It looks like video game movies are going to be around for a long time…unless I some how figure out a way to go back in time and stop video games from ever being made. That’s so crazy that it just might work.
Moviesonline.ca reports that a “Duke Nukem” movie is officially in the works.
It’s being worked on by the same guy who directed the “Max Payne” movie, another video game remake. He’s become such an expert on directing video game movies that he also has plans to make “Pac-Man: The Movie,” “Tetris: The Movie” and “Pong: The Movie” starring Sam Elliott as the Left Paddle.
Of course, Duke Nukem is famous for making it big with one video and promising a sequel that has taken more than 10 years in development just to make two trailers. Let’s hope this film suffers the same fate.
The game borrows a lot of lines and style from kick-ass action movies, so remaking a game that’s remaking a bunch of other movies could causes audiences’ heads to explode. I’m just kidding. This film won’t have an audience.
