Konami announced that its action shooter series Contra is being made into a live-action movie and TV drama series that will be available for fans worldwide.
The live-action movie and TV drama series is being made in partnership with Starlight Film, a 2005-founded video production company, that will be in charge of the planning, producing, and investing in films. They’ll also be in charge of artist management, distribution, and promotion.
Here’s a teaser trailer for the Contra live-action movie:
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.
WeFmedia of Japan and Hanwin Film of China are also helping with the production.
Further details about the production of the Contra live-action movie and TV drama series will be revealed at a later date.
