SEGA and New Line Cinema unite

This is either good or bad news, I’m not sure. SEGA and New Line Cinema announced a deal to make games based on movies centered around the “His Dark Materials” book trilogy from author Phillip Pullman. So, we have a GAME based on a MOVIE based on a BOOK. I’m worried — that’s a trifecta of possible gaming pain. Of course, if Sega pulls it off, it’ll be quite a feat.

The first film is “The Golden Compass,” which is going to star Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig (if you don’t know, he’s the new Bond), and the game is slated to be released at the same time, which is November of 2007.
