The iconic 90s Sega video game Streets of Rage is getting a feature movie adaptation thanks to Lionsgate, and they’ve hired John Wick creator Derek Kolstad to lead and develop this movie. This is the perfect project for him and I’m sure he’s going to have a lot of fun bringing this game to life on the big screen!
Kolstad said in a statement: “When Dmitri first mentioned the idea of cracking a ‘Streets of Rage’ movie, I was so immediately freaking in. And to play with Sega? The 10-year-old me is still grinning.”
Streets of Rage is about a group of ex-cop vigilantes who fight against a vicious crime syndicate.
The producers include Sega’s Toru Nakahara, dj2 Entertainment’s Dmitri M. Johnson, Timothy I. Stevenson, Dan Jevons, and Escape Artists Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Tony Shaw. Nakahara was the producer of the first two Sonic the Hedgehog movies and is an executive producer for Sonic Prime, an upcoming spinoff series.
