Many games are getting movie adaptations and to be honest most of those movies can’t be compared to the game series. Is that because the movie directors change the original concept of the game or it has something to do with the crew and actors? Speaking of actors and crew, I’m sure that you know that there will be a Metrod movie based on the famous Metroid series from Nintedno. Question is who will play the main role?
I’m sure that all the gamers know the Metroid series that has been around from the time of the NES and was one of the most popular games of that time. You play as Samsus Aran, space bounty hunter and your task is to defend the galaxy from the Metrod. When it comes to game series, the biggest surprise was that Samsus Aran is actually a female. That way Samus became one of the most known female characters in the gaming industry. Now let’s focus on the upcoming Metroid movie for a second. Rumor has it that Uwe Boll is directing the movie but the biggest surprise is that Jessica Simpson might take the role of Samus Aran. How will 30-year-old actress and singer handle the role of Samus Aran it remains to be seen. Jessica has a several movies behind her and we remember her from The Dukes of Hazzard, Employee of the Month and The Love Guru. Also, Jessica stated in several television shows and she has released five studio albums.
Jessica might be perfect because she has some resemblance to the Samus Aran but Jessica has complained that the movie plot is too complex and that she would like to focus more on Samus’s love life. This is why good games get bad movies, because actors tend to put their own ideas and change the franchise that way. So far, it’s not confirmed that Jessica will play Samus Aran and it might be just another rumor. Anyhow, we’re hoping that the Metroid movie will be worthy of the game series.
