DreamWorks Buys Microsoft's 'Crimson Skies' Game to Turn Into a Movie18 Jul, 2001 By: Hive News
DreamWorks Pictures has acquired the rights to the PC game Crimson Skies from Microsoft to develop into a live-action feature film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The game is set around the economic depression in 1930s United States and centers on a group of sinister air pirates who threaten the sky and ground. The lead character in the game -- air adventurer Nathan Zachary -- attempts to save the day by warding off the bad guys. The game features 24 missions, including stealing government fighter planes and rescuing damsels in distress.
No producers are yet attached to Crimson, and DreamWorks is looking for a writer to adapt the project.
