Batman prequel series heading to TV

Batman-1989

Fox has secured a deal for a prequel television series centered on a younger James Gordon.  Gordon, who goes on to become Gotham’s commissioner and Batman’s ally, served as a detective in Gotham’s police force before working his way to the top of a corrupt justice system in a decaying city.  The television series will focus on his time as a detective and is said to include some of the iconic villains from the Batman universe, however it will not feature the Caped Crusader himself (though this doesn’t mean that one Bruce Wayne won’t make an appearance in the show in one form or another).

The show is being produced by creator of The Mentalist Bruno Heller with a full series order from Fox.  No word yet on casting or when the show is set to premiere, but we do have a title:  Gotham.

Just Add Water hoping to remake Metal Gear Solid

Developer of the recent Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath remake as well as upcoming New ‘N’ Tasty Just Add Water is hoping to capitalize on Hideo Kojima’s desire to see the first game remade in Fox Engine.  The developer has some past experience working with a highly regarded IP, Oddworld, and hopes that their respect for the existing property and the fact that they’re “huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material” will land them the gig.

Whether or not an HD remake of the first MGS happens, the idea is certainly exciting.  Do you think Just Add Water is up to the challenge?  If not, what studio would be your dream choice to re-envision Metal Gear Solid?
