City of Heroes movie!

In some incredibly cool news about that 'other' MMO that WoW players can't be bothered with:

"Transformers producer Tom DeSanto has secured the film rights to NCsoft and Cryptic Studio's video game City of Heroes. The plan is to adapt the massively multiplayer online role-playing game into a live-action feature and then transition it to television in some form, the trade paper reported. The movie revolves around a group of superheroes who live in Paragon City and must team up in order to fight an invasion of aliens known as the Rikti. "

For those that were in the beta - the Rikti were introduced as a giant event at the end of the beta period. Testing is over - time to drop aliens on your head! Next to Lord Recluse, the Rikti are the main high level mobs. I can only assume that the Freedom Phalanx (big NPCs) will be the heroes of the movie (Statesman, Positron, Manticore, Synapse, & Sister Psyche) I assume the 'lower level' npcs will make appearances but you never know, because there are so many of them (Ms Liberty, Back Alley Brawler (I hate that guy) Numina, Swan, Mynx, Infernal, (hate that guy too) etc etc.)

Having played both games for a couple of years (I want to go back!) I look forward to this movie. Americans love the spandex. Oh by the way, that's my villian in the picture - I'm the giant guy with no neck. Kotaku and
