They'll make it a 12 rated film.
The only way a God of War film will get 0.0001% love is if it is an 18. Even that will be difficult. But I won't be surprised if they roll on a 12A, kid friendly, no blood, sh*t GoW film.

A Metal Gear Solid film I can understand, but not GoW, Kratos is too bad ass for TV. Dude can only be controlled by my controller.

When I saw the image posted with the article, it looked like Bruce Willis was playing Kratos.

edit: and yes, literally a second later, I realized it was Patrick Stewart.

Patrick Stewart as Kratos?

It's gotta be either him or Morgan Freeman.

TrendyGamers2006d ago

Morgan Freeman can be the body double.

I wouldnt mind tc carson as kratos.. After all kratos is grey so thats just make up.. He already does his voice so rage and emotion wouldnt be a problem. He would only have to buff up get ripped and let the epicness begin

While Stewart is awesome...have you ever seen him with his shirt off?

Ben Kingsly as Kratos. Believe.

Now that............that I would watch.

I don't know if he could dial down the manlyness enough to pull Kratos off. I mean Kratos is savage, but lets face it, he's no Chuck.

You mean the naive creationist or should I just say creationist. He is an insult to humanity and furthermore, he knows it.

Oh God. I was just about to state some examples of who's done bad game to movie translation and besides Uwe Boll - I think they were *ALL* made by Sony!

Resident Evil movies could be worse, could be like the games.


Godmars2902006d ago

Actually I think since the first movie they've been influencing the direction and some elements in games.

They're feeding off each other.

If the Resident Evil movie franchise practically completely played out the first move the way the first game plays out ...

It would have been AMAZING!!!!

The first 4 RE games were fantastic, and 5 wasn't as bad as people want to make it out to be.

The movies are big piles of doo doo.
