    Maybe with a high profile director taking on the reighns of a video game adaptation it will raise the credibility and give these films an opportunity to be taken more seriously.
    Hopefully we will get more big name directors into the driver's seat of VG adaptations. Spielberg would do wonders with something like 'Final Fantasy' or 'Citizen Kabuto'.
    I just hope they do MGS properly, perhaps wait until VG adaptations become as respected as toy/anime adaptations. Then we'll have the horses as well as the cart.

    Sam Raimi doing Warcraft? 'Army Of Darkness' meets 'Conan The Barbarian'. Gold. :popcorn

    I would love to see the history of Warcraft done...take Warcraft I (pre-that even) all the way through World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King.

    All Sam has to do to make it a success is cast BC to walk in during an epic battle wearing a loud Hawaiian shirt causing both sides to stop fighting and stare at him silently.
    After a few seconds, BC states, "Bruce. Campbell." Huge close up of his grin and then he walks out of frame.....and the cinema crowd goes WILD!

    No 2 hour movie can ever do a video game justice, its impossible to be done right. I have high hopes though :)
