Capcom has now announced that a live-action Mega Man film will come to us soon. It has been more than a year since it has been revealed that the directors of Paranormal Activity 4, Ariel Schumann and Henry Joost would be attached for helming and writing this. Capcom is now moving ahead for celebrating the 30th anniversary of the side-scroller.
.The Mega Man franchise has sold more than 32 million video game units all over the world and will continue to sell due to Mega Man 11. The very first character that had shown up in the year, 1987 on the Nintendo Entertainment System had offered all the gamers a unique challenge of choosing which bosses they actually wanted to battle. The patterns had been recognized, and an order had been figured out from here, and this had allowed all the players to beat a few bosses easily due to the weapons they had gained from a few previous missions. Capcom had this to say:
“Based on the influential and globally beloved Mega Man franchise, Capcom aims to appeal to a diverse audience, including not only game players but action movie fans as well, with an adaptation that maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for.”
Video game films do not really have the best track record, and it will surely be super interesting to see how the studio actually handles the Mega Man story on the silver screen. Chernin Entertainment is now producing the movie with Masi Oka, who had produced the Hollywood Death Note.
Mega Man 11 had been released this week and had earned a lot of great reviews. This game does not deviate from its previous 10 installments but had a facelift, and this had left the fans very disappointed.
As of now, there is no release date for the Mega Man live-action film.
The casting announcements will make their way to the internet soon.
