Call of Duty Movie

Last spring, we found out that Activision Blizzard Studios has ambitious plans for bringing their successful Call of Duty video game franchise to the big screen. Attempting to follow in the footsteps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video game company turned movie studio has years of movies planned, as well as television shows. But they have to begin with one movie first, and it appears they’ve finally found a director.

Activision Blizzard Studios is currently in talks with Sicario 2: Soldado director Stefano Sollima to be at the helm of the Call of Duty movie. That must mean Sollima did a good job with the sequel he inherited from Sicario director Denis Villeneuve. Read More »

Five Nights at Freddy's Movie

A film adaptation of the hit video game Five Nights at Freddy’s has been in the works for a few years now. Originally, the project was set up at New Line Cinema with Monster House director Gil Kenan on board, but now a new director is being brought in as the project finds a new home.

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is now situated at Blumhouse, which feels like a much better fit for the story of a security guard dealing with animatronic robots who come to life late at night at a place not unlike Chuck E. Cheese. And now Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone director Chris Columbus has been brought in to take the helm.

mario movie

Updated: Tonight, Nintendo confirmed that a Mario movie is indeed in the works:

Our original story from November 2017 follows.

The last time Mario and Luigi leapt across the big screen, they were played by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in a 1993 live-action film that set the stage for the many, many bad and misguided video game adaptations to follow. But maybe live-action was just the wrong fit for the famed video game duo. Maybe animation is the right track.

A new Super Mario Bros. movie could come our way via Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. All Nintendo needs to do is sign on the dotted line.
