Elder Scrolls Film Rumoured
by GL News
The lust for game-to-film conversions doesn’t appear to be waning, with Bethesda’s classic RPG series now rumoured to be heading for the silver screen. Yes, according to VGTribune, ZeniMax Media – parent company to Bethesda have filed a trademark for the term Oblivion, classed under ‘entertainment services, providing motion picture theatrical films in the field of fantasy games’.
So, are they merely protecting their IP or genuinely planning a saga of epic Elder Scrolls films? With the in-game hero being player created, conjuring a strong, marketable character(s) to carry such a weighty franchise will be a big ask, let alone paying proper tribute to a title which still rides high among ‘top anything ever’ lists.
Ordinarily, by now, we’d be throwing things at our PC monitors as we do whenever the latest asinine game-to-film rumour surfaces. This one, however, appears to have stayed our hands. Instead, at GLHQ, most of us are quietly contemplating how good it could be if they, by some miracle, got it right. It could be like Lord of the Rings but without the endless walking and two dozen endings. Imagine seeing the Oblivion gates opening up on the big screen, the searing beauty of the Imperial City, or the snow-dusted charm of Bruma’s sleepy town…it has the potential to leave Rivendell and the rest a blubbering, ugly mess by comparison. It likely won’t happen, but if it did…scorchio.
