The Just Cause movie is called Just Cause: Scorpion Rising.
Bryan Edward Hill (Broken Trinity: Pandora's Box, 7 Days From Hell) is rewriting the script originally penned by Michael Ross, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As previously revealed, the movie focuses on the origin of The Scorpion, aka Rico Rodriguez.
Producers Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner are yet to take the film to movie studios or financiers. Last year the pair said they hoped the Just Cause flick would emulate Bond film Casino Royal.
Backing previous rumours, The Hollywood Reporter claims a third video game in the Just Cause series is in development. This was reportedly set for launch in 2012, but Avalanche told Eurogamer it will not release a game that year.
So, as of now, Avalanche hasn't confirmed Just Cause 3 as a project. The Swedish studio told Eurogamer it has two "huge" titles in development. Both are scheduled for 2013.
