Zenimax, the parent company of Bethesda, has filed a trademark for a motion picture of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The mid-August application for Oblvion covers:
"Motion picture film production; entertainment services, namely, providing motion picture theatrical films in the field of fantasy games."
Before all you Oblivion lovers descend upon the cinemas, be aware that the rights to both Fallout and Mass Effect have been registered, but as of yet, nothing has appeared.
Currently in preproduction is a film set in the Warcraft universe. Sam Raimi, Director for Spider-Man, is leading the project and it has the support of both film studio Warner Bros and production company Legendary Pictures. Maybe this films success, or failure, will decide whether Oblivion will ever hit the big screen.
