"Fear Effect" Goes from Game to Movie

by | May 17, 2006 | Comments

Mark A. Altman, producer of "The Specials" and both "House of the Dead" flicks, will bring the old PlayStation game "Fear Effect" into the multiplexes — and it’s a project he describes as "Mission: Impossible" meets "Silent Hill." Hm.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Mindfire Entertainment has announced its plans to turn the popular Eidos video game "Fear Effect" into a feature film, with director Stanley Tong in talks to helm the action picture. Mindfire CEO Mark A. Altman ("House of the Dead 2," "DOA: Dead or Alive") is set to produce with Mindfire chairman Mark Gottwald and senior vp business affairs Chuck Speed, based on a screenplay by Steve Kriozere. The film is being repped internationally by Yarek Danielak’s Arsenal Pictures in Cannes. Altman described the movie as "Mission: Impossible" meets "Silent Hill," adding that the film will faithfully follow the story line of the original PlayStation game. It will be set 10 years in the future, however, rather than in the alternate world of the source material."

Stanley Tong’s previous films include "Rumble in the Bronx," "Supercop 2," and … "Mr. Magoo"?
