Metroid Movie (early 2000's)

Was killed by the flop that was 1993's Super Mario Bros.



This is no surprise, of course, but it sounds like it might have been for the best:

Quote:
Nintendo was definitely discouraged by it, but felt that with John [Woo] they would be in better hands. The challenge for us was that it felt that the biggest lesson Nintendo learned from Mario was to hold onto their rights even tighter, limiting collaboration when it came to translating Metroid to the big screen. Our entire development time was spent exploring the Metroid world, and what we could - and couldn't - do within it...

Things started to go south when we tried to dig into the character a bit more. As you know, any film needs a deeper story arc than what is told in the game, where we learn about the characters and their world. What are they doing when they are not fighting? What is their daily existence and relationships? What are Samus's aspirations, history, and fears? Nintendo appreciated the questions, but had never thought about them before, and ultimately didn't have a lot of answers. In the end, they felt uncomfortable with our team being the ones to propose those answers.
I actually like that they pulled the plug on this one. No reason to tarnish the legacy of an iconic character to try and make a buck.
