Hey all, first time poster. I've been a big fan of the double dragon series since childhood (I'm 25 now), and I always wanted to see a movie done in a different aspect. It's a little tough finding other double dragon fans, so I came to this place seeing how it meets the criteria.

Anyways, just out of curiosity, if someone were to do a new double dragon movie, but I mean really do it up- a realistic manner, more dramatic, a lot of action, more of a serious rendition, would the fans be behind it at all? It's kind of a dated franchise, but I think with the right support it could be awesome.

Any input?

I don't think there are enough Double Dragon fans out there who would care about a movie. It seems that most gamers nowadays don't even know what Double Dragon is. Sadly, the series has lost relevance compared to other retro series such as Castlevania and Contra. Million would need to make the series a little more relevant by releasing some new titles and not simply rehashes of the original game (although Million isn't the one making all of these recent rehashes).

What's interesting is that back in 2005, Face/Off director Michel Werb stated that he had written a script for a new Double Dragon movie. However, nothing ever came of that. Here's the link where Werb was quoted as saying that: http://movies.ign.com/articles/592/592063p1.html.

I'd love a new Double Dragon movie. But considering how terrible most video game movies turn out, I'd also be scared. One thing is for sure: it probably wouldn't be worse than the original.

I hear ya. I was thinking of something that would do the franchise justice rather than harm it (like I feel the original movie did). Something real, gritty, and true to the story (er.. one of them). We'll see what happens.

They made a new Street Fighter film that came to theaters, which somehow managed to be even worse than the 1994 one.

Im a lifelong DD fan, but that 1994 film is just terrible in my opinion(and I love cheesey early 90s films!)

Only new DD animation or film would be strictly fan made on youtube
