FATAL FRAME ADAPTION
Tecmo Inc. announced today at the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3) that it is finalizing a deal with DreamWorks to produce a live-action movie based on the survival-horror video game Fatal Frame. The game, which was released on Sony PlayStation 2 last March, has garnished positive acclaim for its innovating gameplay and creepy storyline.
Mike De Luca, DreamWorks President of Production, said, 'We were amazed by the fantastic creative vision driving `Fatal Frame.' Our plan is to take the scariest video game of all time and transport that vision - complete with all the tension, fear, and storyline intact - to the big screen for everyone to experience. This is an exciting, new project with outstanding potential for DreamWorks.'
DreamWorks is currently in post-production on another horror film, The Ring, starring Naomi Watts. That film is slated for release this August.
Tecmo, Ltd. President Junji Nakamura also commented on the deal. 'We are happy that DreamWorks, one of the premier movie studios in the world, recognized the greatness of `Fatal Frame' by Tecmo, one of the premier game developers in the world. We have great things planned for `Fatal Frame' in the future, and this motion picture deal is only the beginning.'
