Brad Pitt x Capcom to unleash Dark Void film franchise

2:00 PM on 11.19.2009 // Topher Cantler

Capcom has just announced that it's come to terms with Plan B Entertainment on the rights to a film based on its upcoming game, Dark Void. Plan B Entertainment apparently being Brad Pitt's own production company, it's possible/likely he'll be the one starring in said film.

The project has been billed as a sci-fi action franchise, and I'll let the word "franchise" haunt your imaginations on its own. Capcom calls the movie a "potential starring vehicle" for Pitt, and given he's not such a bad guy, maybe it won't be such a bad movie. Right? Guys? Ehhhh ... *sigh*

Full press release is after the jump.

RELIANCE BIG ENTERTAINMENT AND BRAD PITT'S PLAN B ENTERTAINMENT JOIN FORCES WITH CAPCOM®

Sci Fi Thriller will be based on Capcom's New Video Game Franchise Debuting January 19th

Los Angeles, CA (November 19, 2009) - Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B Entertainment, under its Creative Partnership with Reliance BIG Entertainment, and Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, have come to terms on the film rights relating to Dark Void™, a new property from Capcom. The theatrical version of the Dark Void game is being developed as a sci-fi action franchise and potential starring vehicle for Pitt.

Capcom will release Dark Void on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC in North America on January 19, 2010 and across Europe on January 22, 2010.

Dark Void is an adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat which centers on Will, a pilot who crash lands in the Bermuda Triangle following a routine mission. Will wakes up to find himself in “The Void,” an alternate world resembling a primitive earth where aliens with superior technology are planning to take over civilization. Together with a faction of humans who have disappeared into the Void, Will takes on the alien race using their own advanced technology including a high-powered jet pack to defeat them and keep order in the civilized world.

Reliance BIG Entertainment, the flagship media and entertainment arm of Indian conglomerate, Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (R-ADAG), first introduced its innovative development/production financing deal, termed a Creative Partnership, with Plan B Entertainment at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

Reliance BIG Entertainment’s Chairman Amit Khanna commented, '”We are delighted that our Creative Partnership with Plan B has led to this agreement to develop the Dark Void motion picture based on Dark Void along with Capcom and we look forward to future projects from them.”

“As a game, Dark Void was developed with a wide-screen mentality - a world full of adventure presented in cinematic scope and scale,” said Germaine Gioia, senior vice president, licensing, Capcom Entertainment. “Plan B recognized the potential of our newest property and are as excited about bringing Dark Void to life in cinemas as Capcom is to bring the interactive experience to home theaters.”

The deal was brokered by CAA on behalf of Reliance BIG Entertainment and Plan B, and by UTA on behalf of Capcom. Plan B was additionally represented in the deal by Jon Liebman and Cynthia Pett-Dante at Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Thinking of starting to document my attempts in Super Mario Maker with screenshots etc. in a series of blogs - think USgamer's Daily Mario. But I think most who would spare a glance at it would be way better level designers and players than me by default.

Tearaway was cute, but it was kinda short and underwhelming to me. I would recommend paying around $20 for it if you value your money.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.
