Mega Man will be hitting the big screen via Hollywood, Capcom has announced.
The upcoming feature film, imaginatively titled Mega Man, will be written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman and is set to be distributed by 20th Century Fox. Chernin Entertainment, responsible for the Planet of the Apes series, will be producing the film alongside Masi Oka, of Heroes fame.
