Video game-based movie adaptations seem to be in the season, with Gears of War, Far Cry, World of Warcraft, Max Payne, Metal Gear Solid, American McGee’s Alice, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and many more, such as the legendary Halo movie. The latest to join the line-up is the PC-killer, nanosuit-wearing, graphic card-throttling beast that is…
Crysis! Hit the jump to find out the what and where.
Kotaku abducted and interrogated Cevat Yerli, the CEO of Crytek. The questions asked under threat of death were mostly about the company’s future, the lack of indepedent game developers, Far Cry 2, the Far Cry movie, and towards the end, Yerli revealed plans for a Crysis movie.
Since story was such a strong part of the development of Crysis–something Yerli admitted was not the case for Far Cry, which he said had a B-movie story line, the translation of Crysis to the big screen should be easier.
“A Crysis movie is definitely planned,” said Yerli. “We are in active talks already. I think we will close this topic before the end of this year.”
Considering Crysis didn’t sell as good as free money during the Great Depression (wtf?), we’re not sure how Hollywood will react to such an offer. And when I say Hollywood, I mean the entire world except Uwe Boll. Speaking of whom, Yerli said:
“I think the script changed and improved radically since then, at least I hope it has, since I can’t wait to see the movie. It will be so exciting to watch the Far Cry movie.”
We wish we could share your enthusiasm, Mr. Yerli, but we have been scarred by Uwe Boll.
Oh well, let’s hope this whole Crysis-movie thing works out well, or doesn’t work out at all (no offence, Crytek).
