    I feel like the Halo movie is long over due.

    Out of that list of games already made into movies, have any of them been any good? I saw Doom and thought it was terrible.

    Actually it's not just based on World of Warcraft but on the entire Warcraft series and the movie will probably just be called "Warcraft". WoW didn't have an advanced plot, Warcraft III did so I hope they use the RTS games as an inspiration and not the MMO which was kinda flat.

    I personally would love to see a CGI Donkey Kong Country movie. Not something kiddie like the animated series they had a while ago, but something the fans of the old games (now around 20 years old) would enjoy. I'd love to hear orchestrated versions of David Wise' music in a movie theatre.

    Metal Gear Solid
    Prince of persia
    Gears Of War
    Splinter Cell
    Strangle hold

    These ones for me have a lot of potential to be a class film. Theyve all got good story lines in the game and i can see them being very adaptable to put into a film.

    -hints to my earlier post that I said I was looking forward to the PoP film-

    I think it is expected around 2009, looks like someone is having a wish come true.
