Eidos has had phenomenal success with movies based on its games (more so than any other video games publisher) and I cant wait.!!!! :cool:

Impressive, I'd have never said so. Now only hope they dont make another **** like most adaptations usually are today. (Edit: LOL, they censored my holy word with a ****!)

How do they plan to do this? The game was only fun because of what it offered... the storyline was terrible, the characters were just stereotypes and the action was B-movie style.

The movie will either be nothing like the game, exactly like the game, or simply bad.

I think I'll stick to the games, thanks because they are the best part of this franchise. How do they plan to convey a free-roaming adventure with over 89 vehicles at your disposal in a movie?

Well, I liked the movie Hitman, so I'll probably like this too!

Mmm, I really don't care. I just loved the first game and hope to love even more the sequel. But the movie could be some serius James Bond-like thing

I smell another typical Hollywood action movie. You have betrayed me for the last time! I will steal cars and sky dive a few times while blowing up every major corporations headquarters and killing as many people as I can in several creative ways. I shall be with multiple women before realizing my partner in this whole mission is the one I really love and am destined to be with. This is everything I'm willing to do to get my revenge, ...even though you live around the corner.
