Red Faction to appear on silver screen

0

THQ's Danny Bilson revealed in an interview with CVG that Red Faction is slated to get the motion picture treatment. It's all part of what THQ is calling their "trans-media" strategy to developing franchises:

"My game is going to get made either way but what I do is I'm giving these movie guys the opportunity to meet me two or three years at the end with a triple-A, awesome game and a triple-A, awesome movie that compliment each other - and certainly don't repeat each other - and start to build a world and a fiction and all of that."

I'm all in favor of convergence, provided that the forms it takes are all of a relatively even level of quality. Red Faction is a pretty damn good series of games with an excellent setting that could transition well into film. If THQ is really serious about doing this right, as Bilson would have us believe, there's a lot of potential here.
