MTV Multiplayer’s posted a nerdgasm-inducing bit of info that could bring two awesome sci-fi visions together, if we all wish hard enough. In an interview with MTV’s Russ Frushtick, Rob Pardo–Blizzard’s Executive Vice President of Game Design–offered up the following observation about moving their game franchises onto the silver screen:
“We’ve always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It’s just tricky to find the right partners. We probably could have made a [‘StarCraft’] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it’s really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That’s always been the challenge for us. I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, ‘You want to make a ‘StarCraft’ movie?’ we’d probably sign that.”

TempleofGhoul’s Dejan Ognjanovic got his hands on a copy of Guillermo del Toro’s script At the Mountains of Madness, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s novella of the same name. Based on his first impressions, the film is feels like “a Hellboy movie without Hellboy, with a light dose of Carpenter’s The Thing. “

He basically sums up the entire plot in a few words saying that “It is a period piece: the frame story takes place in 1939, at the very beginning of World War II, but the bulk of the film is made up of a flashback narration by the last survivor of the previous expedition to the South Pole from 1930. In this version, it is somewhat simplified into: Scientists go to Antarctica, resurrect primaeval monsters, mayhem ensues.”

These new photos from the set of Rise of the Apes won’t give away any details about what the CGI primates will look like in their final stage, but they do show a bit of what it takes to create them. Here’s a glimpse of a stuntman wearing a mo-cap suit and shambling on all fours on the streets of San Francisco.

The Hunger Games Looking For Director and Gets PG-13 Rating

Now that Mockingjay — the third and final book in Suzanne Collins’ bestselling Hunger Games trilogy — has been published, fans have turned their attention to the in-progress adaptation of the first book, The Hunger Games.

Movie studio Lionsgate has opted for a PG-13 rating for the dystopian story, which should just about be doable. Fans of the book will recall main character Katniss’s involvement in the televised Hunger Games, which saw 24 contestants in a fight to the death. There can only be one winner in Collins’s brutal story of war, which made for an action-packed but violent read.

Collins wrote a draft of the movie script, with Billy Ray (State of Play) stepping in to polish it off. Now the search is on for a director, thanks to the movie’s expected production start in early 2011.
