Konami Digital Entertainment Announces a Live Action ‘Contra’ Film and TV Series




The classic 1987 arcade game Contra is getting a new live action film, which is being developed by Konami Digital Entertainment. And as if that wasn’t enough for you, a TV series is also in the works.

There isn’t currently enough information regarding who will be writing or directing the film, but here’s the official synopsis:

In 1988, a huge meteorite lands on an uninhabited island in the South China Sea.

Chen Qiang and Li Zhiyong investigate but come up empty handed. 29 years later, Chen sends commandos Bill and Lance into a combat mission there to neutralize the villainous Red Falcon Organization, but end up facing a different enemy altogether.

If made by someone with genuine love for the video game series, a Contra film or TV series could be something very special. We can imagine something along the lines of Predator and Alien.

Dark Universe will continue to keep on top of this story.
