Masi Oka talks briefly about making the Mega Man movie.

Here’s the Mega Man related questions in his interview with Collider…

Collider : Are you still working on producing a Mega Man movie?

OKA: We’ve just started the Mega Man movie. The writer/directors are working on a script right now, and we’re just in the beginning development stages of that.

Collider : What are you most excited about with that, and are there challenges specific to producing a story that’s based on a best-selling video game vs. a hugely popular manga?

OKA: With manga, there’s a lot of character development and it’s a serialized story. With a video game, it’s about game mechanics. The story might be a little bit lighter. There are definitely challenges with that, but I’m excited because our directors are big fans of the game. With anything animated, a game property, or anything IP, you want to make sure the filmmakers are huge fans because they’ll show a respect for the property and understand, at the core, what makes that property great. I don’t know where it’s going to go yet, but I am excited about Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. They’re great filmmakers and they’re really big fans of Mega Man.

Collider : Are you hoping for a cameo in that, as well?

OKA: Yeah, I’d love a cameo! I’ll probably have some sort of cameo and most likely I’ll die in it.
