Screen Gems, the studio that brought us the money-making-yet-not-well-received-critically Resident Evil film franchise is set to do it again with another beloved Capcom property: Devil May Cry. According to a Variety exclusive, they have just acquired the rights to bring Dante to the big screen. Seems like a logical next step for a franchise that has bred an anime, action figures, comics, and pretty much everything else under the sun.
The script is being written by Kyle Ward, who most recently wrote the upcoming Universal picture Fiasco Heights. According to IMDB.com, he is also writing the upcoming Kane & Lynch movie. That's a lot of vidya games on the big screen.
