Sony in talks to do Getaway movie

Exciting mysterious writer on board.

Sony is in talks to produce a movie version of the latest instalment in the Getaway series.

That's according to Katie Ellwood, who wrote the screenplays for the first two games. She's now working on Getaway PS3, which is due out at some point.

Speaking to DenofGeek, Ellwood revealed a big screen adaptation is in the works - and said this isn't the first time Sony has considered such a thing.

"Sony did work on and develop a screenplay for the first Getaway," she confirmed. "However, by the time it was ready, we were releasing the sequel and the story had changed.

"We are certainly talking to production houses about a movie for the third game in the Getaway series," Ellwood continued.

"The story and game script for this one is very exciting, as is the writer we have on board. I'm afraid I can't give any further information, other than to say: watch this space."

We would, but we're already watching the space the actual game is supposed to appear in. Meanwhile, there are plenty of screenshots over in the gallery. All right three.
