Movies based on games rarely please the fans

Activision opposes Call of Duty movie

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has dismissed rumours of a Call of Duty movie.

A profile by the New York Times, noted that although Kotick he had received a number of offers for a movie he had turned down every one.

The reasoning for the stance is that “movies based on video games rarely please devoted fans and could taint the brand.”

Fans of games that have been made in to movies, such as Doom and Resident Evil, might agree. Director Uwe Boll has built a career on making such films, having made movies based on Postal, Far Cry and BloodRayne – and earned himself the title of ‘worst filmmaker in the world’ from irate fans as a result.
