After Super Mario And Borderlands, Jack Black Reveals Which Video Games Need Movie Adaptations


Jack Black is known for many terrific contributions to pop culture – from his unforgettable comedic performances to his excellent musicianship as part of Tenacious D – but one special area of focus for him in recent years (whether purposeful or not) has been in the realm of video game movies. He’s played Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon in the last two game-centric Jumanji sequels, voiced Bowser in last year’s blockbuster hit The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and soon he will be featured as part of the talented cast of Borderlands. At this point, Black has established credibility in the realm, and he definitely has ideas about big screen projects that he’d like to see in the future.

Total Film recently spoke with Jack Black regarding his work on the upcoming Borderlands movie, and he shared clear thoughts regarding video games that should get the adaptation treatment at some point. He made note of the cinematic potential of one studio’s library in particular, and specifically noted two of their titles:

I can’t believe they haven’t already started making a movie of any of the Rockstar Games – Grand Theft Auto, but especially Red Dead Redemption. Those things are already like movies, you know? I guess that’s the thing. Some video games are already halfway there to telling those kind of stories, and there are some movies that are like video games.
