Can't see how a live action movie would work without heavily being edited with CGI

Human beings can't move at the speeds of the sons of sparda

That's why an animated movie would work better
It would just need a little cgi... Normale people can't move like Jedi or use the force but they can do that in the star wars movies thank to the actor training and cgi, all the fast lightsaber combat are Infact real in term of movement and choreography, there is no cgi in that case, like the battle between anakin and obi wan, the actor are moving like that thank to an extensive training... Also this is the case for the matrix movie, the first one especially, all the fight are made with training by the actor and choreography, the cgi is there but is not that much... So I think they can make a good movie with sword fight and use cgi when needed...

The fact is that it's always been hard to make a good movie out of a Japanese videogame since you can't take the same aesthetic and atmosphere the game has, since dmc it's more like a manga or anime, it would be pretty difficult to port into a film but a right director whit the right inventive can do that...

Especially now that dmc 5 has a more realistic aestetich regarding character, I realize this by just looking at the character clothes, dmc 5 had realistic clothes, even dante himself use a realistic leather jacket while in the other was more manga like, the red color on his jacket was exageretted in the previous installment while now is more dark in color more realistic, same for vergil clothes, and Nero clothes who are now realistic

I'm really curious about vergil...
Vergil is a pretty popular character so you could pitch him a spinoff. You could do a "journey to being a villian" story of why Vergil went bad or a redemption tale post 5.

There is even an alternate universe in one of the light novels were Vergil was good that could also be explored.

That alternate universe makes me curious to see how evil his brother could be...

@Ash
Evil Dante would be somewhere between Mercury Black (RWBY) and Baldur (God of War ps4).

I'm probably misremembering the novel but I assume details will get changed/altered down the road.

You know how one of the live-action Resident Evil movie borrowed some choreography from the games?
For example, the RE5 scene where Chris & Sheva VS Wesker was reused a little for Chris & Claire VS Wesker in Resident Evil: Afterlife.
I think that might be the only scene they borrowed, though.

I wouldn't mind seeing some choreography from DMC3 or DMC4 used, like Lady taking on a bunch of Hells or Dante running down the Temen Ni Gru.

But at the same time, there might be movie scenes finding its way into the games.
Like how Capcom loved the laser hallway scene so much in the first RE live action movie that some incarnation of the laser hallways are in the games.

I like @AgentRedgrave's idea to incorporate DmC into DMC. Before 3 is easier than adapting it after 3 but it creates a commitment for the series you have to honor. After 3 I'd chop up/separate the story beats into new plots or existing ones (i.e the manga, anime, light novels, etc) which is something Marvel and DC have done a lot (i.e Thor Ragnarok :wink:).

On the flip side, you could always just scrap the reboot and come up with another take on Dante's life. Before 5 the only real details we knew about Dante's life was that his mom died. DMC has always felt more loose than strict so there is a lot of freedom in exploring the characters and the world they inhabit. So I'm cool with them coming up with their own answers and stories between what we've seen.

3 names, del toro, guy ritchie, luc besson

their movies in refference : hellboy2, arthur legend of the sword, lockout (2012), fifth element

common theme of all mentioned above is a light-hearted easy going douchey likeable lead. Yet still cool and actiony. Those directors could pull dante's attitude.
