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.
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!
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.
