Dimension Films has struck a deal with Threshold Entertainment to bring "Duke Nukem: The Movie," to life. The film will be produced by Larry Kasanoff ("Mortal Kombat I & II") and Threshold Entertainment. This will be an original licensed recreation of the Duke Nukem games designed by 3-D Realms.

In his first appearance on film, Duke plays himself as Earth's best bet against the alien onslaught. His Royal Highness is given the dangerous mission of traveling into deep space to intercept an alien ship heading straight for Earth.
Many Duke fans will be disappointed to hear that the movie is heading for a PG-13 rating but we can't have the studios loosing half their target audience, can we? Anyway they are assuring us that other great movies had a PG-13 rating like "The Mummy" and "Men in Black"

"I am thrilled to bring this extremely successful video game to the big screen," said Bob Weinstein, Threshold Entertainment co-chairman "This type of franchise, action film is the perfect fit for Dimension."

"I'm extremely excited to bring this best-selling video game character to life through Dimension," said Larry Kasanoff. "They are an ideal partner to grow the brand."

Duke Nukem is the number one PC game of all time and is the most popular video game franchise character with 100% name recognition to its target audience. Generating nearly $1 billion, Duke Nukem is among the most profitable video game properties. Let's see who gets to play the part...

Duke Nukem: The Movie

PG-13 movies are always half of what you expect.No time to kick ass and chew bubble gum (i'm all outa gum)Its always nice to see the tits and ass in duke games.IF it was rated R it would get more of an audience not PG-13.I don't wanna go see DukeNukem with a bunch of 14-15 year olds in the theatergoing cool look at his guns!

This movie is gonna suck ass, its not that I hate Duke Nukem games or anything, but what kind of movie can you get out of PG-13? I can tell you its not what Duke would have wanted. How can you have Duke Nukem anything without nudity, violence, and language?

It seems as though everyone is overly concerned about the PG-13 rating rather than the movie itself. A great movie can be made with ANY rating, including PG-13. What I'M concerned about is the fact that no great movies have yet been made from video games. The Final Fantasy movie may change my opinion, but until that time, and perhaps well afterward, I will hold the opinion that video game movies are some of the worst ever made.
