Capcom’s sword-wielding, gunslinging hack-and-slash action-RPG Devil May Cry is coming to the big screen.
Devil May Cry follows Dante, a half-demon mercenary detective who specializes in paranormal cases. Utilizing guns, swords, and a variety of other weapons, he eradicates demons and other monsters, and is widely considered one of the coolest videogame heroes.
The film rights to the series have been purchased by Screen Gems, the studio behind the popular Resident Evil film series. Considering the commercial success (despite less than stellar critical attention) the RE film series has gained, Capcom is likely very happy to have the studio behind another one of its projects.
