'Dark Void' Becoming Movie, Could Star Brad Pitt; Actual Game Suffers Brief Delay

By Chris Faylor, Nov 19, 2009 12:01pm PST While Airtight's sci-fi action game Dark Void has yet to be released--it hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in January--publisher Capcom has inked a deal to see it become a feature film.

The film rights went to Brad Pitt's production company Plan B Entertainment, with Capcom noting that the movie could be a "potential starring vehicle" for the Fight Club, Ocean's Eleven and Meet Joe Black veteran.

It's the latest movie deal for Capcom, which saw Street Fighter's second major theatrical outing released earlier this year and is currently in the process of bringing both Lost Planet and a fourth live-action Resident Evil movie to the big screen.

As for the Dark Void game itself, in which jetpack-wielding protagonist William Grey finds himself in an alternate dimension and pairs with Nikola Tesla to help overthrow its tyrannical alien rulers, Capcom now expects it to hit North America on January 19 and Europe come January 22. Previously, the game was due the week prior.

"Plan B recognized the potential of our newest property and are as excited about bringing Dark Void to life in cinemas as Capcom is to bring the interactive experience to home theaters," exclaimed Capcom licensing BVP Germaine Gioia.

Other projects in the works by Plan B include adaptations of World War Z and The Lost City of Z, with the company receiving financial from Reliance BIG Entertainment.
