Screen Gems is currently in charge of bringing the project to life. Capcom have so much as confirmed it themselves.
Screen Gems was also responsible for bringing the Resident Evil movies into fruition, starting way back in 2002. A Mr. Kyle Ward has been hired to write the script. The story will apparently revolve around Dante hunting down and executing demons in order to avenge his mother’s murder.
There’s word yet regarding who’s being cast as who, and I’m not sure if there’s anyone out there who can bring Dante to life quite like Reuben Langdon was able to, but it will be interesting to see who gets the gig. Speaking of which, it’s not yet clear which version of Dante we’ll be seeing brought to the big screen — I imagine many will be wanting to see “Classic Dante” given his own movie, rather than the younger Dante from the upcoming DmC reboot that hasn’t been especially well-received by long-term fans of the series.
