Lionsgate has stepped up to give the upcoming film adaptation of the Sega videogame Streets of Rage a home. The studio picked up the feature film that comes from John Wick‘s Derek Kolstad. A report from Deadline stated that the John Wick creator and writer will also produce the film alongside Toru Nakahara, Dmitri M. Johnson, Timothy I. Stevenson, Dan Jevons, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Tony Shaw.

The Sega side-scrolling fighting game took the 90s by storm and quickly rose to the status of one of the most popular video game series of that decade. Just a couple of years ago, a fourth entry in the franchise was released, and even after over 20 years, Streets of Rage 4 quickly won the fandom over once again and became a bestselling title.

Of the project, Kolstad said:

“When Dmitri first mentioned the idea of cracking a Streets of Rage movie, I was so immediately freaking in. And to play with Sega? The 10-year-old me is still grinning.”

Johnson also chimed in, saying:

“I’ve wanted to make a Streets of Rage film since I was 12 years old. This has shaped up to become a ‘dream project’ alongside a ‘dream team.’”

The Streets of Rage video game followed ex-cops who take on a criminal empire with their weaponized fists. There is some ground to make a hell of a film there and with Kolstad involved, the potential is even greater. It’s clear that everyone involved has experienced the quality and greatness the games provided and it should show in the production of the film. It also helps that Nakahara produced the first two Sonic the Hedgehog films which were incredibly successful box-office hits.
