Live-Action Contra Movie And TV Series To Be Released Worldwide
Though a live-action Contra movie and TV series were announced earlier this year, today Konami announced that this vision would be carried out in-conjunction with China’s Starlight Media with plans to release both projects worldwide.
According to the official synopsis for the Contra movie, it appears that it is drawing inspiration from several mediums in the franchise:
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.
No release date has been announced yet for either the movie nor the TV show, but Konami hopes to give fans more details soon. Are you ready to see Bill Rizer and Lance Bean shoot ’em up once more?
