UPDATED: Ultramarines – Warhammer 40000 film heading our way

UPDATE: Now there is a director attached – more here.

Games Workshop fans rejoice. Ultramarines are heading our way.

The moment fans have been waiting for is finally here… for the first time, the Warhammer 40,000 universe will be realised in a feature-length movie on DVD.

Ultramarines is a 70-minute sci-fi thriller that will use CGI and state-of-the-art animation production techniques. Games Workshop is delighted to be working with UK-based production company Codex Pictures, who have the momentous task of bringing the Warhammer 40,000 universe to the screen.

UPDATE: Fans of the franchise may recall Games Workshop’s similar attempt in the film field several years ago with Bloodquest, a fully animated feature film starring the Blood Angels Chapter. Unfortunately, Bloodquest was “put on hold” and the production company disbanded before work was ever resumed on the project.

Check out the official site. The video clip below is nothing to do with this film as far as I am aware.

      Ah, that’s right. I remember reading something about that a while back. Not sure if this is the same one. I will have a look and see what I can find out.

    Apparently some fans in German made there own fanfilm based on 40k but Games Workshop banned it’s release due to some German copyright law. I think GW also made a very short live action film (well clip) for Gamesday yonks ago. I have a feeling if your really search good’old YouTube you can find it.

    Also just to score some more geek-points, the picture you put up is of a ‘Black Templar’ Space Marine, not an ‘Ultramarine’ Space Marine.

      Cheers Maff 77 – I know it wasn’t an Ultramarine, I just really like the picture. 100 geek points to you by the way :)
