Brad Pitt’s production company has snagged the film rights to Dark Void, a new video game property from Capcom.
Plan B Entertainment has agreed to develop a sci-fi action franchise for the big screen as a potential starring vehicle for the actor.
Capcom will release Dark Void on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in North America on Jan. 19, 2010, and across Europe on Jan 22. The game is described as “an adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat which centers on Will, a pilot who crash lands in the Bermuda Triangle following a routine mission.
“Will wakes up to find himself in ‘The Void,’ an alternate world resembling a primitive earth where aliens with superior technology are planning to take over civilization. Together with a faction of humans who have disappeared into the Void, Will takes on the alien race using their own advanced technology including a high-powered jet pack to defeat them and keep order in the civilized world.”
