John Woo Exploring 'Metroid' Film. "The movie will center on the origins
of the game's female protagonist, sexy bounty hunter Samus Aran, and relate
her adventures battling the insidious life-sucking Metroids and their
controlling force, Mother Brain."
now if they did something we wouldn't expect, like...say...cast Julianna Moore as Samus Or have her go through the whole film in her armor, and then at the end she takes off her helmet and you see it's really a man!
