During the current Comic-Con, many artists are revealing some information about the future of the industry. Without going any further, Junji Ito acknowledged that Kojima had invited him to work on a horror game or Captain Marvel actress, Brie Larson, who has reiterated that she wants to be part of a Metroid adaptation. Now it is the turn of the Mega Man movie, whose directors have confirmed that it is not only in the middle of the process but that soon there will be great news about it.
Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman had already discussed the plans for Capcom’s real-life film a few months ago. Currently, they have confirmed writer Mattson Tomlin as a screenwriter, after explaining how they had invited him to work on Mega Man themselves: “We are excited about the idea. I think we will soon be able to offer great news about it. Right now I can’t say much, but it is being a very dear and exciting project. “
When Schulman was asked what he loved most about the character, it was clear to him: “I like him being a helpless hero. We are both deeply fascinated by robotics and the future of automation, for better or worse. I think trying Combining this project with one of our favorite historical video games is the ultimate challenge. “
This is not the only Capcom movie that is also making the leap to the big screen. The Monster Hunter adaptation starring Milla Jovovich, which was set to premiere in September this year, was recently delayed until April 23, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
