Inafune: film in mind from the start.

At a press conference at E3 today, Capcom confirmed the forthcoming Lost Planet film which screenwriter David Hayter mentioned at last week's Anime Expo.

Hayter - the voice of Solid Snake, who wrote the X-Men movies and as the imminent adaptation of classic graphic novel Watchmen - will write the screenplay. The film will be produced by Arad Productions, the new company set up by former Marvel comics boss Avi Arad. Warner has the global distribution rights.

"This game has every ingredient that makes a great movie, from a reluctant hero to a betrayal," said Arad.
