Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Animal Crossing Horror Film in The Works

I can't believe this is real. It just sounds too stupid to be real.

But an Animal Crossing horror movie from Timur Bekmambetov, the director of Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Here's Don't Peak, the short film by Julian Terry of which this movie is supposed to be a full-length version of.

How could Nintendo approve this? This sounds like it'll make the live-action Super Mario Bros. movie look like a faithful adaptation in comparison. It's like Blumhouse's butchering of Fantasy Island and The Banana Splits all over again. -_-

Isabelle running around with an axe. Not a fan of horror films and definitely not this.



Stuff of nightmares..... in more ways than one.



They probably won't actually use Animal Crossing in the movie.
It's just going to be some generic non-existent game about maintaining a house.



"This is a non-profit film, Nightlight Motion Pictures is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo or Animal Crossing."

I just watched the short film and I liked it, but I don't think all that full movie stuff will come to fruition, unless they remove Animal Crossing from it. Otherwise, Nintendo will just stop it.



I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).

Also...

Please, feel free to correct my English.

 Timur Bekmambetov is doing the adaption and he's a pretty major person in the industry so it probably will get made, but most likely without any connection to Animal Crossing.



No way this becomes a full movie. Nintendo's legal team will absolutely annihilate this like Goku vs. Ray Palatine.



I'm a horror geek, so I'm down for it.



seems like a concept that could work given what already exists 



I just can't see it....
