After a little delay, director Eddie Lebron returns with a couple updates regarding the status of his upcoming live action Mega Man fan-film.
According to Eddie, in approx., four weeks, the current rough cut of the film will be screened for a test audience at MAGFest, a video game and music convention in Virginia. MAGFest attendees are more than welcome to preview the film, and should reception be positive, the film will be complete and ready for release!
In related news, Eddie announced a collaboration with fellow student Andrew Decrescenzo to produce a Mega Man comic based off of the film.
Planned to release sometime before the premiere, the comic will chronicle the events leading up to the film, focusing in on the histories of Dr. Light and Dr. Wily. Sounds exciting!
Check out Eddie Lebron's official blog for future updates.
Interesting. I'm hoping it makes it to the public by the end of December 2009 (the 200X period he mentioned originally), but now I really don't think this will be the case. Still, though, I'd like them to clean up any rough parts and make it the best it can be for a fan-film.ReplyDelete
As to the comics, that sounds interesting, and I hope it becomes available too (just out of curiosity).
That movie looks plain horrible,I mean look at that suit. And does this movie really take place in the year 200x period?ReplyDelete
I have to admit MegaMan looks a bit funny there with his strap-on breastplate. XD But I'm still looking forward to seeing this movie if I can. I know Mr. Lebron and his team worked hard; I want to honor that effort.ReplyDelete
Interesting. I can imagine the look on the director's face after he releases the film and ends up being panned all over the internet like every game-based movie out there.ReplyDelete
I mean, after stating that he can make a better game-based movie than the Hollywood directors, that's quite a setup for a huge fall if the movie ends up being terrible and everyone hates it.
I'll hold judgment until I see the movie. As for now I'm not liking the costumes.
Huh I wonder what an EXE or a SSR movie would be like? It would be pretty cool. Anyways, I really like the whole movie so far (considering that it is after all a fan movie) The only thing so far that I don't like is the suit.ReplyDelete
It's a Fan Flic, of course it's going to get approved.ReplyDelete
Everybody's going to say "Yes" for the effort and love of the series, but in the back of their minds, they're thinking "WHERE'S DENNIS HOPPER AS BOWSER WHILE YOU'RE AT IT?"
For those sayiing it will look stupid because of the way it looks,go watch "There will Be Brawl". I myself have hopes for this.ReplyDelete
Oh, heaven, noooo!
