Paul W.S. Anderson revealed that his next video game adaptation Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (working title) will be the last
The next Resident Evil movie will be your final Resident Evil movie, which is a big deal because there are literally thousands of Resident Evil movies. Millions even. But the T-Virus party is OVER because the next Resident Evil will be your last. Sure it will.
In an interview with Collider, long-time RE director Paul W.S. Anderson revealed that his next video game adaptation Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (working title) will be the last. And that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will most likely become the official name of the final movie, whenever he’s done writing it.
Looks like you’ll have to get your Milla Jovovich punching, kicking and shooting fix somewhere else. Her days as Alice are over.
Ratchet & Clank Announced for PS4 | Film Trailer
It’s been a dream of ours for years at Insomniac to see Ratchet & Clank on the big screen. We think the entire Ratchet & Clank universe is a perfect fit for moviegoers, from our unique cast of intergalactic characters and outrageous weapons to the majestic planets and cheeky humor.
So it’s with great pride I get to announce that Insomniac will continue our involvement with the Ratchet & Clank movie while developing a game that re-imagines the original Ratchet & Clank for PS4. As was mentioned during Sony’s press conference , the game will share the film’s vision of Ratchet’s origin story, and features updated gameplay along with completely new visuals that rival the best PS4 games on the market.
Both the movie and game will be available in the first half of 2015. Our California and North Carolina studios will work on the game together – marking our deepest cross-country collaboration since the Durham studio was founded in 2009. Many of the original developers responsible for the very first Ratchet & Clank game will get an opportunity to create the stunning Solana Galaxy our fans have been clamoring for. Longtime Design Director Brian Allgeier, North Carolina Studio Director Chad Dezern and Game Director Shaun McCabe will lead the project.
I’ve been personally involved with the Ratchet & Clank movie since pre-production began. Hopefully, you had a chance to see the film trailer shown during the press conference . We are happy with how production is progressing as everything feels authentic to the spirit of Ratchet & Clank. In fact, our key characters are voiced in the movie by the same fine folks who bring them to life in our games – talented actors such as James Arnold Taylor (Ratchet), David Kaye (Clank) and Jim Ward (Qwark) reprise their famous roles while we have a surprise or two still planned. Former Insomniac scribe-turned-Hollywood screenwriter TJ Fixman wrote the Ratchet & Clank movie’s original script. Renowned award-winning Insomniac artists David Guertin and Greg Baldwin created the character concepts for some of the new creatures appearing in the film — operating under their spectacular Creaturebox label .
And former Insomniac animation director Oliver Wade is helping oversee animation production at Rainmaker Entertainment.
We can’t wait to show you more from both the game and the movie. Expect to catch your first glimpse of the PS4 Ratchet & Clank game this fall – follow us on our social channels below to learn more. In the meantime, we hope you’ve polished off Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus or are brushing up on the PS2 classic games through the HD Collection on PlayStation 3 . Of course, you can also get your Ratchet & Clank fix on PS Vita via the HD Trilogy starting this July.
My Neighbor Totoro bus stop scene is my favorite part of this film and then I added Tee Fury’s BioShock design to this iconic background and added in a rain effect. Awesome isn’t it?
Actor Bob Hoskins Dies At 71
Actor Bob Hoskins, who portrayed Nintendo’s famed plumber in the 1993 big screen Super Mario Bros. film, has passed away at 71 of pneumonia. Hoskins announced retirement from acting in 2012 after diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease.
Despite the Super Mario Bros. movie’s critical panning, Hoskins is cemented in the mind of many gamers as the iconic mascot. His resume is both long and diverse, but returned to family-oriented films more than once.
His roles as Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Mister Smee in Hook (a role he reprised for SyFy’s Neverland) endeared him to children and the young at heart. His more serious parts proved him an actor of many talents and diverse skills.
"We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob," the actor’s wife Linda and children Alex, Sarah, Rosa and Jack said in a statement. "Bob died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia.”

The Last of Us Live-Action Movie in The Works
Screen Gems Takes On Sony PlayStation Vidgame Adaptation ‘The Last Of Us’
Screen Gems has signed on to distribute The Last Of Us, a live-action adaptation of the PlayStation 3 videogame from Naughty Dog. Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director for the game, will write the script. The creative architects will be Naughty Dog Co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, as well as Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley. They’ll team with Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures banner.
“Screen Gems’ Brian Dukes and Eric Ling brought this game to my attention insisting we go after it, and when I saw the quality of the storytelling, I knew the audience for this project was far greater than just the gaming community and that Neil Druckmann must write the screenplay,” Screen Gems President Clint Culpepper said.” I am thrilled that SCEA’s Riley Russell was able to get me in front of Neil and Evan Wells to plead my case. Sam and his team at Ghost House round out the perfect team to help realize Neil’s vision.”
Naughty Dog Co-president Wells called the combination of Screen Gems and Ghost House “a perfect fit. Since our game released last June, we’ve talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn’t have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards.”
The logline: Hardened survivor Joel teams with young and capable companion Ellie to journey through a radically transformed world some 20 years after an infectious pandemic ravages humanity. The game has won numerous awards and has been a big seller since its release last summer.

BioShock Movie (Canceled Project) Big Daddy Concept Art
by Scott Patton
In 2008, Universal started developing a live-action film for the popular video game series, BioShock. Gore Verbinski (“The Lone Ranger”) was set to direct a script to be written by John Logan (“The Last Samurai”). A year later, Watchmen struggled at the box office, which lead Universal to feel uneasy about producing a $200 million R-rated film. They requested that Gore try to make his vision for only $80 million to help mitigate their risk exposure. Gore balked at the request. He then slid over into the producer’s chair, and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Late”) was hired to helm the project. By early 2010, pre-production had begun, but not long afterward BioShock creator Ken Levine stepped in and pulled the plug for good. Levine felt as though Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was not a good match for BioShock, nor was Levine willing to make other compromises just to see his game come to life on the big screen. I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of a BioShock film, but until then let’s enjoy some Big Daddy character designs that Scott Patton made for Gore Verbinski’s BioShock film that was never-made.

World 1-1 is the first in a documentary series on the history of video games
World 1-1 is the first in a documentary series on the history of video games. This chapter is about the early years including Atari and how they helped to create a new industry. It focuses on the business deals, the personalities of the pioneers, and the creations of the engineers. This documentary will be a combination of interviews, archival footage, and reflection that retells the story to a new generation that may not know the roots of their favorite hobby.
World 1-1 will follow the early games before the arcade machine even existed. It will tell the story of how Atari created the games industry years before it should have happened and follow the lucky deals and unfortunate mistakes that almost destroyed the entire industry just as quickly as it was born. Atari was the fastest growing company in the United States at the time. It kickstarted Steve Jobs’ career, as well as others. The world’s first successful arcade machine was built there, along with the first popular home console. Atari and its engineers formed the games industry we know today. It’s time to tell this story, from the words of the creators themselves.
