They should make a Psychonauts movie

Tim Burton Should direct a psychonauts movie claymation style and have Tim Schafer write the screenplay. And if the movie does good maybe they'll make a psychonauts 2. Wishful thinking yes but it would be sick.

Hmm...that would certainly be a unique video game movie, which I guess is appropriate for a unique game. I think I would probably watch that movie....but I've been burned so many times. Damn you Uwe Boll, damn you.

Id much rather they make the sequal alluded to at the end of the first game then release a movie.

Yep that does sound pretty swell. Tell you what I wanna be a movie director and if nobody still hasn't done this movie in about 8 years time ill do it. Although by that time Psychonauts will probably be just wring on a bathroom wall and I'll be lying in a gutter somewhere.

Hopefully if Brutal Legend does well, maybe we will get that sequal. I don't think a sequal could sell worse in sales. If Beyond Good and Evil can get a sequal maybe one day we will get psychonauts 2.

Actually, he should just have Henry Selick do the movie, he's the real talent behind the stop motion movies Burton gets credit for.

They definitely should make that movie, Psychonauts was fucking awesome.

Man, why haven't movie studios thought of this? They've been wasting their time with franchises like Resident Evil and Prince of Persia that actually have financial viability. Go after the one that flopped! How could it go wrong?

As cool as Psychonauts was, this will never fucking happen. There's maybe a slight chance for a sequel if Brutal Legend and Beyond Good & Evil 2 sell well, since that would give Tim Schafer some credit and set a precedent for a sequel to a beloved game that sold nothing. But a movie has no chance in hell.
