Rambo Game Plans

MCV has word that development is underway on a game based on the Rambo series of violent veteran movies. Here's word on the project, which is coming from UK-based publisher Reef Entertainment:

“I am a big fan of Sylvester Stallone movies, and when we had the opportunity to secure the video game rights from StudioCanal for the Rambo franchise, we had to grab it with both hands,” said Reef Entertainment CEO Peter Rezon.

“With the success of the most recent Rambo film, and an international appetite for action movies with Expendables 2 scheduled for release next summer, we felt now was a good time to do something special with this licence.” Craig Lewis, commercial director at Reef added: “We have big ambitions for Reef and the Rambo IP is the first step in establishing us as a worldwide player.

“Rambo will be a triple-A title on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and will capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action which made the Rambo movies so successful.”

The Thing remake is from the producers of the DotD remake, not the director of the DotD remake.

Yeah it's actually directed by pretty much a nobody - and if they announced they were remaking bionic commando and to stay in touch with the franchise were only going to use 8 bit sprites would that be a good thing?

Edit: actual trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txjm94GnrPA

Btw could somebody please teach Mary Elizabeth Winstead to act??? after Die Hard 4 and Scott Pilgrim you'd think some hollywood casting director would notice she had the emotional range of a dog turd. Yet here she is again - annoying me just in the trailer.

PS there's no way this film will be good - the isolation and paranoia is killed by the fact it's a prequel. It would also need to outgore about 95% of films before it - whilst still managing a HUGE shock factor. "The Thing" truly was the cumulation of horror, suspense and thriller genres - now they're going to "re-envision" it with a girl who can't act and over the top CG? Pass.
