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 2011 will be released October 2011 and was done by the same director that remade Dawn of the Dead.

Wrong.

If you scroll down, you will see that that is not what I typed, it is a response(by someone else) to my first post in this thread. Incorrect Quoting, arrgh!

*EDIT 2* Holy shit, after watching that trailer, it DOES appear to be a remake. Let the cursing and hair pulling begin.

Wrong again. It is a prequel.

EDIT: Even if it had been a remake, it could still have been good. Carpenter's "The Thing" itself was a remake (or reboot) of "The Thing from Another World" (1951).

I keep hearing and reading it is a prequel, but look at that trailer. It appears to be almost shot for shot a remake/reboot... of course teasers/trailers are often misleading, I guess we will see.

Also in my first post, I acknowledged Carpenter's thing was a remake. I know there is some hypocrisy in any outcry over a remake/reboot/prequel of a remake, but Carpenter's 'The Thing" was badass enough to trump the usual laws of the universe.

Wasn't this thread about Rambo or something?
