Fear Effect Coming to the Big ScreenGoon
Mindfire Entertainment are looking to turn the popular Eidos video game Fear Effect into a movie. Right now they are in talks with Stanley Tong to direct the film from a script written by Steve Kriozere.
Fear Effect is being described as Mission: Impossible meets Silent Hill. The film according to the Hollywood Reporter the film will faithfully follow the video game. The only major difference will be where the story takes place. Instead of an alternate world it will be 10 years in the future.
This is very good news for reasons that may not seem very apparent just by reading the trades. This game was originally optioned by Boll KG, since than nothing has been said about this project. So at least we can rest easy knowing another one has slipped through Uwe Boll's hands.
