Film production company Crystal Sky Pictures has secured a $200 million theatrical slate financing deal with Grosvenor Park, according to a report by Hollywood trade magazine Variety. The deal covers five features, including movie adaptations for Konami's video game series Castlevania and Namco's Pac-Man. A co-production with Universal's Rogue Pictures, the Castlevania film adaptation will feature a script penned by Resident Evil director Paul Anderson. The movie will be directed by Sylvain White, whose previous work includes Stomp the Yard and I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. Other titles included with the Grosvenor Park-funded slate are an adaptation of Richard Branson memoir Losing My Virginity and a sequel to John Woo's Hard Boiled. Crystal Sky hopes to expand its development capabilities with the new funding. Said Crystal Sky Pictures CEO and president Steve Paul: "This financing is helping us in our expansion plans to greenlight films more quickly. We're now one of the few companies to have a big budget with which to develop our slate."
