The Getaway Coming to Theatres

   The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that Sony Pictures is in the final stages to acquire film rights to the PlayStation 2 game The Getaway. Production would be run by Screen Gems, the same film unit responsible for the Resident Evil movie. Accordingly, The Getaway film could begin production early next year. A release date is expected to coincide with the video game sequel, as official negotiations are expected to be complete in the near future.

   Brendan McNamara, director of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe says, "We approached the development of the game in the same way as you would a movie from writing the script, building real sets and hiring professional actors fusing game and film production techniques into one medium. Our goal was to create a videogame as culturally significant as film, and The Getaway delivers on that promise."
