The upcoming Beowulf movie from Back to the Future director, Robert Zemekis, will be entirely digital (like Polar Express) and so will share models, textures, and locations directly. This is good news as its usually the art assets that take the most time and effort in the developement of a game. Zemekis says:

‘Beowulf’ is particularly well-suited for the video game format. Not only does the film have a compelling story and strong visual style that will translate well into a game, but because the film is entirely digital, we are able to share our assets with Ubisoft. Audiences will be able to make a seamless transition between the film and the game.

The game and movie are being made in parallel by Paramount and Ubisoft, and will be one to watch out for. (From Kotaku.)
