Has anyone heard any news of this? This was a pretty old article that I found sitting around. Any word of it coming soon? I figure John Woo could do a pretty good job of it.......better have someone good as Samus if it does get made.

Aye. I read in a EGM that whoever played the T-X in Terminator 3 was possibly in."

OMG that would be awesome, she is HOT

I'm thinking that she could do one heck of a good job as Samus (yeah, she is hot to boot). Although, it makes me wonder what the movie would be like in complete CGI...."

Well, in Terminator 3, she says like 3 lines so i don't know how good of an actor she really is

What you don't realize is that she starred in Bloodrayne.

It's in production hell so don't be expecting it. It was supposed to come out on the summer of '06, and it didn't.

Yeah I know.....but Spider-Man was in production hell for about ten years and it still came out, so who knows eh?"

By then any viable actresses would be pretty old. And they would have to find a whole new list.

True. I'm thinking that they could just do a straight up CGI version and have Jennifer Hale play Samus like she halfways did in the Prime series. I bet her voice would be perfect."

Ten years would probably change her voice.

I sound nothing like me when I was seven.

They did it with Sean Connery in the From Russia With Love game....

sure, his voice sounded older, but that was a good 30 years after he stopped being in Bond movies.

Ten years for Hale would'nt be all that bad. She's what......thirty, tops?"

so far guys that idea was dropped and dropped fast. they "might" in the future but the ideas been scrapped for now

I hadn't heard it was "dropped", but heard that it was on the ropes before the started pre-production....

I'm not really holding out much hope for it, though."

well lets think of the past totally CGI movies(which this movie would need to be) FF Spirits Witin was a great movie but BOMBED in the theaters. Advent Children went straight to DVD for this reason and made a ton of money. I cant think of any other ones that werent cartoons but my points been made.

The idea was held for a while and its been a few years and no updates. so their for its been dropped.

Yeah, that's pretty much how it went (although I kinda thought the first FF movie sucked.....at least Advent Children was mildly entertaining).

It'd be cool to do it like Beowulf.

Unfortunately, it must be said so that none of us keep our heads in the clouds about this: even if this movie were to be made, you know that the people to be assigned to make it would so drastically alter it from what we've known it to be that all that would come out would be a movie based in space, with a lady in a battlesuit. They would slap the name "Metroid" on the movie, and sit back feeling confident that they've made something better than the original and fans everywhere will love them for it. Her name probably won't even be Samus until they change it back due to fans being outraged on the internet.

Now, as for MY dreams for this movie, it would comfort my own fears to know that they chose an actress that was older (late 30's to mid-40's) and wasn't simply in it because she was attractive. Realistically, women who take careers like hers seriously don't have faces and bodies that look like they had an easy life. This doesn't mean I want some hag, but a perfect example is Sarah Conner from Terminator II. Yes, she almost had to be in it because of being cast in the first movie, but who would have expected her to pull off her character as well as she did? She didn't go into it wanting to just be some hottie on the screen.

As for director, I would like Michael Bay. At least with him, you know he only tweaks the story enough to make a story to tell. He doesn't set out to remake the original, but merely to make it work on film.

As for Mother Brain, didn't they find a enormous jelly fish off the coast of Australia a couple years back? ;)

Aye.....Hollywood would butcher the property itself......

Michael Bay wouldn't be so bad, but if he were in it, he might screw with the story a little too much (IE: Transformers. Good movie, but the story was messed).

Actress? I still think that I'd go with Kristanna Loken, or whatever her name is. Samus doesn't talk all that much anyway.

Giant Jellyfish? Heck yeah!

if they are makeing the metrold movie, it's going to suck just like the rest of the list crap movie video games, ff advent children was the only movie that did not suckass, ff spirits witnin was boring and have nothing to do with the ff video games, the cgi was good tho that's it, lol oh yeah leave jessica alone she hot,

Kristanna Loken might play Samus in Metroid movie ? Man ! That would be awesome. She has a heck of a Sci-Fi role going on too. She has been a Terminator, she was in Bloodrayne, and she has played Painkiller Jane ! Wow if she adds Samus too her credits this will be her biggest role ever.

FF Advent Children sucked. It was only good for it's CGI component. It's entire story only muddled with Final Fantasy VII even more. While I'll say it succeeded in pure entertainment, it wasn't a good cinematic experience.

@KS: Nah, I found out that that wasn't true later, actually. Darn EGM and their jokes.

Yeah, that's the most logical outcome. Also, please watch the language........it's a site rule.

Hey I saw this and I gotta agree with Sparda that advent children sucked balls. The story was to milk the money of pathetic fanboys like myself. It's fun to look at, but the story was a piece of crap.

And on the Metroid movie... lol Boll... I hope he stays away from my favorite games. And if they ever make a Metroid movie, the casting of Samus will make or break this movie for me.

#23 Posted by zero edge (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

LOL He's not going to read that, nor is anyone going to read an online petition. I was watching one of his interviews on AoTS and he was pretty much like "Screw you guys I'll make whatever the hell I want."... not exact quotes though

Oh and one more thing about Advent Children, usually I'd watch my favorite movies/shows without getting bored. I'll watch Advent Children to see some cool fight scenes, but after watching the whole movie a few times I can't stand watching the entire story anymore. It was so watered down, and they were like "hey lets bring back Seph since the fans love him to death instead of making a totally original story."

I didn't know you watch AOTS and after atching all of AC I thought it was bad. The graphics were good and the fight scenes were great but everything else bad.

THANK YOU! Finally, someone agrees with me that AC blew chunks. Definitely, whoever plays Samus will either save the movie or destroy it. I signed my name on that petition to stop Boll from making movies........I wonder if anyone else on the site has, too."

Yeah Advent Children wasn't worth the time it took to download. I hope this movie doesn't suck because the fact is movies based on games suck. I nominate a pretty girl who can kick @$$ to play Samus. I nominate Lara Croft.

LOL good ol' Boll... I might actually check out Postal, it did look kind of funny. But back to trashing AC, I seriously have to fast forward through all non-fighting scenes now... even when I;m high or drunk D=

BUT... Crisis Core ROCKED!!!!!!!! Even though it was a hell of a short game at 10-14 hours.... it's the best FF7 spin off, probably ever.

Is Postal the one about 9/11? I remember some early critics thinking it was actually good......what is this world coming to? Lol."

It's going to go to a world where movies based on games are good and E.T was the best game of all time.
