I've heard rumors that nintendo is making a metroid movie.

Yeah. They popped up awhile ago and have now flourished again. Jessica Simpson is rumored to play Samus Aran and Uwe Boll is rumored to direct it. I will admit that I have a huge crush on Simpson. I don't really know why, so I would love her in the film. But, I will also admit that she will probably destroy the character. She's not a good enough actress and definitely not tough enough.

The way I see it though is that ALL video game movies are bad, so they might as well give me something (someone like Simpson) good to look at.

Uwe Boll is terrible as well.

and another thing is she's too old. She's like 30 and Samus is in her 20s.

In which game? LOL she ranges from 18 to 28 throughout the time line of games. You can easily make a person look younger anyways. That has never held back a movie before...

Sonic the Movie was good, but it was an anime. Uwe Boll? eww? I don't think Simpson would make a good samus either.

Sonic who?

They've been talking about it for years, so it's obviously in development limbo. (Yes, I know that's not the right term, but I dunno if Amazon will let me post the right term or not!}

Simpson would make a good Samus, or wouldn't?

I don't see Jessica Simpson being a good Samus, either. I've always seen Samus as a strong, intelligent woman...and I'm sorry, but I think Jessica Simpson's too stupid to play Samus. Also, since I've yet to see a video game based movie that's actually any good...kill it!

Amen.

Now, I can see the not being strong enough argument, but don't take her acting in newly weds as her true knowledge level. She's actually a really smart woman.

Sam Marino says:
Maybe, but can she do a good Samus?

I would hope that Nintendo would not be so foolish as to give one of their cornerstone franchises to Uwe Boll at all. If it were to happen, I think Simpson would be all wrong, I think Keira Knightly would be my choice.

Simpson? LLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No way

Eh, I still think she's stupid.

Who's Keira Knightly?

Ali larter as samus FTW.

She was the chick in final destination (1 and part of 2) and starred in obsessed as the stalker.

One of my friends suggested Paris Hilton...I hope they're joking.

Well Resident Evil movies were excelent. And the upcoming one (the fourth?) will be good too. Watch the trailers. But some videogame movies were pretty bad.

i actually kinda liked Postal, because Uwe Boll got to make a stupid movie on purpose

Well if they do make it, I don't really care who's in it as long as it's good.

It would probably be better if it was animated. They can obviously do really well in that area.
