After four published video games, the Saints Row series will now also be made into a film.
Saints Row 4 was the latest release for PC and console in 2013. Now several companies have
teamed up to produce a movie for the popular series. Among them is the German company
Koch, which not only owns the rights to the video game series but was also responsible for
the latest releases Saints Row 4 and Saints Row Gat out of Hell.
F. Gary Gray, who has already been involved behind the scenes in action movies like The
Italian Job, is also supposed to be part of it. In addition, Gray is currently working for Men in
Black international and also had a hand in Straight outta Compton - so he doesn't have a lack
of qualification. Greg Russo was hired as a screenwriter and has worked among others on
Resident Evil and Mortal Combat.
So in fact they have found quite skilled people, but nevertheless many fans will be skeptical
about the filming of Saints Row, after all, filmed video games have very often disappointed
the high expectations of the fans.
