Just Cause film will be based on Just Cause 3, confirms director

The director behind the planned Just Cause film has confirmed the events of the movie will be based on the upcoming Just Cause 3.

Adrian Askarieh, who was responsible for the recent Hitman: Agent 47, purchased the movie rights to Just Cause back in 2009. 

Speaking during a chat with IGN, Askarieh spoke highly of the upcoming Just Cause 3, which hits PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One later this year.

In terms of action, I think Just Cause has just as much right to be called an action movie as The Fast and Furious,” he said. “They’re both outlandish. Just Cause 3 has a cool story. I’ve always loved the story of the Scorpion, because I haven’t seen a movie about a guy you send in to tear people apart from within.”

Right now Just Cause has yet to attract a filming date, as the director wishes to see how well Agent 47 performs at the box office.
