When we first heard
about a film adaptation of the Just Cause franchise, we relegated it to the same part of our head where we store the Leonardo DiCaprio/Nolan Bushnell biopic
: A fine idea with no shot of happening. Now it seems to be getting a bit more real with a subtitle -- "Scorpion Rising" -- and a rewrite by comics' Bryan Edward Hill, the man behind Broken Trinity: Pandora's Box
(a Witchblade mini-series) and Dolph Lungren picture The Mechanik
Perhaps more interesting is The Hollywood Reporter's assertion that a third Just Cause game is also in the works, something that's already been alluded to
by developer Snowblind. Could that be the secret identity of previously announced Project Mamba
, an Avalanche project due in ... 2014? Oh, we can't be that far off, can we?
