Yes, you read it right. As if we didn't have enough already.

Screen Gems has purchased feature film rights to Capcom's hit vidgame series "Devil May Cry," with the aim of kickstarting a new genre franchise. Kyle Ward has been hired to pen the script, which revolves around the character of Dante, who avenges his mother's murder by killing off demons.

Franchise was originally developed as the third installment of the "Resident Evil" games -- another Capcom property. But once the game's design started to deviate significantly from "Resident Evil's" style, Capcom decided to launch the title as an original property. "Devil" has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.

Screen Gems' "Resident Evil" franchise became a global B.O. hit for the genre label, with more than $580 million in worldwide grosses collectively. "Devil" represents the next potential vidgame franchise adaptation for Screen Gems. There have been five games in the series since, with the latest, produced by Ninja Theory as a reboot, featuring a younger version of the Dante character.

Capcom has been eager to exploit "Devil May Cry" across other platforms including comicbooks, novels, an anime series and collectible statues and action figures. Digital Development Management brokered the deal on behalf of Capcom.

Ward recently penned the script for Universal's upcoming "Fiasco Heights." He is repped by CAA.

If filmmakers can't properly adapt games with genuinely interesting storylines at their forefronts, what makes them think that they can adapt games with storylines that have been pretty vapid in terms of selling strength?

They should stick to anime.

With Milia Jovovich starring as Bayonetta. And then there will be a DMC/Bayonetta crossover movie in which Dante!Milia will meet up with Bayonetta!Milia and jkahhjdnvsjknjhjhvbhbdbghbghgdgbgks

Lemme guess, a long in depth discussion of how the fuck the timeline between sparta arriving on earth and his kids being born followed by a few angry demon scenes involving mama dante getting diced up then a big gay vampire impersonation followed by mug shots at the local PD?

This is just my assumption of plot but if anyone else has better ideas im all ears :P

My prediction is that they are going to make a story on wich a young Dante makes a journey of self-discovery and all that jazz, on wich he will sport something resembling his trademark red trenchcoat and weapons on the last 30 minutes of the movie (predicting is very easy with Hollywood :monster: ).

So they'd be lifting the story from the first novel, then?

(which THEORETICALLY takes place prior to DMC1 - or 3, depending on how you look at it)
