Lost Planet movie working with nearly $200 million budget

By Nathan Grayson, Sunday, 25 January 2009 10:42 GMT


Remember when Square almost exploded into coins after Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within vomited all over the big screen? Well, this isn’t really like that – mostly because Capcom has licensed Lost Planet out to a third-party. But still. $150-$200 million.

The information was confirmed by Capcom Head of Character Content Business Toshihiro Tokumaru during a PR interview.

To put that amount in perspective, The Dark Knight pocketed 185 million of ol’ Uncle Warner’s dollars before slipping into theaters.

It is, however, unconfirmed as to whether or not this much money exists. Nobody’s ever seen it all in one place; we asked everyone. As such, we remain skeptical.

Thanks, GameDaily.
