Capcom's head of character contents business, Toshihiro Tokumaru, has revealed the upcoming Lost Planet movie - based on Capcom's hit action title - will cost up to $200 million to make.

Discussing upcoming movie projects, Tokumaru said: "Well, there's "Onimusha". But it has been licensed out completely, so we have no direct investment in it. And then there's also "Clock Tower" and Lost Planet, though both of those two have been licensed out as well. 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. I think that it is because of our original IPs that we are able to try something so ambitious."

Tokumaru also explained the benefits of turning its video game titles into movies.

"When the game creators at Capcom develop a game, they think about everything from the main characters to the setting, which makes it easy to bring our games to the big screen," said Tokumaru. "In game-making, we consider the main character's upbringing, interpersonal relationships, and their place in time. But in a game we can only show a cross-section of that. In Lost Planet for example, we can show the game's protagonist on a distant planet fighting against various foes, but we can't really show his interpersonal relationships. By developing that part of it on the movie screen, we can add substance to that world and expand it."

According to IMDB the Lost Planet movie is scheduled for release in 2010.

I guess if the go a little back in time that wouldn't hurt.
