Brett Ratner is a hack director who puts out films like Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3, and X-Men 3. So it should come as no surprise that he wants to keep that disappointing streak alive by bringing Guitar Hero to the big screen. Oh but wait, someone thinks that’s a terrible idea:

“I’d really like to do it, but they’re not letting me,” he tells “I expressed my interest, but because it’s such a success, it’s like now there’s no reason to make a movie about it.”

What? That’s Ratner’s excuse? They won’t let him make a movie about something because its so popular? Right. Just like how they told J.K. Rowlings no one would ever make movies about a boy wizard because the books had sold millions of copies.

Wait, there’s more! We might not be in the clear just yet.

But despite the setback, Ratner is not giving up hope. “I might prevail,” he says. “I usually do.”

Did he say, “prevail”? I think he meant “fail”. Don’t do it, Activision. Say “no”.
