"Dead or Alive" it'll be done


Another video game is getting the big screen treatment. Impact Pictures and Constantin Films will bring Tecmo’s "Dead or Alive" fighting video game franchise to the big screen in association with Mindfire Entertainment. Impact concurrently has video game-to-movie titles "Driver" and "Resident Evil 2" in the works. Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, founding partners of Impact Pictures, will produce "DOA" as part of their existing deal with Constantin Films, says The Hollywood Reporter. Bolt said the film, described as "Charlie’s Angels" meets "Enter the Dragon," will go into preproduction this year and is targeted for a fall 2004 release.
