Temple Run Based Film Announced For Production

/ 3 years ago


We’ve all heard of adaptations of films into games and quite often the other way around, think of the Saw films or even the Harry Potter series, but the common denominator with these is that they have a story line, characters, something for the audience to follow and ultimately root for in the end. A recent news scoop has reached the surface that the hit phone game Temple Run is going to have its own film made, and directed that none other than the producer of the popular Harry Potter David Heyman.

Heyman has the power to do what he wants with the film in simplistic terms, meaning that he’ll have a hard job of turning a monotonous game into a deep and meaningful storyline with twists and turns that’ll keep you entertained for more than a few minutes.

It should be noted that the adaptation of the hit game will be that, an adaptation. If a game as repetitive as Temple Run was put directly into film form you can be sure that the box office wouldn’t be exactly huge.

Heyman has said that the film will revolve around an explorer that steals an idol from a temple and then has to escape demons, which follows the lore/backstory of Temple Run without (hopefully) being an hour and a half production of a man running down a bad Great Wall of China with an occasional trampoline assisted jump. From this it could potentially be a great film but only time will tell.
