Morning Q&As

  • House Of The Dead 2 Movie
    Gamecloud's House Of The Dead 2 Director Q&A talks with Michael Hurst, director House of the Dead 2, the upcoming film adaptation of the horror game: "The film takes place on a university campus that has been overrun by zombies. So the first part of the film involves the college getting attacked. We chose to film just the first few minutes as if the film was a Porky's type romp. We asked our D.P., the great Ray Stella, to tone down his usual game, to shoot it kinda flat, the way those films in the 80's were made. Then, when the zombies turn up it comes as more of a shock. Basically we wanted to get the audience in that Police Academy frame of mind, show' em some comedy and some naked girls...then have zombies turn up and ruin everything!"
  • Video Games Live
    Gamecloud's Video Games Live Update Q&A talks with Tommy Tallarico, one of the organizers of the video game concert tour, talking about the ups-and-downs of this year's edition, and plans for the future: "Our first big announcement will be the return to the Hollywood Bowl. We feel confident (without being over-ambitious) that those 11,000 people will return in force and we hope to break our record of putting on the biggest video game concert in the world. We will also be making an "official" announcement next week about San Jose (the original birthplace of video games) and the Game Developers Conference which is happening in March. Since Clear Channel is no longer part of Video Games Live we are forming very strong alliances with many well known and already established events and sponsors around the world."

Why not establish a Monty Python feel to the early part of the movie and then have rude zombies show up and making outrageous demands of people....and then when the zombies show up everybody will be surprised because NOBODY EXPECTS THE ZOMBIE IMPOSITION.

Original Police Academy and original Porkys are 2 good movies. I actually think the introduction to HOTD2 sounds like a neat idea. Sort of like the genre flip in From Dusk Til Dawn. Shame they've spoilt the joke by revealing it here.

Why not a Fallout movie or a Longest Journey movie?


EDIT: I actually read the spiel.

I can imagine the PR plan for House of the Dead 2 fits on one page like this:

1) Get interviews with game sites, cuz they'll talk to anyone.
2) Mention naked girls will be in it.
3) Profit.

I just don't understand, why House of the Dead? What makes that game so special that there needs to be two or movies based off? Why not one of the many way better game properties that could be made into movies?

When your director is going for a Police Academy/Porky's feel... you know you're in for a lesser movie than even Uwe Boll would do.
