Well, now here is a comic/video game hero I didn't expect to see any time soon. Adam Beach revealed to MTV that he plans to star in a live-action Turok movie. This year, the character landed his own animated film, Turok: Son of Stone, which Beach provided the voice for. Though it seems to have garnered little attention, it hasn't daunted Beach from wanting to tackle the character again.

"We just finished the animated movie and now we're going into the feature film movie [which should lens] hopefully in a couple years. We're about to set up meetings to develop a script and put it out there," Beach said.

"I'll have to beef up, and be a good guy, and save the world!" And a big part of the appeal is his ethnic background. "He's the first Native American superhero that I ever looked up to. He basically [comes from] a family where they're protecting our universe from an alternate universe that wants to take it over. He uses his wits, and his might, and his special bow and arrow to take over the world."

Video game movies rarely do well, even if they do have their origins in comic books, and it isn't clear which Turok they are going with. However, a Native American hunting dinosaurs and an evil cyborg is just so crazy, it might work -- and as I have always liked Beach, I will root for his dream project. Sound off, Turok fans. A terrible idea or something you are dying to see on the big screen?
