Movies and TV projects based on Xbox franchises (current: Fallout, Halo, Minecraft)

My kids never heard of Spyro but love Skylanders and would love to watch a show based on them.

I wonder how Netflix will handle Horizon. Creating tons of CGI dinos will cost a fortune. Hopefully, the CGI will look better than a lot of recent tv shows. Both Halo and a couple of the Marvel Disney+ shows had questionable CGI moments.

I couldn’t get into Horizon Zero Dawn, but I do like the high-level concept of its world. So, I’m interested in the show.

I do. Producer says it is.

I’m not sure exactly if it was a hit or not but the Mortal Kombat movie did well for getting an 83 million worldwide box office considering it came out during the pandemic.

It also benefitted on streaming services like HBO Max as well.

Here are my dream ones:

  • Fable from Taika Waititi (obviously starring Rhys Darby, probably as a mad king or something)
  • Psychonauts cartoon from Alex Hirsch (creator of Gravity Falls)
  • Perfect Dark from Derek Kolstad (John Wick writer) and Paul Greenglass (Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum)

Like the video games on which it is based, the “Fallout” series is set in a world where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077.

MacLachlan is an iconic actor of the big and small screen, known for his work with David Lynch in projects like “Twin Peaks” (both the original and the Showtime revival), “Dune,” and “Blue Velvet.” On TV, he is also known for playing the mayor of Portland in the comedy series “Portlandia” and recently appeared in the Peacock limited series “Joe vs. Carole.” He is repped by UTA, Entertainment 360, and attorney Alan Wertheimer.

Mendes-Jones completed their training at the Identity School of Acting in 2021. They will next be seen in the Netflix feature “Havoc” alongside Tom Hardy, Forest Whitaker and Timothy Olyphant. They will also have a recurring role in Season 2 of “The Wheel of Time,” also at Amazon. They are repped by IAG.

Moten most recently appeared in the feature “Father Stu” opposite Mark Wahlberg and will next be seen in the Apple film “Emancipation” starring Will Smith. His past credits include shows like "Disjointe
