MTV recently interviewed Rob Pardo, the EVP of Game Design at Blizzard about a possible StarCraft film. Here’s what he has to say:
“We’ve always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It’s just tricky to find the right partners. We probably could have made a [‘StarCraft’] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it’s really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That’s always been the challenge for us. I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, ‘You want to make a ‘StarCraft’ movie?’ we’d probably sign that.”
Its no big surprise that he named someone like James Cameron since he’s freaking brilliant in the sci-fi genre. If Cameron made a StarCraft movie, it’d definitely bring it into the main stream and get even more people into the SC games.
