Ben Affleck May Direct Game-Based Movie

When you think of gaming, do you think of Ben Affleck? You might soon. The Hollywood director/actor is in talks to make a movie called "Line of Sight" that takes a huge cue from the world of gaming. The proposed flick isn't based on a specific game, but it centers on an elite commando squad transporting cargo and is told from a point-of-view like a first-person shooter game. Another game connection: It's being written by Peter O’Brien, the guy who wrote the game Halo: Reach.

If everything goes perfectly, Affleck will both direct and star in the movie and it will be produced by Joel Silver's production house at Warner Bros.

While the project is in an early stage, the attachment of Affleck may be enough for this interesting-sounding film to actually be made. I can only hope that the entire movie takes place in the first-person view familiar to gamers. Imagine a full movie like the only worthwhile 10 minutes of the movie Doom.  Whether it can work and not seem gimmicky for a full 90-120 minute flick remains to be seen. After all, a lot of the fun of the first-person-shooter is the shooting part. Worst-case-scenario: It feels like watching someone else play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
