A number of years ago, there had been talk of a Metroid movie. Once Zide-Perry Productions' licence option expired, in 2004, director John Woo and the folks at Tiger Hill took over.
Brad Foxhoven, producer on the project and former president of Tiger Hill, told IGN:
“We believed there was a great opportunity for John Woo to bring his style of action into a Metroid film. Nintendo was quite supportive of the idea, as they were all fans of John's previous films."
