Video games based on Hollywood blockbusters have long been the pet hate of the industry, and it seems things aren't going to change anytime soon if todays reports are anything to by.
According to Variety, Legendary Pictures are said to be keen to develop games based on existing and original properties, which include 300, Superman Returns, Watchmen and The Dark Knight. Their first release is said to be The Lost Patrol based on their supernatural thriller due in 2010.
Although a movie studios foray into the video game industry may seem daunting, the Californian based studio has come well armed having recruited former EA executive Kathy Vrabeck to run the division.
Legendary Pictures are currently adapting both Gears of War and World of Warcraft for the big screen, with Len Wiseman (Underworld, Die Hard 4.0) said to be directing the former.
