A Just Cause movie, which we got wind of a year ago, now has a screenwriter and another producing partner, signaling that we’re a step closer to an action-movie video game adapted into a video game action movie.
Michael Ross, whose credits include the 2006 horror flick “Turistas,” has been brought aboard to write the script. Joining in the production is L+E Pictures, helmed by Eric Eisner, the son of former Disney chief Michael Eisner. Adrian Askarieh, of Prime Universe Productions, is still aboard. Askarieh has ties to Eidos games, as the producer involved with the Hitman movie and the ongoing Kane & Lynch adaptation.
The Eisner/Askarieh alliance is working to develop the film before shopping for a studio to start filming it.
