Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company and India-based conglomerate Reliance Big Pictures have signed a deal with Capcom to bring Dark Void to the screen. The feature is being considering a “starring vehicle” for Pitt and — like everything else — a potential franchise.
Lukewarm responses to game adaptations haven’t seem to deter businesses from spending big bucks on video game movies. Activision is quietly working on a “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2″ movie, “Guitar Hero,” and a Sam Raimi-directed “Warcraft” epic.
“Dark Void,” which isn’t out until January 2010, centers on a pilot named Will who crashes into the Bermuda Triangle. The plummet takes him to an alternate universe where humans battle aliens with advanced technology. Gameplay will mix land and mid-air confrontations through the use of jetpacks. Judging from the poster and the video below, this looks like The Rocketeer meets Iron Man, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. »
