‘Streets Of Rage’ Film In The Works; ‘John Wick’s Derek Kolstad To Write – Deadline



Around the Network

I don't know about this. Derek Kolstad I can trust to make a movie about three cops who decide to flip off the system and take down a local gangster their way, but the people who did the Sonic movies, I don't know if they can pull off a more serious movie like Streets of Rage.



Good, looking forward to this. Hopefully the rest of the Sega movies they said were in early development 5 or 6 years ago also get the greenlight in the wake of Sonic's success. I would especially love to see that Shinobi movie they teased back then become a reality, as well as the Yakuza movie, which was announced more recently.



Yuzo Koshiro compositions or bust.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I wonder what will be their next IP to make a movie out of? Golden Axe? Alex Kidd? Altered Beast? Crazy Taxi? Segagaga? Rent-A-Hero? Space Harrier?

Personally, I would hope for a Megami Tensei or Persona film in the near future, could make a great action movie if done right. Shenmue could also make a good movie I think.
