Brett Ratner is looking to step into the shoes of Uwe Boll, but hopefully without the complete lack of talent. Ratnerís branding company is responsible for the Guitar Hero III ads that aired during the American Idol finale, and heís interested in continuing the melding of interactive entertainment with the movie business.
Ratner has told Variety that he will start making movies based on Activision games. Iím seriously hoping he doesnít plan on doing a Guitar Hero film, unless itís a Spinal Tap style movie. Actually, after watching what he did to X-Men I wouldnít want Ratner anywhere near something like that. "The games business is much more exciting than the movie business right now," Ratner said. "I will be doing movies that come from videogames."
He hasnít said what game(s) he plans to start with, but while most of expect Call of Duty with Chris Tucker weíll likely get Rush Hour 4: Tony Hawkís Underground.
