A Mega Man Movie Is in the Works at Fox

20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have started development on a fan favorite in the video game world. Heralded as one of the most popular video game franchises in history, MEGA MAN is now on his way to the big screen. Feel free to be cautiously optimistic.

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.

Okay, so…Fox. You’re right, Tracking Board, that the best case scenario is that it’s up to the level of the Planet of the Apes reboots. On the other hand, Fox is also known for cheaping out on Marvel movies, and the Maze Runner series. On the other other hand, Deadpool and Apocalypse look good so far.

I don’t think we particularly need a Mega Man movie at all, but I’ll say this: it’s a good thing Adam Sandler is at Sony.
