Devil May Cry movie rights acquired by Screen Gems

March 1, 2011, By Christian Davis

Another Capcom favorite is now being adapted to film by Screen Gems. What was the first series that they brought to the big screen? The Resident Evil franchise which has been extremely lucrative.

Whether you like the films or not, they brought in over $580 million and they’re hoping to recreate that success.  Kyle Ward, has been hired to write the script but doesn’t have any work to show off his skills just yet. Though he is attached to the Kane and Lynch film.

The film will follow Dante on a quest to avenge his mothers murder. Whether the game is going to be based off the original games or the upcoming reboot by Ninja Theory is not yet said, but I personally hope these movies are better then the Resident Evil films.
