inFamous movie 'feels infinitely far away' - Sucker Punch

Studio co-founder is sceptical about silver screen success

An inFamous movie seems a distinct possibility when you consider the likes of Uncharted taking to the big screen and both Dead Space and Red Faction getting comparatively smaller live action treatments.

But for Sucker Punch co-founder and inFamous 2 producer Brian Fleming, inFamous on the silver screen is a long way off.


When we asked about the possibility of the IP moving beyond the gaming arena, he replied with scepticism:

"I don't know, I get asked this question a lot and I should have been prepared for it but the reality is I'm a video games guy and I know there's been Uncharted and Halo and there was even a script written for an inFamous movie two years ago.

"It feels like we're still infinitely far away from having an inFamous movie," he added. "Could it happen? Absolutely it could happen. Will it happen? I'm pretty sceptical, I don't know.

"You know you hear these weird stories," he continued. "I heard some weird rumours about one of these video game movies where they changed the character to a guy so that they could cast this actor and you're like, 'What the heck is going on?' It seemed kind of disrespectful to the game.

"I would be excited only because of the life experience for me," he concluded. "Would it be a good movie? I don't know. I don't know anything about making movies. I know about making games."

Some pretty spectacular inFamous 2 screenshots were released yesterday which makes us think we'll be satisfied enough with the game itself.
