"Mega Man" Movie in Development at 20th Century Fox

Tracking Board has released an exclusive statement from 20th Century Fox confirming that they and Chernin Entertainment (Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) are currently developing a motion picture based on the video game series Mega Man.

http://www.tracking-board.com/tb-exc...s-a-go-at-fox/

I think this will turn out well. Aside from the brilliant folks behind the Planet of the Apes reboot series being behind it... well, a Mega Man movie has been done and proven to be doable. Back in 2010, an independent film director named Eddie LeBron released an ambitious 94-minute fan film based on the story of the first game (with elements of Mega Man III added to pad the length) on a roughly $4000 budget, and it turned out reasonably well given the limitations. If a fan with a couple thousand dollars can do that much, imagine what a big-name studio like Fox can do, given that they do it right. They seem to have mostly gotten out of their "artistic integrity, what's that?" phase that reached its nadir with the triple-combo Dragonball Evolution/Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li/X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, so I'm cautiously optimistic that they'll do right by the Blue Bomber and his fans. It could still go South very quickly, but there's good reason to believe that they'll do well. Fingers crossed.

A Mega Man movie? F*** yeah! Will be interesting to see if they will base the story on the games or do something different with it.

(Please don't fuck it up 20th Century Fox ;_;)

Odds are, this has been in the works for a while. Some inklings of a movie being planned have been circling about for a few years now, but this is our first confirmation.

I just hope they do the series justice. Of course the chance of them making a decent video game is small. We will brobably get something akin to Agent 47. Not bad, but not particularely good either

^It COULD. We just have to trust in Fox's intentions.
