Anything like plans for when they are gonna start shooting, any possible actors they are looking into for the roles, I, like(I'm assuming) the rest of my fellow fans are dying for any lil tidbit or two of information that the staff is able to release. I'm turning blue and have passed out numerous times from holding my breath. [edit](not really but it sounded good when it came to mind)

Last I heard, they were waiting on a script, and looking at the movies Bruckheimer has in the pipe, it looks like we'll be seeing another pirates of the carribbean sequel before we see the Rifts movie onscreen, which is a shame.

Well Josh, get your Nitro pills ready cause, I wouldn't be shocked at all, there is movement, but unfortunately because of the parties involved until JB films makes their announcements about the project Palladium can't say much...

There's some news but Kevin doesn't know if he can say.

So have there ever been any updates on the Rifts movie beyond "Bruckheimer's decided to retain the option for a while longer"? Because there's been nary a peep of official news anywhere on the internet since the deal was first announced, or any followup on what the original creative team were supposed to be doing, or any indication that the Rifts movie is anything more than one of various nifty ideas that Bruckheimer's keeping for a rainy day.

The guy that wrote dodge ball (who's also been hired recently to do 3 other movies in production/direction roles) is writing the movie. It is actually the movie he dreamed to write and he's an old RP vet. He was writting away last I heard. Email him and show your support, he's actually a really nice guy.

Not at all. Keep in mind for example that it was George Lucas did such crap fests as HOWARD THE DUCK!

Don't judge a director or writter by one movie.

Look up on youtube 'The Nostalgia Critic Howard the Duck' to find my view of the movie.....and no, I'm not the Nostalgia critic, he's just saying everything I want to.

Da Nada, read the Comic and you realize that even thought the movie was a flop ... it was still great.

And I will NEVER apologize for loving it.

E-mail him?! how do you suggest we e-mail him? It never occured to me to do so or that it would 1) be made public (the e-mail that is) and 2) that an e-mail from some stranger would be anything but "delete" or "spam boxed".

Can you imagine how much fun it WILL be to be at the first ...probably 1201am showing of the Rifts Movie at your local theater... ALL the big fans will be there. I was at a NYC first showing of the latest Terminater movie and that was fun... but it wouldn't even hold a candle to Rifts fans.

I have reason to believe that Michael Bay is involved as well.

I most sincerely hope you are making a joke.

If that son-of-a-Bay touches or even comes near the RIFTS movie, KS should sue him for attempted vandalism of his property. A Bay-wrecked RIFTS movie would be worse than no RIFTS movie at all.

I would love to see Michael Bay involved with this project. We'll just wait and see what Rawson comes up with and who JB Films tags as the perfect director. I have faith, it will happen...

Comment: Never underestimate a player who likes options.
How can anybody, having seen his recent "movies", ever think Michael Bay could do a RIFTS movie justice? I mean come on, the man is all about SFX and sweaty cleavage. No real acting involved. His idea of a great movie would be two hours of exploding sweaty cleavages and running, screaming people with close-ups or slo-mo gymkata flips done by the lame "star". :badbad:

The RIFTS movie would require someone with actual talent who would want to see the film reflect the actual content of the books, instead of what the director thinks the books should have. That rules Bay out right there. He'd have a love interest for the main character with exposed cleavage within the first ten minutes.

*hires a hitman to remove the stain known as Michael Bay from any future equation*

Comment: Never underestimate a player who likes options.
I saw an interview with Rawsom Marshall Thurman, talking about his latest movie Mysteries Of Pittsburgh and the novel it was adapted from. Here's an outtake:

RMT: Thanks, I’m glad you liked it. I worked very hard on the script and I’m proud of the result. Scene to scene, sequence to sequence, the script differs widely from the novel. The script isn’t, nor will the resultant film be, the novel. They’re wholly different forms. I think what remains in the script is a trueness to the tone and theme of the novel which, in my opinion, is what the best adaptations are anyway.

Am I the only one who is now a little nervous about him writing for the RIFTS movie?

Nope not at all, I have faith, Rawson knows the material and he knows what direction JB Films want to go.

Comment: I love how people are quick to make demands, make spurious claims and then play the victim when you call them on it.

I saw an interview with Rawsom Marshall Thurman, talking about his latest movie Mysteries Of Pittsburgh and the novel it was adapted from. Here's an outtake:

RMT: Thanks, I’m glad you liked it. I worked very hard on the script and I’m proud of the result. Scene to scene, sequence to sequence, the script differs widely from the novel. The script isn’t, nor will the resultant film be, the novel. They’re wholly different forms. I think what remains in the script is a trueness to the tone and theme of the novel which, in my opinion, is what the best adaptations are anyway.

Am I the only one who is now a little nervous about him writing for the RIFTS movie?


Oh? So you want the rifts movie to be completely accurate to the game? Are you really sure about that?

Opening scene: a battle between a group of CS and a dragon and a few mages. The dragon breathes fire on the grunt as the grunt sudden stops "Wait, hold it. Dragon fire doesn't have that kind of range" "Sure it does, I have level 10 dragon hand to hand!" replies the dragon "But I have level 8 hand to hand commando, I should at least get an auto dodge!"

Do I need to continue :P

How can anybody, having seen his recent "movies", ever think Michael Bay could do a RIFTS movie justice? I mean come on, the man is all about SFX and sweaty cleavage. No real acting involved. His idea of a great movie would be two hours of exploding sweaty cleavages and running, screaming people with close-ups or slo-mo gymkata flips done by the lame "star". :badbad:

Sounds awesome! :p

The RIFTS movie would require someone with actual talent who would want to see the film reflect the actual content of the books, instead of what the director thinks the books should have. That rules Bay out right there. He'd have a love interest for the main character with exposed cleavage within the first ten minutes.

Just so long as it's not Erin Tarn. We don't need sweaty exposed old-lady cleavage.

Comment: "This seems like a good stopping point."
I just pray they don't D&D this chance. And why is it that all RPGs get such a horrible movie make over?
