    Metroid Movie Details Announced
    The director of Alone in the Dark to helm the Michelle Rodriguez headlined sci-fi action flick.
    by Matt Casamassina

    April 1, 2005 - According to a report in today's Variety, famously low-budget movie company Troma Studios, best known for its Toxic Avenger franchise, is moving forward with a live-action adaptation of Nintendo's respected Metroid franchise. The production company has secured German director Uwe Boll for the project, according to the trade magazine.

    As a director, Boll has worked exclusively on videogame franchises, first piloting the critically panned Sega adaptation House of the Dead and more recently delivering audiences the box office bomb Alone in the Dark, which starred Christian Slater. The director recently completed a movie version of Majesco's BloodRayne games, and in addition to Metroid is tied to a number of future videogame-to-movie licenses, such as the PC first-person shooter Far Cry.


    "I couldn't be more excited to be involved with this project," Boll told Variety. "Samus Aran is one of the greatest heroine's in videogames and the Metroid universe is practically made for the big screen."

    Variety reveals that the tough and edgy Michelle Rodriguez has been lined up to play Metroid bounty hunter Samus Aran. Rodriguez is no stranger to videogame adaptations herself. The actress formerly starred in Hollywood's re-imagining of Capcom's survival horror title Resident Evil. We presume that the dark-haired beauty will be dying her hair blonde for her role as Samus.

    Ironically, Rodriguez may not be the biggest Metroid fan. When asked what her favorite videogame systems were in an online interview last year, she responded: "It's not GameCube, that's for sure... that machine's for kids. The games are juvenile."

    Purists may be discouraged to learn that the Metroid movie, which is still without an official name, will not follow the storylines in any of the games. Rather, the film will be set in the near future on an Earth that has recently been attacked by an alien race. Samus Aran, a scientist for the government, will don a special suit in order to fight off the alien attackers.

    "One thing the games have never done is explore the Samus character," Boll told Variety. "What does she do when she's not blasting things? What are her passions? I want people to learn about the woman behind the helmet."

    With a reported budget of $19 million, the movie is currently in pre-production and is set to start filming this June. Troma is shooting for a January 2006 release.

    Variety also didn't report any of this because it's an April Fools joke.

      I dont know about this. I'm not really a big fan of video game turned movies. So if it's good it'll be a surprise.

        ^ya
        they could create a beautifull movie 'bout this.
        but i highly doubt it will be. also i don't really like Michelle Rodriguez as samus.
        Samus is blonde to start with.
        but hell...
        the tomb raider movies weren't that bad.(mainly because angelina jolie was in it )

              Sorry folks, this is a confirmed April Fools joke. It even says so at the bottom of the article. For them to get Michelle Rodrigez to play Samus would be an insult to the series. Not only that, but Troma? The studio that brought us Toxic Avenger and Cannibal: The Musical? Yeah, I like their films (for a laff), but Metroid would most certainly be treated better than that.

                  lol hahahaha
                  every just checked out the title but didn't really read the article.
                  i just read it rapidly but i assumed it was true cuz a while back they said they'd make a metroid movie.
                  ....but they also said they would make a Eternal darkness movie(that would be sick as hell if it plays in diffrent timeperiods)
                  it was also said a couple of months ago universal was planning to make a zelda movie.
                  but my guess is that they all aren't created.
                  .....
                  ....
                  ...
                  ..
                  .
