With the new release of Mega Man 11 just a few days ago, Mega Man is now coming to the movies.
20th Century Fox will distribute the live-action film, which will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. The pair made the original Catfish documentary and as well as a pair of Paranormal Activity movies.
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,”.
There’s no word on if any specific game or storyline will be followed. There, of course, have been various iterations of the character in multiple mediums. You have to think though, it’ll probably be about the one and only blue blaster wielding protagonist, defeating an increasing difficult series of boss masters.
