Straight Outta Compton, Fast 8 director making Saints Row movie

Gat's out the bag.

F. Gary Gray will direct a big screen version of Saints Row, Deadline has reported.

The director is no stranger to films about naughty folk up to no good, having previously helmed both gangsta rap biopic Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious, AKA the one with Charlize Theron.

Gray recently finished filming Men In Black: International, the upcoming reboot due to release in June.

Greg Russo (no relation to the Russo brothers) is penning the script. He's a busy chap in the world of video game to movie conversions, and is also currently writing a Mortal Kombat film and the untitled Resident Evil movie reboot.

There's no word yet on what the Saints Row film will be about, or if any of the game's most famous characters will feature.

Back in the world of games, its currently unclear when we'll next see Saints Row return. THQ Nordic snapped up Saints Row owner Koch Media for €121m just over a year ago - and at the time, a new Saints Row game was touted as in development.
