A short video teaser for a Wing Commander Destiny game has been making the rounds lately, so this is a good opportunity to set the record straight. Even though it's been floating around since March 2009, there have been quite a few questions about it in just the last few weeks. It's purported to be a new XBox Wing Commander title due out in Fall 2010, but no such game exists. Aside from the heavy use of dropships from Aliens, it wouldn't be a bad fan movie were it not claiming to be straight from Electronic Arts. When the next Wing Commander game does get announced, the promotional trailers will be preceded by an official press release, and you'll be sure to hear about them all here!
Here's some more information on Mark Hamill's potential film deal mentioned over the weekend. The Wrap has collected some insight into the process that's been holding up a film adaptation of The Black Pearl, Mark's pet comic book project. Money to advance the movie seems available, but negotiations are still pending on some of the details. Check out the article here.
Considering that Hamill’s writing career encompasses some stories for “The Simpsons” comics, an introduction to a Batman anthology and one major comic miniseries, “The Black Pearl,” the clues made it clear that he’s talking about the latter, five-part story, which he’s said he wants to direct ever since its initial publication in 1996.
The story of “The Black Pearl,” Hamill told the New York Daily News at the time, is "a crime thriller, fairly raw in terms of violence … about tabloid journalism and sensationalism and all the things that thrillers come from."
