    This has potential to be something good... unlike other video game franchises! I'll believe it when I see it but for now it's on the right track....[​IMG]

    ...And an advanced apology to the moderators since I posted this in both this forum and the video game forum as well, I couldn't decide where it would reach more people who would be interested in this.:b

    I ain't holding my breath. I'd love to see a Metroid movie though. The original game for the Nintendo is still one of my all-time favs. The twist ending revealing Samus to be a woman was also memorable.

    So does this mean we'll also be getting a Kid Icarus movie? [​IMG]

    This could be the breaker, in the sense that it may be a video game movie that does not suck. However, this game has only one character, Samus. You run around a planet long since devoid of intelligent life (aside from the boss enemies). This sounds about as good as making a game based on Doom (who's movie rights have also been optioned). Metroid has always been a single player exploration game. It'll be interesting to see how they write this movie.
