Mega Man movie apparently under development
« on: September 03, 2015, 11:39:20 PM »
According to the Tracking-Board, there is apparently a Mega Man movie under development from 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment. I'm kind of at a loss for words, even though one shouldn't be surprised at the kinds of movies being made today. It is unclear at the moment whether this is going to be a live-action movie or an animated movie, but given that most people don't spend a lot of money to see animated movies not made by Pixar or Dreamworks, odds are it will be live action. Feel free to place your bets though.

As for the production company behind this, I'll simply quote a part of that article.

Quote
One positive sign of things to come is Chernin Entertainment. David Ready and Michael Finfer are overseeing for the company, while Peter Chernin produces. Together they have a pretty solid pedigree for sci-fi action movies, including the recent/upcoming Planet of the Apes films. Mike Ireland and Ryan Horrigan are overseeing for Fox.

The recent Planet of the Apes movies are indeed excellent, so that is some comfort in these questionable and curious times. Still though, they're making a movie about a video game, so anything goes at this point.

More on this story as it develops.

I'm hoping it's not live action but it most likely is going to be.  Hopefully it'll be good but I'm setting my expectations pretty low.  Guess it might compete with the MN9 Live Action movie....

Super likely that it's going to be live action. Hopefully the scriptwriting team can whip up something good.

it could have the best writing and most faithful adaptation but it won't save the lead role from looking like a dork in that helmet

Hench why I would prefer it to be animated, even though it won't happen.

I hope that they don't just retread one (or more) of the games.

Don't worry I'm sure it will get the Transformers treatment and look nothing like Megaman at all.  8D

Well considering it's not directed by Michel Bay, M. Night Shyamalan or Uwe Boll it at least has a shot......maybe........

I was thinking along the along the lines of "Oh god, don't let this turn out to be like Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li." But then again, considering the track record of quality when it comes to video games made in feature-length movies by big-name studios, it's hard for me to be optimistic about this one.

At this point I will settle for pretty much anything other than a gritty blue Iron Man wielding a machine gun.  If they do THAT again, God help us all.

Chances are it's gonna be Dragonball Evolution bad; or look something similar to the live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Fear me.

Don't worry I'm sure they will take the peace loving Megaman and have him go around ripping off faces like they did with Optimus Prime.  8D

I hope this ends up being similar to the CGI Astro Boy movie, but with more action.

The movie is going to deal with the consequences of Megaman's actions at the end of Megaman 7 and Megaman starts killing criminals. 8D

Probably would be the best result of all the options. Animated is the only way to capture the Megaman essence.
