Comic-Con panel to look at the future of video game film adaptations

San Diego Comic-Con will host a panel entitled "Video Games to Movies: Is The Golden Age Upon Us?" that will look at the future of video game movie adaptations, and will feature many game developers weighing in on the topic. Could the days of shit game-movies be coming to an end?

Deadline reports that the panel will take place Thursday, July 18, at the Hilton Bayfront’s Indigo Ballroom. The discussion will be moderated by Wall Street Journal staffer Ben Fritz, who writes about all things entertainment.

Contributing to the discussion are producer Adrian Askarieh, who is currently adapting Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Kane & Lynch and for the big screen, Tim Miller of Blur Studio, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-li screenwriter Justin Marks, vice president of EA Entertainment Pat O'Brien - who is currently working on the Need for Speed movie, and Mortal Kombat Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen, among others.

What do you make of the panel and its speakers? Is it a topic that needs remedied soon, or will the string of bad game adaptations never die?

San Diego Comic-Con takes place between July 17-21.

Thanks Polygon.
