Video game adaptation

Every day I get a bit older, and every time something like this happens, that fact really sinks in. In less than a year, Scott Cawthon's Five Night's at Freddy's videogame series (which follows a night security guard watching...
As Deadline reports that Jay Basu will write the screenplay for Sony Pictures feature film adaptation of the hugely popular Metal Gear Solid video game, it seems the pieces are finally falling into place.  We've hea...
Videogames have had a rough time in cinema. Since videogames are such an interactive medium, a film adaptation always misses out on the intimacy of player involvement or the videogame's story struggles to find an identity in ...
The Warner Bros./Village Roadshow adaptation of Ernie Cline's sci-fi novel Ready Player One just got a huge boost in credibility and visibility. Legendary director Steven Spielberg has signed on to helm the video-game fueled ...


Remember when it was announced that they were making a full movie based off of that short film about arcade sprites across the New York skyline? Remember when it was also announced that Adam Sandler was starring in the proje...
Starring the John Tucker Must Die kid, the AllState guy, and Rob Riggle as the best f**king Frank West possible, Dead Rising: Watchtower looks surprisingly good. With this trailer elaborating on the bits we got from the firs...
If there's one thing The LEGO Movie has proven to audiences and, most importantly, producers, is that there's a good movie hidden inside every property, including toys.  Which is why I'm not really sure how to react when...
Marion Cotillard is set to join Michael Fassbender in the Assassin's Creed movie, according to a Deadline exclusive. We've heard talks and rumours about a live-action adaptation of the best-selling Ubisoft franchise for years...
For a film based off the cheesy Dead Rising videogames going straight to Sony's Crackle streaming service, this doesn't look that bad. Doesn't have enough Frank West covering wars though. Dead Rising: Watchtower is available March 27th. 
As we've covered here before, Fox has been working on an Assassin's Creed film for some time now. Every time we've gotten a release date for it, it either gets pushed back or swept under the rug. I don't want to say that it's...
It may have been in a sticky development the last few years (with Sam Raimi leaving the project, Duncan Jones signing on as the new director, and going through a few rewrites), a movie based off one of the biggest videogames ...
Remember when I told you all that a movie based on the Dead Rising videogame series was in the works for Sony's Crackle digital service? Yeah, I wasn't thrilled about the concept either, but proving movies work in mysterious ...
You weren't excited for it, but some folks out there were. The folks behind the Angry Birds movie set up a challenge to reveal the cast once 1 billion birds were slung in the game. That happened, and now you too can read...
Never, ever underestimate Hollywood's love of a brand. They'll take even the most plotless thing in the world and make a movie out of it. Well, now they've found an even more plotless thing. Tetris is getting a movie. No...
I'm pretty sure once the Shadow of the Colossus movie is made we'll be repeating that subheader (which is a quote from the game) back at the filmmakers because despite being awesome I fear they will ruin it. Wait, you fo...
Wait, did we ever get around to telling you all there's a film based on the almost popular Dead Rising videogames in the works? You think we're ready for the zombie parade again? If there's any good zombie idea, it's how Dead...
I'm pretty sure everyone who grew up in the 90s either had or knew someone who had the James Bond videogame GoldenEye 007. I literally have two N64 copies of this game. It's probably one of the most popular games of the Nint...
The Hitman games make for some pretty easy action fodder, and the movie that released in 2007 based on them wasn't all that bad. It didn't really take off though, so why not reboot! The new Hitman film, Hitman: Agen...
The Last of Us was a fascinating movie with a not-very-good game attached to it. The narrative and cutscenes told a compelling story that were undermined at every minute by stupid decisions forced onto the narrative by i...
Pixels, a full fledged film adapted from Patrick Jean's short film of the same name, is about a group of folks who are asked to fight an invasion of videogame characters when they mistake arcade machines as an act of war. Dir...
Next up in the long line of turning random properties into movies because sometimes they make money, is Space Invaders. Back when Warner Bros first acquired the rights for a movie adaptation of the Taito arcade game, they tri...
The Resident Evil series has been a huge moneymaker. Although the original videogame series has been on a decline the last few years (with their parent company Capcom currently under financial duress), the films have made Son...
