We all know the pitfalls of making games out of films and films out of games. Most often, the end result is one level of a disaster or another. It was only a matter of time before someone figured it out. Now, Fox Atomic along with Zombie currently have a brand new property under development. BLACKLIGHT is going to be a comic book, a feature film and a military-strategy video game!
Ok. This sounds promising. We could actually get both a decent flick and a decent film. In Variety's Cut Scene interview tone of BLACKLIGHT is compared to CHILDREN OF MEN! A militaristic version of Children of Men? I could go for that! Now, there are a couple questions that I must ask:
"Who will compose the music?"
"Will the same person compose the music for both movie and game?"
So are you excited about the potential for both a decent film and game here?
Variety's Cut Scene recently posted a very intriguing interview with some of the key players of this new venture. You can check it out here.
