The Devil May Cry series has been a very successful franchise as of thus far, selling a combined total of over 10 million units worldwide across four different titles. Despite that, it’s not exactly the next franchise I would’ve guessed to make the jump to the big screen. Screen Gems apparently sees some potential, however, as they just purchased the feature film rights from Capcom. A subsidiary of Sony Pictures, Screen Gems is also responsible for the Resident Evil movies, which have been met with mixed reviews from critics and gamer alike.
They’ve already brought writer and producer Kyle Ward on to transition the gaming property to the silver screen, although at this time it is unknown how the story will relate to the games or when we can expect to see it in theaters. Stay tuned for more info.
