I really feel sorry for the DMC fan-base.
Also, as someone who relatively enjoys what I've played of the various DMC games, with the exception of DMC2, I don't feel that the series deserves to be demoted like this with a crappy movie adaptation.

The question that comes to mind is: Why hasn't this happened already?
Oh it'll suck (or, do what it's intended to do, if you look at it another way), but as soon as I heard the Resident Evil people were on it, I realized everything Alice does in the movies is exactly what Dante does. A 2-hour string of dodging monsters stylishly.

They'll probably get Paul Anderson to direct it. And a little piece of me will die on the inside... How does that man keep getting work...
