Heavenly Sword movie set to come out in 2012?

So I was just browsing through imdb.com and checking out some voice actors for some games and came across Anna Torv who is known for the show Fringe and she was the voice actress and motion cap for Nariko (star of Heavenly Sword for PS3) It came to my attention that she is currently filming Heavenly Sword and it is set to be released in 2012!

Here is the link to her IMDB page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1396022/

I find it strange that they decided to make a movie out of it. I am excited for it though. Anyone else think this could be good?

Let's hope they get all French people to play the characters.
 
"Haye daud, dunt be saud."
 
"My name is Naman Jayden" *Spelled Norman*
 
"JAYS-HUUUN"

Wierd, at first I thought it was one of those movies in "development," which means it doesn't exist. But saying it's in production is something. Six million is a pretty dinky budget though, didn't the game cost north of fifteen million?

If Andy Serkis is onboard, it might not actually be completely terrible.

To be honest I just want another game.

The three elements in the cast are nice. Can turn up something decent, for a change.

Seeing that Heavenly Sword isn't exatly the hottest title to adopt right now, does anyone think Hollywood actually research the game industry for neat ideas these days, rather than just for cheap popularity bumps? ... in that case, give us Singularity: The movie.

I actually think Heavenly Sword could be cool if it's treated the right way.

It's animated, I'm guessing straight to DVD or something. First movie made by this director too.
