Classic SEGA games to become films and tv shows?

Stories International has partnered with Circle of Confusion to produce adaptations of Sega’s video games Altered Beast and Streets of Rage for film and television.

Tomoya Suzuki, president and CEO of Stories International, will produce with Circle of Confusion partner Lawrence Mattis and Julian Rosenberg. Evan J. Cholfin, head of development and production, will executive produce the projects for Stories International — the production arm and joint venture of Sega Group and Hakuhodo DY Group.

 

Stories is also producing film and television projects based on Sega game franchises, including Shinobi with Marc Platt, Golden Axe, Virtua Fighter, The House of the Dead, and Crazy Taxi. It said Monday that it is in the process of partnering with major studios, producers, and filmmakers to co-develop adaptations of these properties as English-language feature films and television series for worldwide release.

“These are some of the most well loved SEGA games, and we are thrilled to be working with Stories to adapt them into major film and television franchises,” Mattis said.
