Straight-Up Films Responded

They say the Thief movie is now being made by another studio. That would explain why they weren't talking about it on their public pages, they were embarrassed. They didn't say which studio would be making it instead.

I don't think any of us had any optimism for a film adaptation after seeing what happened to LGS and the subsequent games. Or seeing what happens to film adaptations of video games in general (they tend to be awful).

How would you work the narrative of Thief into a film anyway? Are there such a thing as "stealth films"? From which perspective would you tell the story, Garrett's, or the guard's? Or would you transition between the two at different points of the film?

 

And yeah, most video game films did poorly, with the probable exception of Tomb Raider and the first Mortal Kombat movie.

I lived the Tomb Raider movies, old and new. I actually liked the movie based on Doom. I enjoyed Ratchet and Clank.

Making a Thief movie just doesn't sound like a wise idea, financially speaking. The Thief series never appealed to the mainstream like Doom, Mortal Kombat, or Tomb Raider. And it has been out of the mainstream for almost two decades, discounting Thief 4, which I understand did not sell well. With Thief 4, they failed to satisfy the purist, old Thief fans, and they didn't bring in a considerable modern audience either.

The Assassin's Creed film was pretty much regarded as not good, yet it still made some decent money and with 2 sequels planned, Thief does have a chance.
