District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp was recently asked on Twitter if he was interested in making a Metroid movie, and he responded “yes”. This is especially interesting as Blomkamp was once working on a fifth Alien film, and Alien as we know has greatly influenced Metroid.
It seems that the cry for a Metroid film is growing louder and louder. Mere weeks ago, the stars of the Mario movie said they want Metroid to be next, and Brie Larson has long volunteered to play Samus in it if a movie is ever made. With Nintendo having said recently that more movies based on their games will come, there’s never been a greater chance to see our bounty hunter on the silver screen.
