A live action Mega Man movie was first reported in 2018, and now Netflix will be releasing it on its platform.
It could very well be the season of video game adaptation to the screen, the rate at which we are seeing some of our most loved video game characters making their debut on the celluloid. And Netflix seems to be in the absolute thick of it.
It was only last month when Netflix released Arcane, its League of Legends origins story. Then there was the release of Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City, followed by Netflix teasing its own Resident Evil series. Then there is also Chris Pratt who will be providing his voice for Mario and Garfield.
A New Mega Man Live Action Movie Is Reportedly In The Works
And now, a post on Rockman Corner reveals that it has spotted an update on Supermaché that states, “Henry, Rel, and their in-house producer Orlee-Rose Strauss maintain an active development slate. Features in the works include: an adaptation of Capcom’s MEGA MAN for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix, which they wrote and are directing; NEMESIS, based on the Mark Millar comic, produced by Jules Daly and Sue Kroll for Warner Bros.; an adaptation of Edward Abbey’s novel THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG, produced by Ed Pressman, which they wrote and are directing; and RUNAWAY, a family adventure comedy based on a true story, screenplay adapted by Brendan O’Brien and produced by Matt Kaplan”.
Supermarché is the production company that is behind the Mega Man movie and is operated by the writer director duo, Ariel ‘Rel’ Shulman and Henry Joost. They will also be directing the movie. There is no indication as to when the movie will be released, however, as Capcom is gearing up for its 35th anniversary, we can expect some news, sooner rather than later.
