We guess Capcom were sick of Hollywood dicking up their franchise - as they’ve decided to go with what they know best - and commence work on a CGI Resident Evil movie. Hopefully this movie doesn’t prove our suspicions that Milla Jovovich is the best thing about any Resident Evil movie - because she won’t be in this one.

The writers strike has taken it’s first game movie casualty - the movie adaptation of Castlevania. Given that Castlevania is being directed by the same person that did Stomp the Yard, maybe this whole writers strike thing isn’t so bad after all.

The Hitman movie has lived up to everyone expectations - and turned out to be a massive pile of crud. Only 12% of Rotten Tomatoes reviews are positive, and most of those seemed to think it was merely average. When will they realize movies based on video games without Milla Jovovich wearing a red dress just don’t work?

Though the game is only fresh on the shelves, movie plans are already in full swing for Kane & Lynch. By full swing, I mean the studio is already in talks with Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton to star in the movie. As you can see from the comparison picture the two actors are a pretty good match for the roles of the murdering psychopaths.

Mike Newell, director of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is rumoured to be set to direct the long planed Prince of Persia movie. The movie has been in development for quite a while now, under the production of media mega-force Jerry Bruckheimer. We have it on good authority that the script, written by series creator Jordan Mechner, is already finished and that Newell is still in talks to direct.
Could the man who has arguably directed the best Harry Potter movie produce one of the first good video game movies?
