Lanter leads War Games 2

MattLanter.jpgMatt Lanter, you say Heroes, I say Commander in Chief, has been picked to star in the War Games sequel, War Games 2 - The Dead Code (IMDB list it as the Dead Game, which actually sounds a bit better).

According to Production Weekly he's set to star in the film, and they also have the new plot:

Lanter plays computer hacker Will Farmer begins to play an online terrorist-attack simulation game against government super-computer Ripley, he’s in way over his head - because Ripley is actually a complex piece of spyware, designed to ferret out potential terrorists and scoop them up. Only Ripley is a paranoid nutjob who’s hell-bent on placing pretty much everyone on Earth in a 3×3 cell, lest they turn unpredictably hostile.

Well I have to credit them in taking the story somewhere new. The terrorist angle is a bit better than expected and it does give an extra dimension to it. At least it's not simply fighting another war. Now as long as he doesn't defeat it as in the first film then this might be a fun sequel, although frankly it should never be compared to the original.
