According to a report on Vulture, Zombieland Director Ruben Fleischer is now at the helm of the Spy Hunter movie, a project which has been on and off more times than a freakin’ light switch.
Get ready to have the theme from Peter Gunn suck in your head all over again. Warner Bros. Games just divulged that the previously announced reboot of the car combat classic will be hitting shelves in portable form on October 30th. It’ll be playable at Gamescom for those attending. The rest of us can take a look at how the re-invented Interceptor handles in the video above.
Australian-born Hollywood scribe Stuart Beattie (G.I. Joe, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) loves video games. He even loves writing movie script versions of them.
Paul W.S. Anderson is best know for video game adaptations like Mortal Kombat and the Resident Evil franchise. He’s got his hands busy with the Death Race remake. He was going to do the Spy Hunter movie, but he’s no longer attached to that. So what’s on the slate for Anderson? He tells UK paper Sunday Sun:
Film site Latino Review are reporting that director Paul W.S. Anderson is no longer attached to the Spy Hunter movie. He was originally to direct and write the movie, but is now doing neither. While this won’t kill the movie outright, the fact it’s been kicking around for half a decade and is now without a writer/director doesn’t exactly bode well for the project.

The Chicago publisher responsible for Mortal Kombat, The Suffering and Stranglehold has issued a 160-page tome of production artwork from its stable of current franchises known as The Art of Midway: Before Pixels and Polygons. Featuring artwork from the above titles, as well as Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, Gauntlet, and Stranglehold, the unusual collection features some 200 pieces of artwork from Midway artists.
Maybe not exactly the collection you were hoping for—as an old, old man, I’d have preferred a more historical look at the company’s arcade games, titles like Spy Hunter, the original Mortal Kombat, and of course, the classic War Gods—but it’s still an interesting venture. I’d certainly like to see more publishers and developers publishing volumes of their artwork for fans, so kudos to Midway for giving their artists a chance to shine.
