Devil May Cry Film Rights Acquired
According to reports, Screen Gems, the studio that has now brought us at least five Resident Evil movies, has acquired the film rights to the Devil May Cry franchise.
The report by Variety states that the studio has hired Kyle Ward to pen a script. According to IMDB, Ward has also been hired to write a script for the upcoming Kane & Lynch film adaptation.
Screen Gems makes sense as Capcom has trusted the studio with its biggest franchise, Resident Evil, as the RE films have grossed over $580 million worldwide.
