Turok to have his day on the big screen

I have to say that I've been enjoying the onslaught of comic book characters that have made their way onto the silver screen lately. Big screen adaptations of video games, those I haven't been quite so fond of. Sure, Resident Evil and Silent Hill did well, but if you look at Super Mario Bros. Street Fighter and anything made by Ewe Boll, you'll understand where I'm coming from. So what's the best way you can ensure that a franchise can't be destroyed by making an appearance on the silver screen? Pick one that's already been ran into the ground.

MTV Movies is reporting that Adam Beach has signed on to play the lead role in a movie based on the Turok franchise. I don't know why, but I just can't bring myself to get excited about this film.

I guess I missed the fact that they recently created an animated movie (with Beach voicing the lead). Perhaps checking it out might give some clues as to what we can expect from the live action flick.
