Thief Film Plans

The Tracking Board reports on plans for a film adaptation of the Thief series of stealthy, larcenous action games (thanks PCGamesN). Here's word on the project and the pedigree of the people behind it:

Vertigo and Prime Universe are developing a movie based on THIEF, the seminal stealth action video game from Looking Glass Studios and Eidos Interactive. Adrian Askarieh and Roy Lee are producing.

“Thief” is not the first stealth game that Prime Universe has adapted. Askarieh produced the 2007 film “Hitman,” starring Timothy Olyphant and Olga Kurylenko, based on the video game of the same name. A reboot entitled “Hitman: Agent 47″ is currently in production. Vertigo, meanwhile, is coming off its own successful adaptation, “The Lego Movie,” which grossed almost half a billion dollars worldwide and met with enormous acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

Hehehehe EXACTLY! Let's see, they'll HAVE to dress Garrett (Statham) in a expensive, but stretchy black business suit so Garrett can karate kick his way thru the streets and roof tops of 'The City'! Instead of bow and arrows, THIS Garrett fires justice from two chrome-plated 50. cal Desert Eagles while spouting his catch phrase, "What's Your's IS Mine, and I choose to take your LIFE!" *BLAM BLAM*

My God, if the similarities between this movie and the source material were any closer I seriously doubt I could tell the two apart! Fingers crossed fellas, this movie has win written all over it...

Casting agent: "I see here you played in the Thief movie. What role did you have?"

Aspiring actor: "I was the guard who kept walking the same circle and kept looking at the same relic in the glass case every 30 seconds."

I'd rather play that guard that the spin me right round baby guy. Pretty sure I'd have to hurl after doing that.

Hehehe.

Don't forget the explosions. LOTS of explosions.

Indeed. Have one of the paintings contain a secret message pointing to a great treasure, only to have that treasure point to a bigger treasure at the end of the movie.

I smell franchise.

a movie about a thief in a medieval/fantasy setting but no, that won't do. There isn't any previous IP there.

Robin Hood.

Thief: The Console, The Movie, The Reboot!

"We are so good, we are rebooting before the series ever begins"

"Just cause the game was a failure...."
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

15 minutes of the movie are consumed watching Garret shim open windows in real time.

And lots and lots of first person shots of shooting arrows! Woohoo!

Set in the year 2018 and Garrett is now a Cyborg. Featuring Inception bwaaaaa noises, bright lights to distract the viewer, and dubstep.

What Looking Glass produced was seminal. What Eidos produced was a POS. Really, just an awful game from people who very obviously had no clue what made the originals so good.

Ok? Is it based on the clearly better The Dark Project story?

Good questions. I certainly hope so.....
