Strap yourself in, for there’s a big-screen Mega Man movie on the way!

As per The Hollywood Reporter, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are in talks to write and direct the adaptation for 20th Century Fox. The Joost and Schulman tandem are likely best known for the Catfish documentary, Paranormal Activity 3, and Nerve. Chernin Entertainment and Heroes’ Masi Oka will produce.

The beloved Mega Man franchise began back in 1987, and since then the property has gone from strength to strength, spanning over 130 games on varying formats in addition to a vast array of animated movies and series. For those unfamiliar with the Mega Man property, the titular character is an android who has to battle a plethora of villainous androids who have been reprogrammed by the nefarious Dr. Willy. As well as its addictive gameplay, the series is also famous for its musical numbers and ridiculous deep roster of bad guys.

Expect more on all of this as we get it.
