Lost Planet to get huge budget
On behalf of the company, Toshihiro Tokumaru stated that the film would involve Avi Arad and cost at least $150 million.
"Speaking of 'Lost Planet', that project will cost somewhere between 150 and 200 million dollars to make. The producer on the project is Avi Arad, producer of Spider-Man," he said.
He went on to say that the film would expand on the game's characters, their upbringings and relationships, in a bid to "add substance" to the narrative.
