Mighty No. 9 live-action adaptation in the works

Contradiction Films writer and producer Tim Carter today revealed on EP Live that his production company is currently working on a live-action adaptation of Mighty No. 9.

Carter, who has served as a writer on Sleeping Dogs and producer for the first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy told EP Live that the production team is in the early stages of creating a digital series to the spiritual successor of Mega Man.

"We are building the story right now," he said "Inafune-san created [Mega Man], and he has now created Mighty No. 9. We don't have the rights to Mega Man, obviously, but we are working with him on a live-action adaptation of it."

Carter added that he initially had concerns about how the game might translate culturally in a live-action production for a North American audience, but developer Keiji Inafune put his fears to rest. "I was a little apprehensive about it at first until I got his notes, and thought 'Dude, you should be working at Pixar!'"

No further details were revealed about what form the digital production will take.

Inafune, who is the creator of the original Mega Man and was a producer at Capcom, announced Mighty No. 9 at PAX Prime in 2013. The game was funded on Kickstarter.
