With Saints Row: The Third only days away on Nintendo Switch, Deadline is reporting that a film version of the series is also on the way.

Straight Outta Compton director, F. Gary Gray is pegged to direct with Greg Russo (who is also writing the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot movie) handling the script. The film is said to be a co-production between Koch Media, Occupant Entertainment and Fenix Studios

Developed by Deep Silver Volition, Saints Row follows the Third Street Saints in their rise to notoriety with each new entry getting increasingly over-the-top.

I'm hoping the movie leans heavily into the first two games and ignores the more zany direction the series took with the last two entries.
