uwe Boll.

    I like the resident evil series, they are pretty fun to watch...Im glad its not strictly like the game, there's no "master of lock picking" stuff

    I actually enjoyed House of the Dead 2, its a b-movie zombie flick but at least its honest!

    Oh and Toilet Bowl is working on Alone in the Dark 2.

    No their joke was that Uwe Boll was directing it, John Woo thing was true kinda, his film company did have the rights but it ran out 2006.

    It will just be like the doom movie TERRIBLE!!!! The one I'm looking forward to is the spy hunter game. The original arcade game of this all you did was drive and blow cars up, then occationally go down a ramp and change into a boat to blow more things up. So the script for this is totally open as it had no story line.
