Devil May Cry Movie

Total votes: 7

The success of the Resident Evil movie, and to some extent that of the Tomb Raider movie, demonstrated that not all game-to-movie conversions had to follow the Final Fantasy road to bankrupcy. Whether Milla Jovovich and Angelina Jolie were the real reasons for the movies' success or not is still a subject open to discussion, but they did prove that it could be done. The movie industry did not need much encouragment and now a very large list of games is waiting to hit the silver screen. So if a Crazy Taxi film is in development, why not a Devil May Cry cinema port. In fact that is what game movies are slowly becoming, another version of the game.

The rights to produce the movie have been awarded to a Japanese company called Gaga Communications, which is also working on an Onimusha flick. The DMC movie won't even go into full production until 2005 - by which time, it is almost certain, a new Devil May Cry instalment will have been released.

The game does have the potential to become an interesting movie, after all Dante's one liners are the stuff Hollywood is made of. The question on which the success of the film may depend, is whether the movie-makers will be able to capture the unique atmosphere which has become the DMC trademark.

Devil May Cry Movie

i think Takashi Kaneshiro should do it if it's a japanesse movie because he played as Samanosuke and he played in an action movie called the Returner and had the action styles,attitude,and looks so he might be good

DMC the game was either loved or hated... i think the movie will go the same way... if the movie follows the current trends of improvement in the DMC series then i think it will be a worth while film... its just so hard to get it right.. and i'd hate 2 see it go wrong!

#1 fan I'd hate to see the movie go bad to but as I said in my future comments if anyone lisinted Gaga is a Japan company so they may make it a oriental or a American movie I have a few actors listed look at my past comments I posted

But as far as the series goes I think DMC1 & DMC3 should be left how they were and be made a movie just like the games storyline, missions, demons, and weapons,.Now DMC2 I think should be cleaned up a bit you now like they should show why Dante became so serious and dark or they should make Dante this c**key, joking, badass demonslayer like he was in DMC1 & DMC3

Devil May Cry Movie

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! they will f**k it up!!!!!! only the second resident evil is good the first one aint no count i get tired of people trying to make movies out of a kick ass game and mess it all up only the first tomb raider was good to me, its mainly people just trying to get money instead of making a movie true to the game which is why i wish i was rich so i could make my Dante stories that i write for fun into movies.

If they were too make a DMC movie, I'd like it to go before DMC3, perhaps a little tidbit(flashback maybe) to when Eva was alive and Vergil and Dante got along.Hopefully they'll do the fight scenes with a huge amount of style, finesse and maybe some flamboyance(seeing as Dante is a little over the top crazy guy). That being said, i sincerially hope that they stick to the story and elaborate as well as fill in a couple holes(especially if they are going to incorperate DMC2). Either way it'd be a bloody hard job for any director, and actor.

shifting the DMC series to another medium is a risky move, just like doing so to any other game. True, the movie SHOULD stick to the plot of the original game, but when you look at the story in DMC1, there was a beginning and there was an end, not much sitting there in the middle, so just sticking to the story will give you senceless violence during the movie with lots of talking at the end to make up for the lack of it anywhere else.

Hey man, I totally agree. I think Devil May Cray definitely has the potential to be a great movie adaption. hey, where would I try out for a part for Dante??? I have some pics and you can let me know if you think I have a shot...send me an email...

Devil May Cry Movie

Ok, I think that it's been quite long enough, and the suspense is really pissing me off! Who have they chosen to play as Dante? I know all of the rest of you gamers are waiting for the same thing. If they mess this up it's going to really piss people off. If they can make Underworld's heroin and Resident Evils Heroin so azz kicking then they can find the perfect Dante. Let's just hope that the guy actually resembles our favorite Devil Hunter!

If they’re actually going make DMC movie I think they should consider going the way of CG. That way they don't have to find someone good enough to play Dante (which there isn't), just a good enough voice. Think of the crazy things they can have Dante doing.

Devil May Cry Movie

I think that all the game to movies have been quite good but us gamers have our expectations way too high...... its a good thing doh because soon they will make a really good kick ass movie ... the best transformation from game to movie in my opinion was doom ... that was really cool just how i wanted it to be .... about the casting woah how hard will that be dante has to be a kick ass dude or people r gonna be pissed i think i read that if they make the film like street fighter 2 they would have no f**king problems ..... dante and mundus would look awesome anway i look forward to it ......

Devil May Cry Movie

im with reece on that us gamers have a high expectations for the game movies and the best game movie was doom in my opinion to it was kick ass and Karl Urban in that movie and also me saying that im hinting that maybe he should be the actor of Dante

Devil May Cry Movie

There is only one person who can play Dante.Reuben Langdon. He was Dante in DMC3. He looks the part, already knows and loves the character, can do all his own stunts and DAMN can he move...I'd cast him.

Devil May Cry Movie

I have seen the recent Blood Rayne and I must say that I was dissapointed. However, the CG work for FF Advent was brilliant. I am a 38 year old woman and I am just blown away from the sexiness of the men in FF Advent. I have heard of the romour about DMC going into production and I am so scared that they will present my Dante in a light that just is not him. He is not only sexy and smart, but he is superior to all men. He is the epitome of what a man could be. A dynamic dark male diva!!! Please get a perfect actor for him. He will be hard to find.
