Studios Battle For Dante’s Inferno

Universal, Paramount, New Regency and MGM are in a major bidding battle for film rights to a new and as-yet-unannounced video game from Electronic Arts reports Variety.

The game, expected to be released late next year, involves a journey through the depths of hell and is likely to be called “Dante’s Inferno” as it’s said to be a modern interpretation of the first part of Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’.

Warner Bros. Pictures was also in the running but dropped out early yesterday.
