Just Cause Film in Development

“Just Cause,” the 2006 video game from Avalanche Studios and Eidos Interactive, is moving forward with a big-screen adaptation, says Variety

Michael Ross is attached to write the screenplay for L+E Pictures. His credits include Turistas and the upcoming Jar City.

The original game told the story of Agent Rio Rodriguez, who, as part of a CIA black ops mission, needs to overthrow Salvador Mendoza, the fictional ruler of of an equally fictional tropic island, San Esperito, preventing Mendoza from launching his secret stockpile of WMDs.

A sequel to “Just Cause” was released earlier this year and quickly became a video game bestseller.
