Just Cause: Scorpio Rising is the name of the movie of the game currently in the pipeline, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, featuring the origins of how Rico Rodriguez came to be the zipline-flinging liberator of the people that he is in the Just Cause series. Hence the 'Rising' bit in the title.
Bryan Edward Hill (Broken Trinity: Pandora's Box, 7 Days From Hell) is supposedly rewriting the script, which had been originally scribbled by Michael Ross. However, the movie's producers Adrian Askarieh and Eric Eisner still have to take the movie to financiers or studios before shooting on the project can even begin, so it'll be a long way off yet.
The same report also claims that Just Cause 3 could be in development too, despite developer Avalanche Studios saying that it won't be releasing a game in 2012. Perhaps it'll be coming in 2013 alongside the so-called 'Project Mamba' then? And maybe it could be a next-generation title? Who flippin' knows? All we know is that we want Steven Seagal in the lead movie role... maybe.
