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?

They're mostly fine, but not awesome
Eh, nothing's really doing it for me this month
No. They're bad. Very bad. Sony should be ashamed
