It's been a while since we heard anything about this one, but Deadline Hollywood have reported
that producers Hunt Lowry and Mark Johnson (Chronicles of Narnia) have patterned with Myst's rights holders to develop the successful adventure game series into a feature film.
"Our aim with this project is to stretch the genres it operated within, much like the source material did," Vanderbosch said. "It is such an innovative property and by utilizing the novels as our primary resource, we have the opportunity to offer audiences the essence of MYST without being limited only to the famous island of the first game. Our focus has always been on creating an entirely new visual experience driven by engaging characters and an epic narrative."
We're not sure what to make of this one yet, as there's currently no script or even a writer attached. Regardless, it will be interesting to see what they put together for this one.
1993's Myst does remain as "the best selling adventure game of all time", not that that is all that significant anymore given the fading of the genre over the last decade though.
Those who played the more recent iPhone port of Myst may have noticed that although the mythology of the game hold up ok, much of it's execution is a little cheesy by today's standards. Is there enough substance there for an entire film (or more)?
