Warfare 2 guy's Frost

Although I think that UNCHARTED 2 is probably the closest I've come to feeling like I was playing a movie, the blockbuster MODERN WARFARE 2 is also an undeniably cinematic experience.

So it seems like a natural transition for Keith Arem, that game's "talent director", to slide from pushing polygons to shooting a live-action movie. (Arem was responsible for gathering and directing WARFARE 2's cast members 50 Cent, Barry Pepper, Kevin McKidd, Keith David, Billy Murray and Lance Henriksen.)

Arem will now make his feature debut on an action-thriller called FROST ROAD, which he also wrote and is simultaneously developing as a graphic novel. The story follows a "man who awakens from a car accident to discover he is one of few survivors in the aftermath of a mysterious outbreak that's struck a small coast town on the East Coast. Somehow immune to the contagion, he tries to save the remaining survivors as he struggles to prevent the deadly wave from spreading across the planet."

If MW2 is any indication, the action should be a bit sicker than, say, THE HAPPENING.

Extra Tidbit: MODERN WARFARE 2 made over half a billion dollars in its first few days of release... and the series has since reportedly generated 3 billion. Those zeroes and ones can add up royally.

Okay, 3 Billion Dollars is the entire FRANCHISE not just MW2!! LMAO that would make James Cameron pretty jealous! Also, its hard to say wether this guys movie will be anywhere near as action packed as MW2, if MW2 was live action film, that movie would have cost more than any James Cameron Movie.
Although I agree MW2 was pretty cinematic, you are right that Uncharted 2 pretty much set the bench mark.
It wasnt just about the set pieces, or the cut scenes, its these subtle things that occure

It wasnt just about the set pieces, or the cut scenes, its these subtle things that occure DURING gameplay. You get a tremendous amount of character development just by simply playing the game and listening to characters talk about context sensitive thing. its a bit hard to explain but damn was it a clever thing to do and many games will now be doing it in the future, it really moved the entire medium ahead.

A) Variety claims the following: "Modern Warfare 2 has earned more money than any other videogame during its first week of release, collecting $550 million in worldwide sales during its first five days and $3 billion in sales to date."

B) If you think I can afford to do this "for a living", you're severely misinformed.

C) Relax.

Maybe it's just me but this sounds more like I Am Legend (which I am aware is not by any means an original as it was made a few different ways) without the people infected becoming mutant thingies. Unless they do...

Definite agreement about Uncharted 2/Modern Warfare 2.

But yeah you're right - a potential The Happening that won't suck nuts.

This sounds almost identical to the premise of Eli Roth's new movie.
