You're missing a category: I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath. :P

While I think it could make a truly epic, memorable groundbreaking movie (like the Matrix) if done right, I think it might be a bit too far "out there" for the big studios to actually proceed with. I hope I'm wrong.

with all the junk emerging from hollywood these days and some of the crap sequels being released i cant say for sure if it is coming or not. Hulk 2 are you mad!!! i walked out on the first one! i have been reading comics for the better part of 20 years and lets me say that movie didn't do hulk justice but as i digress.....
in my opinion if a movie is being done first i see alot of hype. how many of you out there have seen or read halo 3 articles? probably alot of you.i have already heard of a fantastic 4 articles and the hype of spiderman 3 has been going for years. rifts.....silence... in this case silence is not good news. I REALLY HOPE IM WRONG ON THIS! :-(

Yes.

Remember, movies are not made overnight.

Take, for example, how long it took Lord of the Rings to reach the silver screen after it was first announced.

Comment: Arrrrgggghhhh!
I would be inclined to say "no", but its alrady been pointed out that Epics with lots of special effects tend to take a long time to hit theaters.
Assuming Palladium is still in business I'd say around 3-5 years.
So my final answer is "Yes".

I think Disney is gonna see how the Live-action Transformers movie is gonna work out before they work on Rifts. It's directed by Micheal Bay(Pearl Harbour), so the arial combat should be pretty cool. Steven Spielberg is also listed in the production.

I voted "no..." but that could just be my pre-Valentine's Day cynicism doing the talking.

I want to see it, to be sure, but unless some big news (GOOD news) is released I just don't hold out a lot of hope for it.

Oh well... here's hoping I'll eventually be proved wrong.

I think it will be made, but then again I'm biased.

My reason being as many times as Bruckheimer/Disney have had to duke this out with Kevin, his agent and the attorneys they've had so many opportunities to walk away its not funny, but they come back every time and agree to the desired terms and conditions.

I think Bruckheimer wants this to bad to let it go. The man is very smart and knows a good thing when he sees it.

Well, you're definitely more "in the know" than I'll likely ever be... so that at least makes me feel a little bit better about the whole thing. :)

Well, if Disney does eventually decide they don't want it, perhaps the rights to the movie could be sold to whomever made the 300... A Rifts movie done the way the 300 was done would be absolutely incredible. Best part is, they wouldn't need Frank Miller to do a Graphic Novel first, they could use Machinations of Doom for inspiration.

:D --GJ.

I believe it will be, but that it's going to take some significant time. It's right up JB's alley, but he has a lot on his plate, so we all have to sit and patiently wait.

Comment: I game... Therefore I am...
The books may take decades to arrive but I have a feeling we will see the Rifts movie even sooner. The recent tragedy at PB only makes me think we will see it even sooner. The concept of Rifts would translate well to the big screen imho and it would help draw people into the game which can only help PB in the long run.

I am hopeful.

I think that by the time this movie gets made, I'll be too old to care. (and probably too old to see it) Like the one thread said, The Rifts will come before the movie does.

Man i've heard about rifts the movie for a few years now and i dont think if theyve been streching it this far. Movies no matter how great dont take decades to make. in one seen you got a nice little boy whos 15 next scene hes a thirtie year old. I think a rumor got started and got out of hand. Also palladium is still having a little trouble and a movie is probaly the last thing on thier mind since they cost hundreds of thousands

Ummmm, Palladium isn't the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer is. It isn't a rumor its an option. It hasn't been decades, just four years in development...

-A decade is 10 years, not 4. It will be another 6 years before it has been a decade since the announcement.
-Palladium can keep concentrating on books because they will not be making the movie. Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney hold the option to make the movie, and it is up to them when, or if, this movie is produced.

also if dysney doesnt do the movie why dont they get someone else doing it? they dont have to stay with dysney and come on since when was this type of movie went for dysney it will have killing, chop shops and swearing. I have never seen a dysney movie with chop shops or gore in a dysney movie. it will never make it with dysney. they should use a different place and director. I have also heard that that director has turned down hundreds of possible rift movies because their not what he wants. Nothing is going to be what he wants because of all the gore and violance that comes with this movie

Thats the point of Disney paying for the option. Palladium agrees not to let some one else make a movie besides Disney. When the option expires Palladium is free to find another movie company.

As for Disney's style, Brockheimer did Arthur (with all the killing, cursing, and scantally clad Genevieve. 'Nuff said

a) Disney's Rifts will be PG-13 aka Pirates. Which is fine. Nobody is going to spend $200M on a Rated R movie.

b) They do not have a director. Bruckheimer is a producer whose favorite directors are Gore Verbinski and Michael Bay. Bay will not do Rifts 'cuz he isn't a sci-fi fan and just did Transformers. Gore wants to some dramas and non-blockbusters for a while.

Boy your getting some bizarre rumors. There have been only three treatments, Bruckheimer has approval of the script before any director would ever see it. They've talked to Ridley Scott among others for the directors chair and none of them have seen any of the treatments as far as I've heard. They've been working with David Franzoni of Gladiator fame for the script and just haven't hit on it yet.

I am sorry about saying that a decade was five years but i did hear that whoever is making the movie has put down some good ideas.

I think that if they did make a movie it should include all the different characters. Or even the defilers.

At open house one of panels mentioned some of the things that were floating around for possible scripts. They would have been funny if they weren't so sad.

I was thinking maybe the republicans vs archie vs the splugorth. That way you get very rifts ideas and not things that may appear to take off of others like the old ones or confusing cyber knights with jedi.

Another thing they should do is ask players for their old stories. Tweek them up a bit and take out the bad stuff. Because my friend tells me about his characters all the time and any of them would make awesome movies.

I will still say yes. It will just take awhile. Like several people have said, years. Many years, unfortinitly.

what they really need to do is turn it into a half hour show every day. that way they cant go wrong one episode sucks oh well we still have next episode to watch. If thats not good they should show how the world became rifts like the glitter boy wars and the nuke bombs alnog with the xicites

That would be baaaaad :nh:



I'd live with it for a scene of a flying fortresses chasing after a sky king and a later scene of hoplites and other american sold triax power armor storming Chi-Town under heavy Samas barrage.

Im betting a story line along the line of the CS's first war with the federation of magic. There will be a back story of how we got here (sunrises over 2098 NYC: huge gleaming sky scrapers, flying cars, the whole bit. James Earl Jones voice over: "It was the Golden Age of Man..."), the chaos times, the dark ages, the rise of the CS and the FoM (with an allusion to the vanguard), then the split between the two, the war, a CS trooper learns to tolerate D-Bees, a mage saves a dying CS soldier, popcorn consumed by the ton, end credits, standing ovation.

Then... Rifts II: Atlantis and Rifts III: Chaos Earth (the obligatory pre-quil) go into simultaneous production.
:D

There is too much Rifts to put into a 2 hour movie. It would have to be an incredibly long series spanning 10 seasons. I'd do it in a twilight zone kind of way, where each show (About 54 mins) has different characters but are linked by only the plot and not physically.

Fact is, there's just too much to put into a single movie. You'd need sequals, and even with 6 hours of sequels you'd be eliminating many many aspects of Rifts. You'd need many many seasons.

Also, Rifts could not be this CG anime crap. I find that art rther generic. I would accept an animated series of Rifts in the style of, say, Heavy Metal or Titan AE. or maybe even by the mastermind himself, Kevin!

Uh....what? Because he was in Firefly and Firefly got cancelled?

I looked over his list and the only sci-fi series he's done was 2 episodes of Justice League Unlimited and Firefly/Serenity. How does that make him the kiss of death?

Because Drive got canceled, and it was obviously Sci-Fi! ;)
