It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard, well, anything, about the live-action Mega Man film. We reported on it back in late 2018 when it was announced that one was in the works, but now thanks to directors Henry Joost and Rel Schulman who recently spoke with IGN, we have an update and we can expect to get some news about it soon. Shulman also takes the time to share his love of the franchise.
“We’re super excited about it. I think we’re gonna have some big news about it soon. I can’t say all that much right now, but it’s a project very near and dear to our hearts and we’re psyched.” – Joost
“The first Nintendo video game I ever played. I like that he’s an underdog hero and both of us are deeply fascinated with robotics and the future of automation, for better and for worse. I think trying to combine that into one of our favorite historical video games is the ultimate challenge.” – Schulman
