Just Cause Game-Based Movie in the Works


A movie based on the game series “Just Cause” is currently being produced by L+E Pictures’ Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner, and the script is being written by Michael Ross. Adrian Askarieh is known for producing Hitman and is currently working on the upcoming Kane and Lynch movie. In an interview by Eidos, they stated that the movie will be an origin story detailing Rico’s transformation into Scorpio, and it may even be filmed in 3D. There are no details available on when it will start shooting or who will star in the movie.

We are using all the strong elements from the games to create a great “origin story” for Rico and how he transforms into the Scorpion character… The action we are going for almost demands the 3D treatment

    why does hollywood keep producing videogame-based movies? when have any of them done well in the box office? resident evil, I guess. I wonder how prince of persia did? it had the benefit of hotness in its two main characters, but it was a terrible movie, unsurprisingly.

    Well, it’s the highest grossing video game movie of all time, so it did alright. I still haven’t seen it though but i heard it wasn’t very good

    Yeah Hitman is such a great movie ;) I’m looking forward to see if Just Cause is as well as Hitman!
