'Mass Effect 3,' the immensely popular third installment of the video game series, sold about 1.3 million copies across all gaming platforms within its first month and quickly became the year's bestselling video game. So it only makes sense that Legendary Entertainment would want to adapt this hit video game for the big screen. The studio first picked up the rights to the project back in 2008, but now they're finally moving forward with it, having picked up a new writer to pen the script.
'God of War,' Sony's Greek epic game for the Playstation, is one of the more ambitious video games attempting to transition from the console to the big screen. Aiding that transition will be screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who have toiled away in the horror genre for many years in the service of films like 'Saw' (they penned parts IV through VII) and 'Piranha' (they gifted us with 'Piranha 3DD'). Naturally, they won't be taking their duties with 'God of War' lightly, and the duo recently gave IGN a few morsels of information regarding their work on the project.
'God of War' is one of the most popular franchises on the Playstation gaming system. The story of Kratos and his long standing battle against the gods of Olympus is awesome and a lot of fun to play. And now it looks as if the big screen adaptation that has been talked about for years is finally going to happen.
Gamers will be delighted to hear that the popular Assassin's Creed franchise that follows the elusive killer Desmond Miles is getting some big screen time in a new movie adaptation. If that weren't news enough, Michael Fassbender will be trading in his Magneto helmet for a cloak to star in said film. But the question now is, will he be our Desmond?
