This can't be real. If it was, we would have known/found out about it in the last two years -_- unfortunately, it's no where near as popular as FNAF (which is actually getting a movie I might add) therefore, cannot be real :-\ sorry to be a Lunair in this situation.

It's confirmed; Quentin Tarantino had some tough requests for changes in the script but once I approved them he was good to go.

If you were reading between the lines, I actually did hint at it a while back, along with the actor who'll be playing the docs:

Hm I'm still a bit skeptical but I guess we'll see. I just hope it isn't complete crap like some other movie adaptations.

You're like a fish that jumps out of the water of its own free will, eats a fisherman's bait before he could even ready his fishing rod and then crawls right into his basket, waiting patiently to be cooked. No challenge at all.

The bait was out though.

If Tarantino made a movie version of TtM, who knows whether he'd introduce a few more characters just so they could die in over-the-top gory ways.

No, I'm pretty sure you're referring to The Flying Marlin :P

Is it fine that the topic is like a couple of months old now? There's this warning that it's giving me in scary red...

To The Moon could look cool as an animated film; it would give it the same throwback kind of feel as the RPG-Maker graphics of the game. I think the most obvious trouble is getting someone to actually animate it, and to compound the problem, the length of the game as it stands.
There are 52 scenes (think along lines of grouped dialogue and animations) in To The Moon!:
1. Intro + Meet the Doctors
2. "Boulder"
3. John's House / Lily and the Kids
4. Playing Detective
5. I thought you liked role-playing?
6. Abandoned Lighthouse
7. Into the Memory
8. Meeting Johnny
9. Empty House full of Folded Paper
10. She won't be alone anymore
11. "For River" / River's Wish
12. The Incomplete House
13. Good News at a Get-Together / Pickled Olives
14. Anya
15. Rabbits
16. Confession (It's just a part of it)
17. Bookstore / Acting
18. The Wedding
19. The Village Idiot / Take Me Anywhere
20. Diagnosis (I'd rather not)
21. Movie Night
22. Asking River Out
23. "I know what I need..."
24. Childhood Home
25. Soccer Ball (aka football)
26. Transferral
27. Nothing has changed?
28. To The Moon - The Movie
29. The NASA Representative
30. Provocation Montage
31. Calling it a Night
32. Contemplation
33. Lily's Story
34. Hidden Medical Records
35. Roadkill Fetch-quest
36. Painkillers / Excuses, Excuses
37. Destabilization
38. Joey
39. What's mine is yours too
40. The Carnival
41. Stargazer / Coffee Addiction
42. Constellation / Billions of Lighthouses
43. Eva's Plan / Plants vs. Zombievas
44. Changes
45. Everything's Alright
46. Exploring NASA / It's not here
47. Another "River"
48. "To The Moon"
49. Stopping Traffic
50. Launch
51. (Credits)
52. Cliffside(hanger)

Out of all of these, exactly two can be removed without completely compromising the story: 5, the fake role-playing sequence (which doesn't work in the context of a movie anyhow), and scene 36 with the painkillers, to encourage people to play the game to find out instead (I suppose it is a bit mean, but the game should still have things that the movie doesn't).

The scenes are somewhat flexible; they can technically be combined or further separated because each new scene just marks a notable transition either in setting, topic, or both. For example, scene 13 could be categorized as two scenes, one with the actual memory and one with Neil getting the memento from John. And 41 and 42 could be categorized as a single scene instead, but I think there should be some separation between the doctors conversing and the discovery that River appears at the carnival.

that's a standard forum feature, if you have something useful to contribute there is no problem with digging up old threads :)
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...

If ya give me a couple years, I might be able to make an animated, movie-ish version of this game. I don't think I wanna leave out any scenes though (like the painkillers one). There are some non-gamers out there that will never know of/play TtM therefore, never get the pain killers part. My movie may be long but it'll be in parts. May even be a couple hours long overall (due to no game play feature) which is a proper length of a movie anyway. The hardest part would be to find voice actors (if I decide to make it a voiced or if it's possible).

Don't bite off more than you can chew ^^
Try making an 1 minute animated short and you will see what I mean.
Creating an multiple hour long animated movie is a major task, even for an experienced animator that settles on low quality.

Yeah, unfortunately we don't have a huge team of animators, musicians, and tech people like a big animation company would. For one person, all of the character animations, effects, backgrounds, camera movement, editing, audio syncing, etc. mount up to something which approaches impossible. But maybe...it could still be done with a smallish team, with backgrounds commissioned and an orchestra hired. I think it would require a ton of planning in any case!

Well as time goes on, I could ask for help from other animated experts and such across the internet. If a solo game designer can do it (Yandere Dev) than surely I can do it as well.

I imagine the release of Finding Paradise will result in a renewed interest in an adaptation.
