Wow. First Uncharted, now inFamous? Sony must love being awesome. I could see inFamous being a big hit if it is being produced by the same producers who did the new Hulk and Iron Man movies.

Don't forget about Shadow of the Colossus - Gullermo Del Toro is considering doing that after The Hobbit.

I think Sony has the right idea - if anyone they can produce the first successful game-film adaptation, its gotta be them.

Games like WoW, GeoW, and Halo on the other hand have weak cinematic qualities. If it wasn't for the fact that they sold millions they would never be considered for adapatations. I'm sure any week now we'll COD will get a green light, and people will start praising that game as well "yeah COD would make an excellent movie" NOT.

Sheldon Turner is also the writer for X-Men Origins: Magneto. So I guess we'll see if he's up for the job when that releases in 2011.

Sony really need to stop making good games into films.

Oh joy! Sounds like such a good choice for Sony to choose Sheldon Turner to pen the script for a movie based on one of the best games of 2009!

Hell yeah!

And look at that, he even wrote the modern version of The Longest Yard. Man.

Everything about this project just sounds so promising already :D

I'm sure everyone on N4g know more about producing and making movies that Sony.

I think the games to movies thing is getting out of hand nowadays. Make movies with story-oriented games like Bioshock and MGS. That's ok.

But making a movie on Infamous seems like some kind of forced publicity

BoX Office Smash
Unlike Gears which will be a Bigger Flop than Hudson Hawk or Waterworld

I agree mumts. Unlike gears of bore Uncharted and inFAMOUS actually have a well thought out story. Mindless cursing and gore won't attract anyone else but delusional 12 yr old xboxlive infants.

Hey waterworld was AWESOME man.. i loved that movie.

Ninver3190d ago

Sony is definately on the ball with these AAA game based movies. If done properly Uncharted and inFAMOUS could very well own the theaters.

I hope you are joking...although looking at your bubble count, probably not.
