Take 2's State of Emergency is making the venture from PS2 game to the big screen, as New Line Cinema make it in to a blockbuster movie.


The company have already been responsible for The Lord of the Rings, and now want to bring the street riots and loot ridden State of Emergency to movie go-ers around the world.

The movie will be adapted from the Scottish developed State of Emergency game, by Warren Zide and Craig Perry, who were responsible for the American Pie films.

"To be able to create a franchisable action movie that appeals to young audiences based on a highly successful video game is something we’ve been looking for and State of Emergency is a perfect fit" said Zide.
