Mega Man 11

The Mega Man intellectual property will be adapted into a live-action Hollywood film for the first time, property holder Capcom announced.

The film, tentatively titled Mega Man, will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, and distributed by 20th Century Fox. Chernin Entertainment, which is responsible for the Planet of the Apes series, will produce the movie with Masi Oka, of Heroes fame. Capcom aims to appeal to a diverse audience, including both game players and action movie fans, in an adaption that “maintains the world of the Mega Man games, while incorporating the grand production and entertainment value that Hollywood movies are known for.”

A release date for the movie was not announced.

The latest entry in the Mega Man series, Mega Man 11, launched on October 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
