Hollywood-Produced Mega Man Film Announced

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

While Capcom and Dentsu Entertainment USA are working on an animated Mega Man series, we’ve learned (via Hollywood Reporter) that a standalone movie is happening as well.

The report notes Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (CatfishParanormal Activity) are being tapped to write and direct the movie.

Chernin Entertainment is producing the film alongside Heroes actor Masi Oka. The report also notes that Twentieth Century Fox had to negotiate for two years to get the rights, with the deal made this year.

That’s basically all we have to go on for now, unfortunately.

What would you like to see in the Mega Man movie? Do you even want it made at all? Sound off in the comments below!
