The Official Spore Movie Thread

As confirmed by Kotaku, EA has landed a deal on the Spore movie with 20th Century Fox and the director of "Ice Age." Lucy Bradshaw will co-produce the film. This is just a confirmation of a picture deal and it may or may not mean the movie will actually make it to official production, seeing as EA has other IPs getting the games-to-film treatment in queue.

Buuuuuuuuuuuut...

Assuming we'll be getting a Spore film, I already sent a inquiry to one of Spore's head designers. But if there is more interest from them, we might as well ask ourselves. What user-created Gaming Steve creature deserves a stand-in role in the movie? It'd be nice to have some forum representation. But I wouldn't just lobby any of my own creatures. (as much as I'd like to) I think Hydro's Naucean, LadyM's Mallen, and Oviraptor's Vvukkrauur deserve our prime consideration, especially since Maxis was so kind to recreate them before the Creature Editor was released.

Now I'm only thinking they could give us a stand-in role for our creatures. Understandably, they are writing the story, they will make the characters suited for the leading roles. So a 15-second glimpse is all we ask.

I think LadyM and Hydro could give their thoughts, since they have been in contact with Maxis in the flesh before.

A Spore movie. I think I'm going to pee myself...

I'm not sure if it's from fear or from happiness.

It has a lot of potential, but then, so did Spore. I just hope they don't over-hype it, like they did with Spore.

Seeing the kind of charm and humor Maxis puts into their games, I can see this as being a family film. They've been that way for ages, I don't know why everyone is so clueless to it.

Everyone should come to expect the same. If you carefully examine how Maxis adventures play out in Galactic Adventures, you can expect the same with this movie. It will be a charming film and nothing too dark or serious.

If there are fan-made creature cameo's then the Naucean is a given.  It was the first.  It is the greatest.

Granted, I would be able to die happy with even a second long glimpse of my Kratair somewhere in a distant crowd shot, but there are for more deserving.  Like the Somberon for one (I'll say it if Gec won't).

Of course, this is all still in the realm of distant possibilities, and history should have taught us that no good comes from overhyping something that's half a decade away.

Well, some good, but not enough.  Not enough.

As long as we are dealing with hypotheticals, I'm going to represent my old stomping grounds of Sporesite.com (R.I.P.) and suggest Petreak's Mentripod.  He's a member on this site too even though he hasn't posted in ages, and was included with Hydro, LadyM, and Ovi.  (Seeing as I was Third in Command at sporesite, I'd nominate my Gocket as an alternate.)

As for creatures from GS, I would suggest the Sombrerons, Torpals, and Wexxians.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I would rather they just worked on a new expansion, but a Spore movie might also be enjoyable.

Oh and yes, I'm back ;)

The only real cameos to be made will be the micro-celebrities from the spore groups, which is a shame. Some lesser-known species/creations, combined with their descriptions, would make great additions. The trouble is, without that micro-celebritism, nobody is going to know of them, nor get their references.

As much as I'd like them to be confirmed as part of the cast, it really pains me to say that inserting the Wexxians into the film will be kinda out of place, since there are no mechanical creatures in the game itself, except for the Grox. :(

Sure, they can make them look mechanical, but in reality, they'll still be just biologicals wearing robot-looking costumes. :-\

Though, "honorary" Wexxians would most probably be able to fit into the movie. Then again, the only reason there are honorary Wexxians is because of the mechanical Wexxians. :(

A wexxian wouldn't be a stretch at all if you ask me.  If those of you who have Galactic Adventures will remember, the very first adventure has you being ordered around by a robot.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I can't see any way a move centered around spore would work. The only thing not user-made is the Grox! Other then that, it would really be "spore", just a weird "science fiction" show.

Epic Awesome!
No, get a label gun and shoot them with labels like "Bad guy #1" "Bad guy #2" Slightly badder guy" "Guy that thinks he is bad but is really good and just confused"

Hopefully a joke.

Dude, seriously, it's starting to equate to spam...

Anyways, all I can say is that this will no doubt be without story, or at least a compelling story.

But I can.

Don't be stupid.

Anyways, I think Maxis has an idea what sort of story they can make. If they can make a story for Spore Hero, then they can do the same for a movie.
