So many new movies projects have been revealed that will adapt the video games, among them there are those of Bioshock and Gears Of War, and we could have also had a movie on GTA, and instead it will not be like that.
Starting from Grand Theft Auto in fact, thanks to an interview with Kirk Ewing, agent of the star and founder of the Veemee application, who spoke with Sam Houser, former head of Rockstar Games, it emerged that the company rejected a project that involved the film adaptation of the famous saga, would be directed by Tony Scott, the director of Top Gun, among the many films he directed, and starring Eminem.
Ewing told the story during an episode of the podcast Grandest Game by Bugzy Malone:
It was right after Grand Theft Auto 3. I thought it was still something going on in Sam’s head that he wanted to do.
I remember answering a call at 4:00 in the morning from one of the producers in Los Angeles who had an offer for a movie. He said, 'Kirk, we have Eminem starring in a Tony Scott movie, $5 million on the nail, are you interested?'
I called Sam and said, 'You must hear this. They want Eminem in a Grand Theft Auto movie, with Tony Scott directing.' He said, 'We’re not interested'."
At that point, there was no more talk of making a film, because he understood that their franchise was bigger than any movie that was feasible at the time."
So as you can see, that project died.
The movie about Gears Of War instead was announced about a week ago by Netflix and for now there are only rumors about what could be the actors involved in the production, but the creator of the game has clear ideas about, Bleszinski in fact, via twitter, he expressed his opinion that he would prefer that Chris Pratt not be considered as an actor to be taken to play one of the characters of the game.
May I remind you that Bleszinski has no role in the choice of actors for the movie and is no longer tied in any way to the saga.
But he would like Ryan Reynolds in the role of Baird, and Dave Bautista in the role of Marcus, the latter among other things would approve the participation in the movie as he is a fan of the saga, so much so that he also published a video on twitter to convince Netflix to choose him:
For those who followed the story of the TV series The Witcher in which it emerged that some writers despised the original work, and that the protagonist actor (Henry Cavill) who was a big fan of the saga, also abandoned the project, with subsequent regret of those who have seen the TV series and were waiting for the new seasons, knows how important it is to work with people and actors who love and know the original work.Who would you choose to play the characters in the Gears of War movie?
Surely the director of the Bioshock movie has very clear ideas regarding the writing of the project, as he anticipated that the movie will mirror the original work as it is well written and there is no need to change anything.
Francis Lawrence in fact, in an interview
"No, I know what you mean. When I think about it, I think about what we talked about earlier, which is that I think there are great video games around, but they are not supported by big ideas. Sometimes they’re great aesthetically or something, but I think they often end up looking empty because they’re not supported by real ideas. The question is that Bioshock is. The whole mythology and that world and the ideas from which it was born, there is really a lot."
Reassuring everyone that the adaptation will be faithful to the original work.
