@BlackFalcon128 UP YOURS! also all you other people that only have bad things to say about this STOP READING ABOUT IT THEN!
Variety says Adrian Askarieh has secured film license for Avalanche Software's free-roaming, adrenaline-filled action adventure.
Hollywood typically picks the gaming industry's premier, name-brand properties to migrate to celluloid, but that isn't always the case. Following on from speculation that Steven Spielberg has been attached to executive produce a movie based on Bungie's Halo franchise, Variety reports that Avalanche Software's Just Cause may also be getting the big-screen treatment.
According to the film-industry trade, Adrian Askarieh has picked up the rights to make a film based on Avalanche's original property, which Eidos Interactive published in 2006. The collaboration wouldn't be a first for Askarieh and Eidos. The Hollywood producer and British publisher also teamed on Fox's Hitman in 2007, and Askarieh is also involved in Lionsgate's Kane & Lynch adaptation, Variety notes.
Variety's repot is light on details, but it does note that Askarieh is attempting to secure $30 million in independent financing for the Just Cause film. "Hitman was a very successful movie for Fox, and I wanted to find a similar project in terms of its genre, international appeal, and ability to do for a price, but do it independently in order to maximize the creative and financial upside that a project like this could generate," Askarieh told Variety.
The original Just Cause received measurably positive reviews when it debuted on the PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Xbox, and PC in 2006. The game followed protagonist Rico Rodriguez, who sowed sedition on the fictitious island nation of San Esperito in a bid to overthrow a corrupt dictator. The game was primarily noted for its outlandish stunts, in which Rodriguez could hitch rides on the wings of in-flight planes, base-jump from cliffs, and parasail from moving vehicles.
Though hit hard by layoffs in late 2008, Avalanche Software remains at work on Just Cause 2, as well as The Hunter. Check out GameSpot's coverage of Just Cause 2 from the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo for more on the game.
Ahh man, Gun Play seems like the same thing.... It should´ve been more kinda tactical with aiming without Ironsights and also physics seems way to unrealistic they should improve a bit more, and it should be like WOOOOOOW!
and in other news walt disney and nintendo have talks of a merger haha unorigionality at its finest.. however i would still see it if its not another street fighter!
Well Just Cause 1 was a good ride when it lasted. Gun Play needed Extreme Polish and Damage Overhaul. Also some of the Game features needed more polish. But hell, it is a really good game.
Sure Just Cause was a fun game, and sure im prly gonna buy the second, but come on... Don't try and turn it into something its not.
I didnt play the first, i wont play the second and iam sure as hell not going to see a movie based off this game. I know there running out of ideas for movies but COMEON.....*plam to face*
this game kinda had aspects of a action movie... but the doesnt mean it will be a good movie when it comes out
The only successful game that was turned into a movie was Resident Evil... I'm not sure about this one
I've got a brilliant idea! Why don't they not make any movies based on videogames and why don't they bugger off and leave our games alone.
MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES yeah I love games.
Standing on a roof of a car which is blazing through a jungle on 200 km/h, while shooting down badguys? He must be a Jedi. Good for a cheap trash movie, imo, nothing i'll go to cinema for, though.
JUST CAUSE!?....i mean that wasnt a bad game or an awesome game but really? he couldve picked something up different like....deus ex....i mean come on!
It seems like every game is getting a move, or reported so. But haven't seen any info on them whatsoever.
this is going to be a fun game I hope it has more missioins even though the older game had lot's of missions but I hope they more variety in settlement missions
Just Cause?! C'mon, thats such a minor game. I mean whats next? A film version of Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddlers Green?! I'm sure his nibs is already preparing Tunnel Rats starring Burt Reynolds for us!
I see many "If this is done right......"s. so i figure I'll be the one to say it. Yeah, if its done right it'd be great. the problem is, it's Hollywood. So long as they're making a movie based of of something (be it book, videogame, or anime) they NEVER do ANYTHING right.
Just Cause was pretty average.. and hitman movie was average... so i only can assume average movie. That's not bad, it will be god compare to Uwe Boll's movie
Hitman had good action but it left out important details in the storyline which really killed the experience
You kow Hollywood is out of ideas these days when there are a growing number of big production houses preparing to make Videogames into movies. @jakethesnake159 = You are right if this movie is done 100% right from the director, actors, then this has the potential to be one of the best action movies ever.
