At Least 28 Video Game Movies In Production

Illustration for article titled At Least 28 Video Game Movies In Production put together a nice list of every video game movie scheduled to come over the next few years. Did you know someone is actually making a Joust movie?


Keep in mind, however, that these dates are not cemented at all. Some of these films are still in very early planning stages and could possibly be scrapped down the road. For example, I doubt Cold Fear and Fear Effect will be coming out by the end of this year. I went ahead and linked them all to their IMDB page (you're welcome!), but some need pro passes for access. Let me know if there are any missing from the list, please.

Well, color me shocked. While I'm certain titles like Earthworm Jim and Spyro will be big hits with the young crowds, I have to question the marketing risk involved in making a movie based on The King of Fighters, or Tekken. We all know how well it has worked out before. Mortal Kombat was stupid fun, but its sequel could literally cause brain damage, and Street Fighter: The Movie is so embarrassing that it can't even be watched for a laugh. And I can't even get into the DOA's still too soon, it would be like rubbing salt in an open wound...
