Seems that every studio is lining up to get their very own video game movie adaptation underway, and Dimension Pictures is only the latest. The studio will distribute the movie based on "Dead or Alive" some time in the fall of 2006.
Variety says "Dimension Films has sealed a deal to acquire North American distribution rights to the vidgame-based action pic "Dead or Alive" by "The Transporter" helmer Corey Yuen.
Devon Aoki, Sarah Carter, Natassia Malthe, Matthew Marsden, Jaime Pressly, Eric Roberts and Holly Valance star in the adaptation.
Impact Pictures’ Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt produced the pic, along with Constantin Film’s Bernd Eichinger and Robert Kulzer and Mindfire Entertainment’s Mark Altman.
J.F. Lawton, Seth and Adam Gross and Granz Henman penned the adaptation.
Dimension, the genre arm of the Weinstein Co., will roll out the pic, shot in China, next fall."
