American Indian actor Adam Beach, who voiced the animated movie Turok: Son of Stone, says a live action movie is in the works...

"We just finished the animated movie and now we're going into the feature film movie [which should lens] hopefully in a couple years. We're about to set up meetings to develop a script and put it out there," Beach enthused. "I'll have to beef up, and be a good guy, and save the world!"


Turok, of course, has his origins in comic books but is no doubt much more widely known today as the star of several popular video games. Although many claim that the franchise has recently “nuked the fridge,” 1997’s “Turok: Dinosaur Hunter” is often credited as being one of the earliest blockbuster first person shooters for the N64, helping to usher in a whole new era in gaming.

For Beach, however, what’s important about the character isn’t so much his recent (somewhat varied) history, but his status as one of the only high-profile Native American supers.

Beach, who is of Saulteaux decent, calls the opportunity to play a Native America superhero “a dream.”

“He’s the first Native American superhero that I ever looked up to,” he said. “He basically [comes from] a family where they’re protecting our universe from an alternate universe that wants to take it over. He uses his wits, and his might, and his special bow and arrow to take over the world.”

I think this movie could be awesome. The issue here is budget and of course a script.

It's going to be heavily CG, but considering people's love of dinosaurs, this could be a sweet looking film. It could also be a B-movie to end all B-movies, but that's not necessarily bad either.

It's possible this could be fun but my favourite part of the article was the “nuked the fridge,” bit.
I wonder if it will catch on.

First time I've seen it but I think the guy is putting a Indy 4 spin on the "jumping the shark" phrase.

Yeah thats what I found most interesting about the article too. "nuked the fridge" I wonder also if that will replace jump the shark. I guess if enough people start using it, slowly people will begin asking where it came from and then laugh when they are told.
