News just in: Man in charge of film says film will not be terrible. More to follow.

He's not even in charge of the film. Or even related to production of the film! He's just a guy who saw some interviews ABOUT the film.

This just in: clueless blog commenter didn't even read the article.(The comments are by Duncan Jones. The man in charge of the film is Sam Raimi.)

I honestly had the same thoughts about this article, but the editors wanted someone to write this up so I volunteered since I usually do the movie stuff anyway. Jones seems like he might just be trying to self-promote, honestly. If you go and read the original article he actually comments on it with his twitter account and I just can't help but feel turned off by the air he has. Maybe it's more the projection of the article and the way the author suggest that because Jones is a gamer and director he should get to direct this film over Raimi. Having a gamer for a director is not going to make this film successful - It's about getting a director who is actually a good director, pairing him up with a good script writer, and getting the two of them to find the story in the game. I'm actually a bit concerned the film will just be a weird fantasy set war film, since Rodat's big claim to fame is Saving Private Ryan. *shrug*
