The thing I'm most loking forward to with the game is the story. So a movie could be very intresting.

No Doom/RE/DoA sort of thing please...

He would be good for the roll of Kane, just give him long hair. (He's in Shoot 'Em Up, coming Sept. 7th). Who agrees?

Most of you would probably disagree on this one.. but I prefer game movies to be CG, it's better than real life actors IMO and they'd probably stay true to the game's story.

I focking agree with you right there.
CG is the best choice because everything looks exactly the same, hence you keep the atmosphere, the environment, the ambiance, etc.
And the most important, you keep all the voices!

Imagine Hitman a CG movie.
47 would look exactly like focking 47.
And he would sound exactly like ... yeah right ... focking 47.

And CG movies are powerful and detailed enough to please us adults to watch it as real movies. We only care about the content anyway.
We want lots of dead people, fock and shytes throughout the entire movie, babes with long legs and a well tought story with an original ending.
(k that last part is quiet hard to do).

But at least it looks like the Hitman movie has some really great camera angles and lighting effects.

What about this one as Lynch?

Yay! Jeron agrees with me! =D

Anyway, why are they buying movie rights already? I mean, yeah, the game is probably going to be popular but why don't they wait until the game actually gets released? Isn't that more fool-proof?

Because you'd have to be Uwe Boll to fock this one up

I mean, yeah, the game is probably going to be popularBased from what I'm seeing, that's not the case for the future of this game.

Personally, the Hitman movie alone would of been justified if they hired David Bateson considering it's a rare case for the voice of the character to look almost like the character.

This on the other hand...damn, LG really needs to find the cash to make this into an CGI because the Hitman movie seems to look more mediocre at best.
