Konami Planning A “Contra” Movie & Series

Konami Digital Entertainment has announced plans to turn their iconic 1987 arcade action shooter game “Contra” into both a feature film and TV series.

Encompassing twelve games to date, the series follows two soldiers named Bill Rizer and Lance Bean – members of a special task force who traveled to various future locales to pretty much destroy everything in their path.

Further details about the production will be announced at a later date, most likely at the American Film Market shortly, but a teaser trailer for the proposed adaptation is already online.
