Dark Void film rights purchased, Brad Pitt rumoured to star

Adaptation of Capcom's new flight-shooter already in development

Capcom's upcoming flight-shooter Dark Void isn't even out yet (it's due January 12) but it's already attracted the attention of Hollywood elite. Capcom announced earlier today that they had reached an agreement with Brad Pitt's film production company, Plan B Entertainment.

While his company's involvement with the game doesn't guarantee the superstar actor will appear in the movie--Plan B has produced non-Pitt movies like The Time Traveler's Wife and Running With Scissors -- Capcom's announcement states that Dark Void will be "developed as a sci-fi action franchise and potential starring vehicle for Pitt."

Capcom has been one of the most prolific creators of games that have been optioned for movies. Late last year, the company released the CG movie Resident Evil: Degeneration, while the live-action Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li came out in February. The fourth Resident Evil movie, subtitled Afterlife, is due out next summer.

While movie games are notorious for their failures with movie reviewers, Plan B has created many critically-acclaimed movies like The Departed and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Their upcoming slate of films should earn them cred with the gamer crowd, as the company has optioned properties like the zombie novel World War Z and the comic book series Black Hole.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
