Starlight Film in a partnership with game developer Konami


One can blame or give plaudits to the positive reception that Netflix’s animated adaptation of the Castlevania video game franchise has been getting.

But a recent report has revealed that Starlight Film has entered into a partnership with game developer Konami under the influence of which a live action film and TV drama series will be produced based on the iconic run-and-gun shooter franchise Contra.


It shouldn’t be hard to imagine what kind of story a Contra adaptation will have as long as it features two dudes running and gunning down an endless stream of bad guys.

The project is primarily a Chinese project for now owing to the recent surge of Contra’s popularity in China thanks to the smart phone game called Contra: Return from Tencent.
