Hey movie junkies! Some of you may not know this but Shadowrun is a role-playing game set in a near-future fictional universe in which cybernetics, magic and fantasy creatures co-exist. It combines genres of cyberpunk, urban fantasy and crime, with occasional elements of conspiracy fiction, horror, and detective fiction.
The original game has spawned a franchise with a card game, two miniature-based wargames, multiple video games, a series of novels, and music. From its inception, it has remained among the most popular role-playing games. Now this table top nasement cramming game is to be made into a full length feature by an independent film company named "Metranome" films.
- FNR - So what made you decided to create a motion picture out of an old school RPG and why hasnt anyone done it befiore?
- Metranome - Thats funny that you say that. Some have tried and failed. there was a well known attempt at a "Promo" video in the 90's that sank RPG's back into the stone age with its failed cinematogarpahy and wooden acting. We thought it was about time to really liven it up. The big thing now is Comic Book movies and so we said...why not? nobody seems to bother with RPG's and many of them are much cooler than comics.
- FNR - Who was the leader in your venture?
MATRANOME - Well I would of course like to say myself...being the director. but we did an interview with Jasion Hardy, around christmas time 2010. He had become the new line producer of "Shadowrun" and he really gave us insight into what the movie, granted...any movie about "Shadowrun' should include. So he kind of sparked the fire that had ended up being what we have now. Look for it soon. The production was Hella-hectic but we got the talent and the money and really pushed the envelope.
