Yes but the difference with those low budget, yet successful, films and this? Those were live action this wont be, you can keep to a lower budget with live action but the cgi is going to have to be good in this and that'll cost.

Default Ultramarines – A WARHAMMER 40,000 movie

ULTRAMARINES is a 70-minute sci-fi thriller that will use CGI and state-of-the-art animation production techniques. Games Workshop is delighted to be working with UK-based production company Codex Pictures, who have the momentous task of bringing the Warhammer 40,000 universe to the screen.

The director is Martyn Pick, whose credits include the 2009 film The Age of Stupid, on which he was animation director; London 2012, the promotional film commissioned by Film London and the London Development Agency which was premiered at the Beijing Olympics; the 2001 US Budweiser NBA commercial; and the celebrated BBC promotional trailers for the Euro 2004 soccer tournament. Martyn was chosen to direct Ultramarines for his renowned and highly distinctive ability to fuse live action and animation and the fluid, rich painterly style of his film-making.

The screenplay has been written by someone who needs no introduction to Warhammer 40,000 fans – best-selling author Dan Abnett. Dan has penned more than 25 books for Games Workshop’s Black Library, with total sales in excess of 1.2 million copies. He also works regularly for 2000 AD, Marvel Comics and DC Comics and has recently seen publication of the first of three novels for HarperCollins' new sci-fi, fantasy and horror imprint, Angry Robot.

ULTRAMARINES, a sci-fi thriller employing CGI and state-of-the-art production techniques, is being produced by Codex Pictures in association with Good Story Productions Ltd. The Canadian co-producer is POP6 Studios.

There is already a thread on this.
Threads merged.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Ok first off...Why Space Marines especially why Ultramarines? They really should have just based it on Storm of Iron or some other equally sick 40k book and personally I dont much care for Dan Abnett, Graham Mcneill is by far a better author. On a more positive note, the fact its being done by a UK company gives me -some- confidence, means no cheesy American accents or style hopefully.

Shacklock, the reason why it is ultramarines is because ultramarines are popular and are the most well known chapter, they are effectively the main chapter of space marines in 40k. Them and the Imperial Fists are the major chapters.

its ultramarines because the smufs are the "standard" of what a space marine is.

personally, i like Abnett being the writer of the movie, it may not be McNeill (?) for those that wish it was - but at least GW has some1 that we all know doing it.

Really this isnt a project that alot of people should be gettin uber excited about. Dont get me wrong i would LOVE to see a good 40k film as much as the rest of you but a CG laden film + low budget = FAIL. proper cg is NOT cheap. and what enemy will they be fighting? if they pick tyranids it will prolly look alot like starship troopers 3. and that aint pretty. ANY of the alien races of 40k are gonna need alot of money to make them look good so im kinda dreading this project. i guess we can hope for the best tho. me ill be wincing and covering my ears when this one drops in anticipation for all the grumbling and yelling that comes afterword.

In reply to Sil3nc3. I honestly dont think there will be much of any complaining when it turns out to be frickin CheeseballSaurusRex. Everybody knows it wont be a high budget film, but we're just excited its finaly happening. There have been so many failed 40k movie projects that most of us would rather be mildly entertained by a sub-par film than be let down by yet again the absance of a 40k film all together. I dont care how cheesy it is, Ultra Marines for the win!

Sorry just that due to Hollywood dominating the movie making industry with its usually weak films, the 'standard' american accents sound like an acting accent to me and I generally cant take them seriously or get immersed xD

Still regardless of anything else itll be nice to see some 40k on a screen.

sounds like it could be good but i have a feeling GW will sellout to a wider audience by dumbing down the fluff and gothic feel. and i swear if a marine pulls a snappy one liner or gets a spunky love intrest i may brake the disk.
and yes it would have to be the ultramarines , they are what 40k is stapled around

black Templars Utopa Crusade of about 12000pts
for when you gota shoop da whoop
