Capcom, a gaming company that is well known for the development of a wide array of titles, seems to be shifting its focus slightly. CVG reports that Haruhiro Tsujimoto, President of Capcom, has expressed interest in creating movies out of its exisiting video game franchises. “We are in the process of working out contracts for several offers we received at the Cannes Film Festival last week and hope to make an announcement soon. If realized, the projects will have a big impact on the game and movie industries. We want to do with games what Marvel did with comics.” Capcom certainly has large ambitions, but video game to movie transitions have varied in quality. Everyone remembers the endearing, although abysmal Super Mario Bros. movie and countless other poor movie productions.
