"Further fear comes from the fact that Mortal Kombat 2 and Hellbound co-writer Brent Friedman is working on the script, although one faint ray of hope is the disclosure that Steve De Jarnatt, the man behind Miracle Mile, is also on board.
Other details are thin on the ground at this early stage, but it looks like the movie will rather loosely follow the game's story of a shadowy government agency called the Spookhouse which investigates paranormal goings on. Producer Scott Faye promised that "the film will play like a supernatural Untouchables, retaining the spirit of the game while introducing new characters and a solid, three-act action-adventure story line". And in a fit of exuberant enthusiasm and/or sheer optimism he declared that "Nocturne .. has the potential to become the next Mummy franchise"."
Creative director Drew Haworth over at Terminal Reality has confirmed future Nocturne titles are being planned for release on the latest generation of console systems. Haworth explains, "Since PC and console game players are a different audience, we plan on reinventing the franchise with the console games. We'll create a brand-new game experience with a new 3-D camera perspective for a more action-oriented, Hollywood feel, while remaining true to the elements of the 'Nocturne' universe."
