THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT
THREE MORE VIDEO-GAME MOVIES WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT
Metal Gear Solid WHY IT COULD WORK Jordan Vogtroberts, a huge video-game fan, is directing. He knows how to marry spectacle with a decent story (Kong: Skull Island); after a decade of false starts, this could be the big-screen treatment Snake deserves. gears of war WHY IT COULD WORK The games were action spectacles, but also had human stories about the bonds forged between soldiers. Like Saving Private Ryan, just with reptilian aliens. Writer of the Avatar sequels, Shane Salerno, is on script duties. Portal WHY IT COULD WORK J.J. Abrams is producing the project, which brings his 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg into play. His calling card was a short film based on the game, so he’s already got a handle on the material.
