Streets Of Rage Movie In The Works With Script From John Wick Creator

With Streets Of Rage, fans of old Sega games can look forward to another popular title getting the film treatment for the first time in a long time.

Because of the large number of video game adaptations that have entered movies in recent years, gamers who also like going to the movies may be feeling a bit spoilt. From a fresh new take on Resident Evil to Detective Pikachu to Uncharted, there isn’t a lack of games that have found their way to the big screen, many of which include well-known characters and franchises.

Sonic the Hedgehog fans were likely happy to see their favorite character in a movie, but the classic Sega games that are getting the movie treatment don’t stop there.

According to Deadline, the iconic Sega fight Streets of Rage will be the next classic Sega game to be released on the big screen. The idea began as a spec story penned by Derek Kolstad, the man behind the John Wick franchise. There are currently no facts available about potential directors, cast members, or release dates. Nobody, Kolstad’s most recent movie, starred Better Call

Saul’s Bob Odenkirk is the character of an odd action hero and was directed by Michael Bay. Kolstad has also partnered with Marvel Studios on the Disney Plus series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which he co-executive produced for the studio.

It was in 1991 that Streets of Rage made its debut on the video game scene as a side-scrolling beat ’em up for the Sega Genesis. Adam, Axel, and Blaze were three playable police officers that were the focus of the basic tale. Their mission is to bring down a criminal organization led by the not-so-cleverly called Mr. X, and they must do so quickly (not to be confused with the character of the same name from Resident Evil 2).

The game was a big success, and it was followed by two additional sequels, both of which were released on the genesis system. After a lengthy break, the Streets of Rage franchise was brought back to life in 2020 with the release of Streets of Rage 4.

Even though it is difficult to see any kind of movie-length story being created from this style of game, the same could be said of the side-scrolling platformer Sonic the Hedgehog. Both movies based on such games, on the other hand, have been a financial success and have received favorable reviews from moviegoers Streets Of Rage Movie.

This may be owing to the star power of Jim Carrey, who portrays the villain Dr. Robotnik in both films, but it demonstrates that classic video games can be turned into entertaining films in their own right. Also, the Streets of Rage movie will be produced by dj2 Entertainment, the same firm that is responsible for the Sonic films.

 

Additionally, having Derek Kolstad on board to collaborate on the film is a big plus. With John Wick, Kolstad is responsible for one of the most well-known and well-received action franchises of the past ten years, as well as several other projects (which are still going strong with a fourth film and two spinoffs on the way).

When it comes to the harsh action of that series, it will be exciting to see how much of it will find its way into Streets of Rage.
