Capcom Sees Film Industry As Easy Money, Future Franchises To See Theatrical Adaptations?
Capcom is no stranger to the movie industry. With three Resident Evil films and a few Street Fighter films under their belt, Capcom thinks its time to bring on the heat.
Bloomberg is reporting that Capcom is currently in talks with Hollywood film studios to produce films based off of their numerous franchises.
"We are in the process of working out contracts for several offers we received at the Cannes Film Festival last week and hope to make an announcement soon,'' Tsujimoto said in a Bloomberg Television interview broadcast today, declining to provide specifics. "If realized, the projects will have a big impact on the game and movie industries.'' "
Capcom's strategy is to emulate the success of Marvel, who have adapted their more popular comic franchises into big blockbuster hits.
Possibilities of a theatrical Rockman film? Maybe so, but we've already discussed why that would be a bad idea.
Who knows what the future holds.

No movie anytime soon, the only thing original series thing planned in the near future is Rockman 9 for VC and PS3 Download.ReplyDelete

@The Shadow: You better be right...ReplyDelete
Whatev. I think it could be cool... we'll see. :PReplyDelete
... Methinks shadow may be not real?? ... Not that I don't hope he's right... but would it not be for wiiware, and not VC, if he were telling the truth?ReplyDelete
This is the truth.... and when you see it's true. I will return with more info..... but you will see...... and you will be begging for more. Testing for the game is almost complete.ReplyDelete

I think a Megaman movie would be a great idea. It'd help Capcom finally put the last nail in Megaman's coffin. It'd be more humane than churning out another hundred disappointing sequels and ignoring the fans.ReplyDelete
Err... did you read the other entries? They said Rockman would never die. I hope that RM9 is real...ReplyDelete
It's real and it's coming soon, the testing for it is being locally done in California and we are almost done. Here is a hint.... 2 playable characters and it's not Bass this time.ReplyDelete

How do you leak information without getting caught? Seems risky to me.ReplyDelete
I don't think a movie would be a terrible idea. The most adaptable series is the X series, in my opinion. If they tried to make it live action, it would tank, but a 3-D movie might be nice (provided it's good 3-D and not cartoon-ish like Pixar or Dreamworks).ReplyDelete
Well, I agree that a 3D adaptation would be best, but I believe that pixar or dreamworks would do the best job. Their productions are such high quality that it would be best-- they could do a different graphic style. Now, I'm not even going to try to argue which series would be best... *COUGHexeCOUGH*ReplyDelete
think its all BS why would they make megaman 9 now why not years ago?ReplyDelete
There should be a movie, but with no real peopleReplyDelete
If they make a Megaman Movie, they should make it in 3D GraphicsReplyDelete
I prefer Rockman CG like Biohazard: Degeneration CG Anime known as Resident: Degeneration CG Anime. And it should be from Japan and translate it in english for USA and not USA made please, thank you.ReplyDelete
