It looks like the producer of Independence Day and Eight Legged Freaks is planning to produce a Mech Warrior movie with creative input by Jordan Weisman, the creator of Mech Warrior. I believe upon seeing a Mech Warrior game in action Steven Spielberg was heard to say "Someone should make a movie out of this" or something similar. Maybe he can be brought in to direct this obvious epic in the making. Ah ha ha!
