Streets Of Rage Film In Works

Speculation has been stoked by the continued success of the Sonic films, with reports circulating that Sega and dj2 Entertainment are collaborating with the writer of John Wick to produce a cinematic version of the classic Sega beat ’em up Streets of Rage.

As reported by Deadline in an article published, the Sega video game Streets of Rage, which was initially released in the 1990s, will be translated for the first time for the big screen shortly.

A rumor has claimed that Dj2 Entertainment, the same production company that was behind the original Sonic the Hedgehog movie, will be responsible for production. Publishers are now working with Derek Kolstad, author of the John Wick series, to develop a screenplay for the film version which will be launched later this year. On the other hand, it’s difficult to tell if Kolstad is a die-hard fan of the Sega video game franchise, which is now in production, or whether he just loves video games in general.

Streets of Rage Game Sequel

Please bear in mind that you will be taking on the role of one of the three vigilante police officers Adam, Axel, or Blaze, who must band together in order to protect the city from being overrun by Mr. Big’s very hazardous criminal organization. You can still enjoy this game even if you haven’t played the original Streets of Rage (which was released in 1991). In order to win the day, they must punch and kick their way through eight stages as they go from one side of the screen to the other.

In response to the game’s enormous success, two sequels were developed in a relatively short period of time following its first release. However, after the release of the highly contentious third game in 1994, the series entered a period of relative dormancy that lasted for more than two decades, until the current creation of Streets of Rage 4, which was completed and released to the public in April 2020.

It is said that Sega is turning to one of its most popular beat ’em up series for the next possible movie smash, after the financial success of the first two Sonic films that have been produced thus far.

Deadline also reports that another John Wick graduate is now working on his or her own video game film adaptation. A formal release date has been set for the autumn of 2022, in accordance with the film’s initial release date, which corresponds to the first announcement of the film in 2021.

At the same time, this is just one of a number of video game concepts being developed by dj2 Entertainment at this time. Between now and then, the film and television production industries are hard at work on projects such as films based on the television shows Life is Strange, It Takes Two (which is now in its third season), Sleeping Dogs, and Disco Elysium, among others. Not to mention the rumor that a Teddy Ruxpin film adaptation is in development. In the past, strange occurrences have happened to people.

According to predictions, the increased popularity of video game-based television series and films such as Arcane and Sonic will result in an upsurge in the number of video game-based films and television episodes announced in the months to come as a consequence of the success of these projects.
