Castlevania, Tekken movie producer nets $200m financing

Cash to be used for Konami adaptation and movie based on Pac-Man

The production company behind movie adaptations of hit videogames Tekken and Castlevania has secured USD 200 million in financing for five films.

According to a Variety report, Crystal Sky Pictures inked the deal with Grosvenor Park for five movies, including director Paul Anderson's forthcoming Castlevania and a game based on Pac-Man.

"This financing is helping us in our expansion plans to green light films more quickly," said Steven Paul, head of Crystal Sky.

"We're now one of the few companies to have a big budget with which to develop our slate."

As well as films based on videogames, Crystal Sky also holds toy and comic book licenses such as Bratz, Deathlok and Ghost Rider.
