Now Playing: Streets Of Rage 4 – Official Launch Trailer
dj2 recently signed an overall deal with Amazon, but there is no word yet on if the proposed Streets of Rage film will be made for Prime Video or if it will receive a theatrical release (or both).
The Streets of Rage series dates back to 1991 with its debut for Sega Genesis. The latest installment in the beat ’em up franchise was 2020’s Streets of Rage 4. The John Wick series is known for its excellent combat sequences, so fans may be happy to learn Kolstad is working on another action-oriented property next.
Kolstad isn’t the only John Wick alum tacking on a video game property. Director Chad Stahelski is making a Ghost of Tsushima film for Sony, and the movie recently brought on writer Takashi Doscher.
