Dark Void film rights purchased, Brad Pitt rumoured to star

Adaptation of Capcom's new flight-shooter already in development

Capcom's upcoming flight-shooter Dark Void isn't even out yet (it's due January 12) but it's already attracted the attention of Hollywood elite. Capcom announced earlier today that they had reached an agreement with Brad Pitt's film production company, Plan B Entertainment.

While his company's involvement with the game doesn't guarantee the superstar actor will appear in the movie--Plan B has produced non-Pitt movies like The Time Traveler's Wife and Running With Scissors -- Capcom's announcement states that Dark Void will be "developed as a sci-fi action franchise and potential starring vehicle for Pitt."

Capcom has been one of the most prolific creators of games that have been optioned for movies. Late last year, the company released the CG movie Resident Evil: Degeneration, while the live-action Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li came out in February. The fourth Resident Evil movie, subtitled Afterlife, is due out next summer.

While movie games are notorious for their failures with movie reviewers, Plan B has created many critically-acclaimed movies like The Departed and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Their upcoming slate of films should earn them cred with the gamer crowd, as the company has optioned properties like the zombie novel World War Z and the comic book series Black Hole.

Brad Pitt-Dark Void

I am pleased that Dark Void will be released with hopefully Brad Pitt .
I wonder where the auditions will be.

Perhaps, Brad Pitt will choose Angelina Jolie or Kristen Stewart to
star with him.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
