The Netflix streaming platform has played host to a number of video game adaptations over the past few years, including the popular Castlevania animated series as well as the Monster Hunter animated movie.
Now, a report has surfaced suggesting that the 2018 announced Mega Man live-action film could be joining the ranks. This news comes via an update on the official website of Supermarché, the production company responsible for the movie. According to a short blurb about upcoming projects, the adaptation of Mega Man is explicitly listed as a collaboration between Chernin Entertainment and Netflix.
“Henry, Rel, and their in-house producer Orlee-Rose Strauss maintain an active development slate. Features in the works include: an adaptation of Capcom’s MEGA MAN for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix, which they wrote and are directing; NEMESIS, based on the Mark Millar comic, produced by Jules Daly and Sue Kroll for Warner Bros.; an adaptation of Edward Abbey’s novel THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG, produced by Ed Pressman, which they wrote and are directing; and RUNAWAY, a family adventure comedy based on a true story, screenplay adapted by Brendan O’Brien and produced by Matt Kaplan.”
The move appears to be a slight departure from the original plans that were announced in 2018, where 20th Century Fox was listed as the distributer. That said, at the time of this writing, further information about the film has yet to be revealed. Stay tuned for more details as they come.
