Dante’s Inferno

Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead”) is directing Universal’s live action adaptation of the Electronic Arts video game. ”The protagonist, Dante Aligheri is a knight who with the help of the poet Virgil ventures into the nine rings of hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. In the process, he becomes an unwitting pawn in an ancient war between heaven and hell. Rights to the video game were won by Universal several years ago in a bidding battle. The game was released in 2010 for Xbox and PlayStation.” Jay Basu wrote the most recent draft of the script. (Deadline)
