The Just Cause Movie Wants To Be Like Bond, James Bond

Illustration for article titled The Just Cause Movie Wants To Be Like Bond, James Bond

Just Cause, a game series starring a swarthy man bathed in tight shirts and explosions, was always going to get a film adaptation. Thankfully, that adaptation sounds faithful to the games. Well, as faithful as you could get.

The game's racial stereotypes will never make the big screen, nor the specifics from a pair of stories so awful you forget them while you're playing the games, but the important stuff, that's there. Like star Rico. And his grappling hook. And that's it!

The Just Cause movie, which is being written by Michael Ross, will be an origin story, telling the tale of a man who transforms into the international gun for hire known as "The Scorpion".

The movie's production team is hoping to capture a "Casino Royale" vibe, full of "hyper real" fight sequences. Or, as "hyper real" as a man with a magic grappling hook and a salsa dancer's outfit can manage, at least.

Complete over the top and NON REALISTIC action, plenty of big ass, if slightly pointless, explosions and BOOM, most faithful adaptation of a video game to film ever.

Good News is i'm pretty sure Hollywood has that down pat.

And for this game, that's not a bad thing. I just love going around and messing shit up.

Though my accidental ejection(damn space bar) from a plane, which recreated a particular event, made me feel a little...guilty (I swear it was unintended).
