I'm with Rizno - is it likely anyone else (better) will take up the project?

I'd like to a farcry movie even if it's ridiculous.

You guys seriously need to go out and rent "House of the Dead" or "Alone in the Dark" again. I understand wanting to see a Far Cry movie, even if it isn't exactly an Oscar contender. But there is a line of human decency which shouldn't be crossed. Besides, chances are the movie will be so far from the actual game itself that you will be pissed anyways.

What really gets me is that this guy actually has the gall to blame the lack of success on "dumb audiences". He then goes and slams Tara Reid for her "bad acting" in Alone in the Dark as if that were the only thing wrong with the movie. But as a director, isn't that HIS job to work on her acting?

I'm sorry, but I refuse to give in to this overt exploitation of people who just want to see their games made into movies. He cares NOTHING about the video gamers, it's just a brand new genre that he fully intends to soak dry as much as possible.

Actually, I expect this petition to be just slightly less effective than the request to get UBI to update PB on the official servers.

It doesn't matter who directs or produces it, it's still going to be ****. Has there ever been a good game-to-movie adaptation? Novels and even comic books can be made into reasonably good motion pictures but I don't ever remember a video game turning into a good movie. Every one that I've seen is absolute garbage.

How many honest-to-god attempts have there been? Actually the first Mortal Kombat movie wasn't that bad. I don't expect these to be masterpieces; if they're halfway entertaining, that's fine with me. Look at Halo - I noticed that Bungie & Microsoft didn't allow Uwe to get his hands on that franchise! Besides, there are plenty of halfway decent directors who could do a better job. Someone on my petition brought up George Romero - now that would be a pretty decent director!

You spoilt my joke, I was hoping someone was going to mention the plot... "Plot? There was a plot?!"

You also shouldnt forget Bob Hoskins as a plumber in Super Mario Bros. An outstanding conversion that really captured the character of the game...

If Uwe is listening, I will do it for $4.5 million... Now who is gonna play Jack?http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

^ hehe, well I havn't seen those bad Uwe movies - but you seem passionate enough so i'll change my opinion to "hmmmm".

Mortal Kombat was a good solid movie http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif mortal kombat 2 was not.

I thought Resident Evil was good (That was first a game right?)

but streetfighter wasn't the best.

what is doom like? :P

Mortal Kombat (1st one) was pretty good I would have to say. Second one I didn't care for but heck I think Farcry is awesome and even if it was some bad director that makes a movie of it I will still go see it just because its farcry. lol
