‘Mighty No. 9’ Videogame Live-Action Movie Adaptation in Works

Legendary Digital Media, Contradiction Films and video game developer Comcept Inc. are working on a live-action feature-length project for digital platforms based on the new video game “Mighty No. 9.”

The game has been created and designed by Comcept CEO Keiji Inafune and published by Deep Silver, which is releasing the new “Mighty No. 9” in the U.S. on September 15 and worldwide three days later.

“Mighty No. 9” is the second video game created by Inafune that Legendary Digital and Contradiction will adapt into a film. Legendary Digital Media previously distributed and Contradiction produced “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” based on the video game franchise “Dead Rising,” for Crackle’s online streaming service. Crackle has ordered a sequel film.

“Mighty No. 9” is centered on an android named Beck, who’s No. 9 in a team of 10 combat robots called “Mighty Numbers.” When a computer virus strikes, attacking his fellow robots as well as machines around the world, Beck is the only one in his line of androids uninfected.

Karl Dunn is writing the screenplay.

Inafune began designing games at Capcom, where he was part of the team that created the game “Mega Man,” which has sold more than 30 million copies globally. “Dead Rising” and its sequels have sold over 10.3 million copies worldwide.

A Kickstarter campaign collected over $4 million — eclipsing its goal by 465% — to fund the project.

Legendary Digital and Contradiction Films’ Tomas Harlan and Tim Carter will develop and produce the movie.

Dunn is repped by APA.
