McGee's Alice To Hit Silver Screen?
10:24 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Canoe's JAM! Movies section has noted an interesting development regarding video games and movies. They report that Dimension Films, noted company behind cinema gems such as Scream, have signed an agreement with game developer American McGee.

For those unfamiliar with McGee, he helped develop both Quake and Doom while in the employ of id Software. His latest title, Alice, is currently on the brink of release for the Mac fromAspyr Media. Running off the Quake III engine, Alice is noted for its extremely warped and fantastic environment, which aptly conveys the feeling of Wonderland gone insane.

It is this title that is currently slated to be the first game adaptation to movie fromat by Dimension Films. Wes Craven, a name that should be familiar to horror fans everywhere, will be the one directing the film.

It's been interesting to see the slow transition of video games into movies. We've seen movie-to-game adaptations since the beginning, but now we're seeing movies such as Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider getting ready to hit the big screen, with Alice now on the way. Hopefully this will lead to a maturation of the game industry and give it the credence that it deserves. However, the demand for more 'cinematic' games will continue to create longer production times and ever-larger development budgets as well.
