Tim Carter, writer and producer at Contradiction Films (Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Sleeping Dogs), has revealed that he is developing a live action adaptation of Mighty No. 9.
Speaking to Victor Lucas and Scott Jones of EP Daily, Carter says he is currently building the story but would not elaborate if the adaptation is a feature-length film or web series:
"We are building the story right now,” Carter said about the project. “Inafune-san created [Mega Man], and he has now created Mighty Number 9. We don’t have the rights to Mega Man, obviously, but we are working with him on a live action adaptation of it.” He said of Inafune, “I was a little apprehensive about it at first until I got his notes, and thought “Dude, you should be working at Pixar!”"
It should be interesting to see how this pans out. Same with any hypothetical Mega Man adaptation, I sort of feel this might work better as an animated feature. But who knows? Carter could make this work. I suppose we'll just have to wait and find out.
