Rumour: Nispel F.E.A.R. 3 promo casting reveals plot details

Thursday, 4th February 2010 12:40 GMT By Patrick Garratt


An anonymous source has supplied VG247 details of an January LA casting call for a Marcus Nispel-directed F.E.A.R. 3 web promo, which apparently reveals significant plot and character details from the unannounced game.

There are MASSIVE SPOILERS below the link.

The auditions for the viral took place on January 14 and 15, as you can see in the image below. For those that don’t know, the director, Marcus Nispel is the man behind the recent Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes.

The work is for a web-only promo for the game.

Paxton Fettel is to make a major comeback, from the look of this. The info included in the call describes him as a “malevolent genius” who is “most excited about the delivery of the latest member of the family.”

Fettel is Alma’s second son, and he’s narrating the promo.

Yep, that’s right: Alma’s pregnant again.

The game’s iconic girl-woman, Alma, will feature in the video, and is “consumed with revenge.”

“With her latest pregnancy and delivery, she may be ready to unleash all of her powers in a final bid for the destruction of mankind.”

“Final bid,” eh?

And, of course, there’s Point Man, Alma’s first son. He’s the “perfect killing machine” and “unbeatable in combat”.

You’ll find the full text in the image.

F.E.A.R. has been strongly rumoured but never confirmed. Late last year a Monolith artist dropped the name Project Hades on his CV, to swiftly replace the document with the giant question mark you see today.

Developer Monolith was seen to be hiring for a “next-generation console title” in June last year, but the identity of the project was never confirmed.

French site JeuxActu rumoured F.E.A.R. 3 for a 2010 release late last year, but the story appears to have now been removed.

Warner Bros. could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.

    Sounds like the intro to a saga of Dragon Ball.

    To be honest if you’ve played through FEAR 2 and the Reborn DLC, the only real spoiler here is the return of the Point Man.

    I’ve edited the “boss” bit out.

    I don’t think that this is F.E.A.R.3, rather it is a movie.
    As Patrick say Marcus Nispel is film director and the line – Production Co.:NU Boyana is about an American-Bulgarian film studio here in Sofia, Bulgaria as the last line say. It is owned by the California-based studio – Nu Image.
    So I think that this promo is for a film, but I am not sure because if I am not wrong F.E.A.R.2 was published by Warner and Monolith is owned by Warner. Very interesting.

    Hopefully They Mixed Up The Action & Horror This Time..

    FEAR = Boring & Repetitive
    FEAR 2 = Horror Then Action, Horror Then Action
    FEAR 3 = Action & Horror Mixed Together?

    LOVED the first one.. Creepiest game I have ever played. Fear 2, however, left me pretty damn disappointed…. so I will pass on 3 because I don’t think they will get it right again

    You Loved The Boring Repetitiveness Of The 1st FEAR?.. Really?

    Every Level Seemed To Be The Exact Same As Every Other, I Couldn’t Wait For The Game To End It Got So Boring, I Sold It Not 20 Minutes After Beating It.

    I agree with Mushroom. FEAR 2 was a huge disappointment, there were no creepy moments in it became run of the mill FPS. Especially with the Formula they used Horror then action and you can easily tell.

    Some stuff was done well in the first game like some build-ups to events were decently presented, but overall -just like Crysis-, it was all visuals and nothing else.
