Although it made the highest-grossing video game adaptation ever, Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft didn’t make enough of a profit to warrant a sequel, though the lavish and opulent fantasy epic still enjoys a vocal and vocal fan base.
The filmmaker’s next feature will see him tackle sci-fi comics rogue soldierin what marks his first stint behind the camera since 2018 ironically muted Mutebut Jones’ social media followers can’t wait to see him tackle the inevitable terminator the reboot we all know will finally happen, thanks to a single tweet celebrating Hulu’s resounding success Prey.
After seeing three big budget reboots fail in the span of 10 years, what Jones is saying certainly has a lot of merit. Prey showed that a classic sci-fi franchise that’s been around for decades can be dusted off and dramatically reinvented, simply by stripping things back to basics and putting a talented creative team at the helm.
Even if the iconic saga born almost 40 years ago by James Cameron risks becoming the cinematic definition of madness, it is not difficult to imagine that positioning the masterminds behind Moon, Source codeand Warcraft at the forefront of another retread would generate a lot of buzz and excitement, especially if Prey was used as an example, as opposed to failures over $150 million Hi, Genisysand dark fate.
Of course, we’re just spitting here, and Jones didn’t even hint that he’d be interested, but it was clear his followers would latch on to the idea, because it’s the worst combination of talent. and title we’ve never heard.
