Sega’s “Altered Beast” and “Streets of Rage” Are Going to Be Movies!

Stories International has partnered with Circle of Confusion to produce adaptations of Sega’s video games “Altered Beast” and “Streets of Rage” for film and television, says Variety.

“Altered Beasts” was a game-changer for us kids in the 1980’s; not only was in incredibly fun to play, but the graphics were such a huge leap forward. Oh, and it had monsters – a wolf, dragon, bear and tiger. “Streets of Rage” is one of my favorite side-scroll games, which has two ass-kicking sequels in which you select a fighter to kick a drug lord’s ass.

Production-management company Circle of Confusion produces “Fear the Walking Dead,” “The Talking Dead,” “Powers,” “Outcast,” and “Dirk Gently.” Circle partner David Engel executive produced “Straight Outta Compton.”

Tomoya Suzuki, president and CEO of Stories International, will produce with Circle of Confusion partner Lawrence Mattis and Julian Rosenberg. Evan J. Cholfin, head of development and production, will executive produce the projects for Stroies International — the production arm and joint venture of Sega Group and Hakuhodo DY Group.

Stories is producing film and television projects based on Sega game franchises, including “Shinobi” with Marc Platt, “Golden Axe,” “Virtua Fighter,” “The House of the Dead,” and “Crazy Taxi.” It said Monday that it is in the process of partnering with the major studios, producers, and filmmakers to co-develop adaptations of these properties as English-language feature films and television series for worldwide release.

    To me it was just another Tuesday

      That’s a Capcom franchise, but still one of the best lines in the whole movie.

  • The conspiractor

    Side-scrolling action MOVIES. I have no idea if this is brilliant or insane.

    • Matt

      Is it not possible that it could be both?

      “WIBE FWA U GWAIB!!!”

      fixed that for you.

  • Aaron King

    How about movies based on El Viento and Exile too?

  • Matt

    I loved Altered Beast and Streets of Rage as games, but not sure of live action adaptations. Streets of Rage might work. However, a Shinobi movie or TV show would be tits! Golden Axe could also be promising.

  • Werewolf

    Awesome! If I watch “Streets” and a freshly cooked turkey doesn’t fall out of a busted trashcan I will be pissed off.

    This is a farce. I been waiting for a Final Fight film or TV series since 4th grade.

    Whatever, Mike Haggar for President: Let’s Make America Use A Lead Pipe Again.
