‘Dead Space’, ‘Shadow of the Colossus’, and ‘Deus Ex’ Movie Updates

Despite a few successes peppered over the course of several decades, the general consensus is that video game movies are not only a risky proposition for studios, but most of them are lacking in quality. However, we might be in the midst of a changing of the guard, so to speak, as game developers take a more hands-on role in video game movie development (a la Marvel Comics).

So let me get this straight...

For Deus Ex we are getting Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill people who have never really explored outside the horror genre...and I mean the bad horror genre with the cheap scare tatics.

For Dead Space we are getting a crappy writer who let alone has never probably played Dead Space but did the god awful Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li film. Way to go EA, being cheap as always and getting a crappy director/writter...well done.


For Shadow of the Colossus we are....actually wait....Shadow of the bloody Colossus. What the fudge...why are they even doing this in the first place.

Jesus Christ, they make it out like starting it in house is good for the film but as soon as it leaves their control it will be turned into crap and butchered. It's bound to happen, go along with what the developer says to make them happy and then by the time it's finished all the developers input will be tossed outside the window.

Hollywood and these developers are morons...hell NaughtyDog have begged Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to do an Uncharted film numerous times, yeah ND did, not Sony.

I know, right?

It still boggles my mind that for Dead Space, motherfreaking Dead Space, we're getting Justin Marks, the guy who penned Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. I actually sat down and made myself watch that movie in its entirety and I still have the scars from when I tried to claw out my eyes...

Shadow of the Colossus will be the most depressing movie of all-time.
And the most beautiful, if its done well.

Sadly the chance of that happening is borderline impossible, we only ever get video game movie adaptations that exploit the source material not attempt to respect or enhance it.

In this case, it will neither be beautiful nor done well, because it's being made by the writer of the live action Chun Li film, which is a giant turd.

I think zack Snyder be a good candidate to direct Shadow of Colossus. I feel this movie needs the 300 treatment.

I'd love to see a SotC movie! But how are they going to mainstream solitude, Argo and the dual wonder/horror of the Colossi?

Master-H1737d ago

Shadow of the colossus movie would be lame, how are they gon film the hero kill all the colossus one by one ? 2 hours won't cut it if it's gon have a good fighting scene with each one , unless they gon skip most of them which will be lame.
Just use the money to make The Last Guardian come faster Goddamit !

All These Video game movies should be either done by zack Schneider or guillermo del toro :)
