Production company Screen Gems, a Sony Pictures subsidiary, has purchased the feature films right to Capcom's flashy action series Devil May Cry, hoping to create a movie franchise based on the property. Screen Gems has previously worked with Capcom to produce the series of films based on Resident Evil -- a global hit for the company, bringing in a total of more than $580 million in box office grosses. Little has been revealed about the Devil May Cry project, though Kyle Ward, who also worked on the screenplay for Lionsgate's Kane & Lynch film adaptation, has been signed on for the script, according to a report from Variety. The Devil May Cry series has sold more than 10 million copies since debuting in 2001. Capcom has done much to expand Devil May Cry beyond just games in the past, too, helping create  novels, manga, comic books, and an anime series. Capcom is preparing to reboot the series with a new game titled DmC Devil May Cry, which is developed by Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved) and releasing for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on an unannounced date.
