The people’s gamer talks

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spoke with Yahoo! Games about the film version of “Spy Hunter” as well as the game “Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run.”

If you don’t know what “Spy Hunter” is, it was a racing/action game that had the player use the ultimate superagent sports car that was pimped out with all kinds of villain-fighting weapons. Tire slashers, machine guns, oil slick — it had it all. And if that wasn’t enough, the car could transform into other vehicles, like a speedboat.

Apparently the script is finally done and the movie could be released in July 2007.

The last time we (well, some of us) saw The Rock, he was playing the role of Sarge in the movie version of “Doom.” I’ll say this about “Doom” — it wasn’t that bad until it started doing the first-person stuff. Then there was none chance.

“Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run” will feature on-foot action sequences along wth the driving, so players will be able to lay some smack down on enemies. The Rock went all out for both the game AND movie, putting in voicework and mocap sessions in addition to lending his likeness.

The game is expected to be released in September.
