Video Games & Hollywood or Keep Your Hands Off Our Franchises!

Gamer Euphoria staff member ob writes:

''Video games being turned into movies is nothing new and it’s been happening from as early as the mid-80s starting with Super Mario Bros. which saw Bob Hoskins taking on the role of everyone’s favourite plumber, Mario. With news coming from Deadline that Dreamworks is in final talks to purchase the movie rights to the Need for Speed franchise, I think it’s time that Hollywood learns from their past mistakes and stops throwing good money after bad.''
