You Might See Movies Based On Saints Row And Metro
Deep Silver wants to go Hollywood. Or at least, several ideas to do so are on the table.
In speaking to VentureBeat, Koch Media (parent company of Deep Silver) CEO Klemens Kundratitz said they're looking into exploring film opportunities for all its franchises.
So that means movies based on Saints Row and Metro are very possible, as Kundratitz said that "if a company can deliver that transmedia experience, we are probably one of the few that have the ambition and ability to deliver that." Deep Silver recently picked up the Saints Row IP from the now-defunct publisher THQ and Saints Row 4 is due later this year. Metro: Last Light is set to release next month. Kundratitz did remind everyone that these are "long-term strategic goals." Also don't forget that a Dead Island film is already in the works.
A "Saints Row" movie would be absolutely downright totally insane. If it was done faithfully, I'm not even sure it could squeak in with an "R" rating. That sucker might have to be NC-17 or something.
