Mega Man Movie In Development At Fox



It's being reported a Mega Man movie is in development at Fox Studios.

Before you shake our head (because of Fantastic Four), Tracking Board reports the producers behind the Planet of the Apes movies are behind the project.

No other details are mentioned, but it's cautioned to at least remain optimistic about the possibility of the film seeing the light of day.

The news of the movie also follows news of a new 26-episode Mega Man TV series.

Mega Man was first released in 1987 on the Nintendo Entertainment system and has spawned over 50 games on multiple systems including over 30 million copies. The game sees Mega Man battling Dr. Wily and the evil robots under his control. As Mega Man clears each level and defeats each robot, Mega Man aquires a unique power from each of the robot's which aids him in his quest. Mega Man is also known as Rockman in Japan.
