I personally don't think there should for a few reasons:

 

  1. Movies based on video games are almost guaranteed to suck. Super Mario Bros., Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and all the resident evil movies are perfect examples of this.
  2. What is done in the game all depends on the player. Yeah, most quests follow a story that every player has to follow, and they have no choice but to say what's programmed for everyone to say. But for outside quests, what's done in the game totally depends on what the person playing the game chooses.

Yeah, I really don't think a live-action RuneScape movie should ever be made, what do you guys think?

Maybe if the game had an actual budget...?

Well, there are thousands and thousands of people who pay for membership monthly. I'm sure Jagex could afford making the movie if they wanted to.

 

But it really wouldn't work since what someone does in the game depends on the person playing, and there are trillions of things to do in the game.

Could be a movie about a certain quest line. Doesn't necessarily have to be about the daily life of the player.

Yeah that could work. A lot of quests have a good story which CAN make for a good movie.

Eh that depends on the direction of movie itself. As stated above, there are some quest lines that could be turned into good movies.. If done correctly of course.

Lol have the actual JMods as the actors!



Runescape: While Guthix Sleep, featuring Mod Mark as the player character! In theaters starting April 1st.

Or you have a Power to the Players poll in-game to let people choose which JMod should be the actor, that couldn't possibly go wrong.

I think TIF should band together and make an in-game film though, just because..

I'm referring to official theatrical movies.

 

Independent ones don't count.

This is a project you can perhaps ask the staff if they want to do for the upcoming runefest.

There's usually at least 1-3 tip.iters who go to runefest, staff included. Have a site contest to write a short script. Ask the community who is attending if they'll re-enact it (poorly). Record using a potato phone or camera. Edit crappily in Windows Movie Maker. Submit to Jmods post-runefest.

Enjoy the karma fame groans and eye-rolls.

But Camelot in RuneScape is based on the English legend, I'm sure these movies have no relevance to the one in RuneScape, but are instead based on camelot in England.

The English legend is based on RuneScape. Trust me we studied it in school. This is how I found out about RS and started playing the game. How could I not play a game powerful enough to start real life legends!

Wait, I have a better idea, how about an animated series? I'm sure that could work even better.
