Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will direct for 20th Century Fox.
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Capcom has announced that its Mega Man franchise is going to be adapted into a live-action Hollywood movie.
The feature film is tentatively titled MEGA MAN (all caps), and will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3) for 20th Century Fox. Via a press release, Capcom says it aims to “appeal to a diverse audience, including not only game players but action movie fans as well, with an adaptation that maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for.”
