THQ's executive vice president of core games Danny Bilson has said that the publisher intends to do a Saints Row film.
Not content with that, he hopes that it will launch on the same day as the third Saints Row game, which doesn't have a date yet but should be out before March 2012.
Speaking in a conference call this week recorded by GameSpot, Bilson said a "major filmmaker" will be involved.
At the beginning of last year, rapper 50 Cent said he was optioning Saints Row for a movie. Fiddy had his own game Blood on the Sand published through THQ.
THQ has been pushing its "transmedia" efforts recently, having signed a deal to produce a two-hour TV movie based on Red Faction, which could turn into a TV series if successful.
