THQ Pursuing Red Faction Movie

Okay, so what game developer isn't trying to get a chunk of Hollywood money these days?

The number of films based on games continues to pile up; there's "Prince of Persia" coming in May, and we just heard that Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx have been confirmed for the "Kane & Lynch" movie. Now, according to CVG, THQ would like to pursue a Red Faction big-screen adaptation. In fact, they say the movie will actually release alongside the new title, just like Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and the aforementioned picture. THQ vice president Danny Bilson says it's part of the company's new "trans-media" strategy, which will of course involve movies in addition to games. He says THQ will be doing the "most robust trans-media plays anybody's ever seen in the games business," and they will soon announce "some really interesting stuff." One of the first announcements is related to Red Faction. Said Bilson:

"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."

Yeah, well, we have yet to see an "awesome triple-A game" correspond with an "awesome triple-A movie" but we have to admit that Prince has a shot of doing that in May. So are you interested in the idea of a Red Faction film? It's about time Hollywood returned to Mars, right?
