The Resident Evil movies were B-grade stuff. The upcoming Street Fighter movie does not look promising. But Capcom are making more movies, and Lost Planet is one of them. And on that, they are not messing around.
Capcom's Toshihiro Tokumaru - the company's character boss - has revealed that the budget for Avi Arad's adaptation of the 2007 shooter is between $150,000,000 and $200,000,000.
That's, uh...that's a lot of money. Big, Hollywood, summer tentpole kinda money. Silly money, really, considering we're talking the adaptation of a game that did OK business but will end up looking like the big-screen bastard child of The Thing and Starship Troopers.
