Sega Adapting Video Games to Movies

Movie News

Variety is reporting that we could very well be seeing some famed Sega video games being adapted for the big screen.

The report claims that Sega has hired Evan Cholfin, former Break Media executive and current head of development at Stories International, to assist in developing certain properties. Cholfin has previously worked with the likes of David Fincher, whilst Stories International is a company started up by Sega and the Hakuhodo DY Group back in 2011 in order to produce film and TV content.

In terms of what properties could get the movie treatment, the possibilities our literally endless. That said, there are some current properties that have the immediate attention of Sega. Those properties are CRAZY TAXI, RISE OF NIGHTMARES, ALTERED BEAST, SHINOBI and STREETS OF RAGE. Anybody who grew up in the early ‘90s and played video games will have a long-standing affinity towards the later three names in that list, particularly ALTERED BEAST and STREETS OF RAGE.

As ever, expect to hear more on all of this as and when it develops.

Altered Beast would be awesome! An Greek soldier battling his way through the underworld as werewolf and weretiger that can throw fireballs, an electrical dragon, and a bear with petrification breath.
