Saints Row, Metro films possible

The Saints Row series is quickly turning into theater of the absurd. But could it make it into actual theaters? Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz says he's considering films for Koch's properties, which includes both Saints Row and Metro under Deep Silver.

"[Those movies are] not out of the question," Kundratitz told VentureBeat. "If a company can deliver that transmedia experience, we are probably one of the few that have the ambition and ability to deliver that. At the same time, I have to be honest, we have not been able to deliver that [transmedia experience] yet. But it's one of my long-term strategic goals to do so."

The company has already worked on film distribution in Europe, partnering with Hollywood to release Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, Margin Call, and Moon in Germany. It also sold film rights to Dead Island to Lionsgate in 2011, for a film still in development. These films might never happen, of course, but we can hold out hope to see the Third Street Saints as directed by Uwe Boll.
