Tameem Antoniades, Ninja Theory’s boss has revealed that a CG movie for Enslaved was pitched to Hollywood studios.
But during an interview with D’Toid, Antoniades said that the idea was rejected by all of them.
“We were serious about it. We went to all the big studios in Hollywood and pitched the idea,” he said.
“They have no idea of what real time means. They just care about how good it looks.”
“Then, the fact that you say you can do this for cheap has no interest to studios whatsoever because they don’t want to do it for cheap. They want Pixar and the other higher end [studios] to do it for 100 million dollars or 60 million dollars.” he explained.
Despite the fact that there wont be a movie, Enslaved it self is not so far from being one, the guy who wrote 28 Days Later, Alex Garland, penned the game’s story, while while Lord of the Rings’ Andy Serkis voices the main character Monkey.
Enslaved is set to be released on October 8 in Europe and on October 5 in NA.
