Legendary Digital Media, Contradiction Films and game developer Comcept Inc. are teaming to develop a live-action feature based on the upcoming video game “Mighty No. 9” which hits stores September 15th.
Legendary Digital and Contradiction previously teamed to produce “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” a feature-length adaptation of the zombie video game series “Dead Rising,” which premiered on Crackle’s online streaming service. A sequel to that is already in the works.
The plan is for the “Mighty No. 9” film to have a similar digital platform premiere. Comcept CEO Keiji Inafune created the game which follows an android named Beck, the ninth in a team of ten combat robots called ‘Mighty Numbers.’
When a computer virus strikes, attacking his fellow robots as well as machines around the world, Beck is the only one in his line of androids uninfected. Tomas Harlan and Tim Carter will develop and produce the movie.
