IGN – New York City’s Chinatown will be the setting for one of the most important movies of the year, but the cast and crew are also bringing a whole new dimension to the franchise.
The New York Post has reported that a movie based on the beloved game of the same name will be heading to theaters this summer, and it will be called The Big Bad.
The film will be based on a game called Chinatown, which was created in the early 90s and is widely considered one of Nintendo’s best selling games of all time.
The game is a real-time strategy game with a very dark, gritty storyline, and has spawned several sequels.
The plot of the film follows the lives of a gang of criminals, who have all been caught up in the chaos of the war in New York.
The BigBad is expected to star John Cusack, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Emma Stone, and more.
The news comes just days after rumors about a movie titled The Big Red One broke, with multiple people claiming to be close to filming.
The New York Daily News even said that the movie will be directed by the same director who helmed the critically acclaimed Warcraft movie.
While it’s unclear how big a role the game would play in the film, it seems like a fitting place to begin with a movie that’s already getting some love in Hollywood.
A new trailer has been released for the film.
