View Full Version : Rainbow Six: The Movie

I mean, why not? Many, many other clancy novels have made it to the big screen, and I think, if all the people that bought the game, in addition to the millions of die hard clancy fans went to watch the movie, it would not do too badly at all.

As far as fleshing out a storyline that would actually work in the movie, I couldn't care less. As long as they keep rest of the story in there.

Another problem I guess is that the most action sequences would only last a couple of seconds each...but the sniper sequences....the guns...that one where they shoot into the helicopter. The part where they chop up the backup rainbow team with ak's in an ambush.

Damn,I know why it isn't a movie now, but it would be sweet.

Anyways, to get what I'm saying you would have to have read the book. Of the 50% of you out there that are literate, have any of you read it?

I just finished it, and I really liked it /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I think a movie would do extremly well. But who would direct, produce and whatnot?

Imagine if John Woo directed it http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~unreal/modcentral/html/sarcblink.gif

Shoplifters will be beaten, stabbed, and stomped. Survivors will be prosecuted.

yeah, i read it a month or two ago and i obviously have a bad memory because i don't remember them shooting into a helicoptor or the backup team getting ambushed, what parts were these at? oh, and what was the name of the guy who lived in the castle? i was trying to make a map of that scene where one team had to go in, get the hostages, and get to the helicopter (i'd probably have to wait for 3.0, but i could do all the geometry beforehand). i ended up chucking it though because i could not get the place to look anywhere close to what i wanted...yeah, that book was good, though not as good as some of his others. think i'll some more of his over the summer...

In the castle mission Johnston (or was it Weber) shot into the helicopter right into the right eye of one of the hostage takers.

In the hospital mission terrorists hid in trucks and sawed down team one.

The book is very very good. Only one screwup is the entire book.

I didn't like the ending. The last mission in the jungle was boring like hell

I read on www.planetrainbowsix.com (http://www.planetrainbowsix.com) several months back that a movie was 'in the works' but that was it....as people may not know if a movie studio buys right to a book or script or whatever they have all the power to produce it, or sit on in forever, despite how good it may be, unless someone else buys the right from the studio, so I wouldnt hold yer breath.

As for directors I think Michael Mann (Heat, the insider) would be good, he can be very realistic... also John Frankenheimer (Ronin, Reindeer Games) is good, though he alsways has to have car chases..and I havent read the book..

Rainbow Six was a good novel, but I think he sort of let it go at the end, it sort of fell apart at the end.

Even though rainbow six was definitely not Clancy's best work, I think it's a novel which wouldn't lose much in the hollywood conversion, as many of his other novels have.

When I said "screwup" I meant on Clancy's behalf btw=)

Personally I'd prefer a Red Storm Rising movie, but I'd doubt it's be very popular with the russians.

on the other hand, they ARE making "The Sum of All Fears", you know, the one where Denver get's nuked.

Damn You!

I just started reading The Sum Of All Fears yesterday and you completely ****ed me over...

Thanks a bunch.

but if you played any of the R6 games it's mentioned in there (and I'd expect since most of you are realism nuts, you would have played it at least once)

I like Delta Force 2 myself... /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
