Saints Row movie in the works

THQ confirms silver screen tie-in for third game

THQ's confirmed a Saints Row movie is in the works.

Speaking during an E3 meeting this morning, the publisher's VP of core games, Danny Bilson confirmed the publisher's already working with a 'major' filmmaker to head up the gangster flick, but we doubt it's Scorsese.

THQ wasn't shy in admitting that the film will tie-in with the upcoming third Saints Row game and it's aiming to release both at the same time.

Core games VP, Danny Bilson said: "What we have coming on Saints Row - and we'll announce it in December - is the most robust transmedia play on any game ever done.

"We will have a movie with a major filmmaker that will be tied to our content and we will be ideally day-and-date with that movie."

More soon.
