Looks like hulking action fodder isn’t the only thing movie producers are gleaning out of the games industry. Long-time classic puzzle-adventure series Myst looks to be making its way into theaters, courtesy of Roserock Films and Gran Via Productions. The production houses have reportedly teamed up with Mysteria Film Group’s Adrian Vanderbosch and Isaac Testerman to obtain the rights. While no production details are known at this point, the producers state that the mythology outlined the novels will be the script’s jumping off point.
“Our aim with this project is to stretch the genres it operates within, much like the source material did,” Vanderbosch said. “It is such an innovative property and the best service we can do to it is to maintain that spirit. By utilizing the novels as our primary source, we have the opportunity to offer audiences the essence of Myst without being limited only to the famous island of the first game.”
