Sergei Prokofiev's Russian fairy tale from 1936 Peter and the Wolf is next to get the modern treatment, and as any true fan of fairy tales can tell you, they are certainly not the kind of bedtime fodder you would want your kids diggin' on. Unless of course you're like us and want to bring your buggers up the right way by letting them cut their teeth on the macabre!
Word just broke that one of our favorite creature-laden sword and sorcery animated epics from the Eighties, Ralph Bakshi's Fire and Ice, is getting the big screen live action treatment from none other than Robert Rodriguez. Excited? We are!
If you've never played the Playstation 3 serial killer on the loose game Heavy Rain (review here), then you missed out on one of the single most unique game play experiences ever created.

With an adaptation of the horror comic sensation Preacher still stewing, another property from the same writer is getting ready to be shopped around. One of our favorites, too -- the amazingly violent Crossed from Avatar Press.
Well here we are again, kids. The highly rumored live action adaptation of one of the most successful video game franchises in history is now becoming the Ross Perot “It’s on. It’s off. It’s on again” of the movie world. Getting the Gears of War film off the ground has been troubled from the start, and rumors of development, budgetary, and story problems are not helping.
What once was old is new again, at least as far as movies based on video games. Universal is developing an Asteroids movie. Fox is developing a Missile Command movie. Producers have been trying to get a big screen Joust and Pac-Man movie off the ground for years now.

Considering the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I’m surprised that Hollywood never got around to milking the adult fantasy genre for more content.
