Though not as critically acclaimed or financially successful as other games of its ilk
, The Getaway
series has found a cult following in the "Get Carter" crowd -- the aficionados of British crime cinema. This niche group of gangster-loving film buffs will probably be pleased to learn that not only is a Getaway release still on its way to the PS3
, but a film adaptation of the game is also possibly in the cards.
These hints were dropped by The Getaway 3
's writer, Katie Ellwood, who mentioned that SCEA was in talks with various production houses to try and hand off the rights to bring the series to theatres. It's certainly a better body of work to base a movie off of than other game-adapted films we can think of
-- a sentiment we wouldn't suggest disagreeing with, unless you wish to be fed to half-starved pigs
(link NSFW, and completely awesome).
