The Just Cause movie is an origin story

8:00 PM on 12.18.2010 // Maurice Tan

Justcause.com posted an interview with two of the movie's producers: Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner. Askarieh produced the Hitman movie and his other new projects include SpyHunter, Hack/Slash, Hitman 2, Kane & Lynch and Jonny Quest. Eisner is best known for producing Hamlet 2.

The upcoming Just Cause movie will be an origin story centered around Rico and how he transforms into the Scorpion, making it "a great action/adventure with a strong central character; two MUST HAVE elements for a good action film." Secondary characters like Sheldon will also be "used".

Askarieh and Eisner also talk about how to deal with video game movies and say filmmakers should treat the source material as seriously as a novel, and how important a good script is. Like Hitman right? Michael Ross is writing the script, so let's hope it's not this one or that he was not responsible for the mess that was Turistas. A 3D treatment sounds likely and they are "shooting for a PG-13".

Ehm, did anyone play Just Cause for the strong character and the story? And would you watch it if it starred Sean Connery and Laurence Fishburne again?
