When Quantic... made an actual film
When the worlds of film and games smash together, fans of both mediums tend to come away emotionally mangled and, usually, with a greater degree of contempt for Uwe Boll. Despite this, in 2004, Quantic Dream--complete with its motion capture studio--helped produce the 2004 film Immortal. This curious piece of cinema featured Linda Hardy, who won the title of Miss France in 1992, and Thomas Kretschmann, who went on to voice Professor Z in Cars 2. Lofty company indeed.
On the face of it, Immortal seems like the perfect film for Cage and Co to assist with; dystopian future, cyborgs, Egyptian gods returning to Earth etc, etc. But it’s the film’s production that sets it apart, being one of the first features to be shot entirely on a digital back lot, a more common practice now, and revolutionary at the time.
