Capcom has just announced that Mega Man will be gracing the silver screen in a live-action film produced by 20th Century Fox. The film does not yet have a release date, but is tentatively titled MEGA MAN with Capcom promising it “maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for.”
In a press release, they revealed Chernin Entertainment (Planet of the Apes) and Masi Oka (Heroes) have been attached as producers, with Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman writing and directing. Joost and Schulman are perhaps best known for their work on Paranormal Activity 3 and 4, and their 2010 documentary, Catfish.
There is no word yet on when we might expect to see the film hit cinemas.
