Condemned: Criminal Origins being turned into an 'Unforgettable' film

Word from the Hollywood Reporter is that director Tarsem Singh is set to helm the upcoming science fiction thriller, The Unforgettable. The film's plot involves a cop who, over the course of a murder investigation, realizes that he's not human and becomes entangled in a war between good and evil aliens.

The Warner Bros. Pictures film (originally titled Species X) is based off of a Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment videogame. Can you guess which one? That game is Condemned: Criminal Origins, and it was not about a war between good and evil aliens. Or maybe it was -- I loved that game, but man, it didn't make much sense.

Let's hope that the film adaptation, written by Kurt Sutter (who looks like Fabio and wrote a bunch of episodes of The Shield), will be a bit more coherent. If anything, the film will likely be gorgeous  -- director Tarsem Singh is best known for stellar looking music video and commercial work. Singh also directed the visually stunning 2000 film, The Cell, which didn't make too much sense either, now that I think of it.

Oh, well. I guess if we're looking for stupid, easy to understand entertainment, there's always Uwe Boll's Far Cry ... and porno.

NES-era Godzilla immortalized as an action figure

NECA is on a roll with these videogame-inspired toys, though admittedly Godzilla looks a bit like he's decked out in camouflage here. The 6" figure is modeled after Godzilla: Monster of Monsters, and it comes packaged in a cool faux-weathered box based on the NES game's cover art. It's expected to ship in July 2015, and pre-orders are open for $21.99. Don't make eye contact. [Via Super Punch]more
