Live-Action Mega Man Movie Listed as Being in the Works for Netflix

live-action Mega Man

 

All has been quiet on the live-action Mega Man movie front for a while, but an update to production company Supermarché's website recently came through with an idea of where it will be landing. While it might come as no surprise given Chernin Entertainment's first look deal with Netflix, it appears the adaptation is indeed heading for the streaming service at some point in the future. 

 

Confirmation comes via the following excerpt of Supermarché's bio page

 

Henry, Rel, and their in-house producer Orlee-Rose Strauss maintain an active development slate. Features in the works include: an adaptation of Capcom's MEGA MAN for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix, which they wrote and are directing; NEMESIS, based on the Mark Millar comic, produced by Jules Daly and Sue Kroll for Warner Bros.; an adaptation of Edward Abbey's novel THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG, produced by Ed Pressman, which they wrote and are directing; and RUNAWAY, a family adventure comedy based on a true story, screenplay adapted by Brendan O'Brien and produced by Matt Kaplan.

 

Supermarché is the company operated by Catfish's Henry Joost and Ariel "Rel" Schulman, who are lined up to direct the Mega Man movie, which is being written by Mattson Tomlin (The Batman) and produced by Masi Oka. 

 

Other details are pretty much nonexistent at this point, and the film hasn't started shooting, so we likely have quite the wait ahead of us.
