While EA's Dante's Inferno video game allows you to explore the darkest depths of hell, the animated feature goes darker and deeper still.
During the Dante's Inferno panel earlier today at the San Diego Comic-Con, director Vic Cook explained just how deep Dante would travel in the animated feature.
"You're gonna love it. We've got bodies flying around. We've got Dante literally being shoved up a monster's butt."
Perhaps I just heard that wrong. I figured they would take extensive liberties with the original work, but there's no way they would get that extensive, would they? Let's see what the game's executive producer, Jonathan Knight has to say.
"In the original game script we wrote that Cerberus was going to shove Dante up his arse... it was a crazy, crazy scene. We just couldn't do it in the game for a lot of reasons. To have that moment that was in the game script that was cut from the game to show up in the animated feature is just really cool."
...okay then. Might want to keep that in mind when you see the Dante's Inferno DVD on shelves sometime in 2010... you know... f you're into that sort of thing.
Aside from the monster anal, Cook also hinted at a scene set in the Lust level, directed by anime director Dong Woo, that was absolutely mind-blowing, over the top... "I can't even talk about it because there are children here." So don't worry about spoilers. The worst is yet to come!
