Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment has acquired film rights to the upcoming Capcom video game Dark Void under Plan B’s creative partnership with Reliance BIG Entertainment.
The project is being developed as a sci-fi action franchise and potential starring vehicle for Pitt. Dark Void charts the adventures of a pilot who crash lands in the Bermuda Triangle and awakens to find himself in an alternate world where he joins the battle against an advanced alien race.
CAA brokered the deal on behalf of Reliance BIG Entertainment and Plan B with UTA acting for Capcom. Jon Liebman and Cynthia Pett-Dante of Brillstein Entertainment Partners also represented Plan B.
Capcom will release Dark Void on the Xbox 360 games console in the US and Europe in January 2010.
”We are delighted that our creative partnership with Plan B has led to this agreement to develop the Dark Void motion picture based on Dark Void along with Capcom and we look forward to future projects from them,” Reliance BIG Entertainment’s chairman Amit Khanna said.
“As a game, Dark Void was developed with a wide-screen mentality – a world full of adventure presented in cinematic scope and scale,” Capcom Entertainment’s senior vice-president of licensing said. “Plan B recognised the potential of our newest property and are as excited about bringing Dark Void to life in cinemas as Capcom is to bring the interactive experience to home theaters.”
