A TV show based on the video game Devil May Cry is in the works.
The series is set to be an animated project and is being created by Adi Shankar, who also created the animated Castlevania series on Netflix.
Devil May Cry is a video game series that began in 2001 on the PlayStation 2. The game has players play as Dante, a half human, half demon who uses his powers to hunt demons that have invaded Earth.
Shankar said that he has bought the rights to adapt the games in order to keep them away from Hollywood.
The Castlevania series on Netflix is also based on a video game series, with the Devil May Cry show expected to appear there when it airs.
A new Devil May Cry game is expected early next year, so it is likely that the anime series won’t be far behind.
A number of video game adaptations are in the works alongside Devil May Cry, including a Monster Hunter movie starring Milla Jovovich and directed by Paul W.S Anderson.
The team behind the Paranormal Activity movies is also working on a Mega Man live-action film and a Resident Evil reboot is also in the works from Aquaman’s James Wan.
