Legendary Pictures making videogames

Based on own films and original IP.

Hollywood film-maker Legendary Pictures has decided to internally develop videogames based on both original and existing properties, starting with a tie-in for supernatural thriller The Lost Patrol in 2010.

Kathy Vrabeck, former EA and Activision bigwig, will run the show, according to Variety. There are no specific details yet, but she's keen to churn out content for mobiles and casual internet portals, apparently.

Legendary Pictures is currently developing big-screen adaptations of World of Warcraft and Gears of War. There's not much known about the former, but Gears of War screenwriter Chris Morgan recently told everybody how good The Rock would be as lead character Marcus Fenix.

Len Wiseman (Die Hard 4.0) will direct the Gears of War film, while Uwe Boll came very close to directing World of Warcraft - well, he asked and Blizzard said no.
