Well-known classic and recent video game franchises will see film adaptations, in addition to a spattering of biopics, sci-fi/adventures, and other remakes and prequels. The “Saw” series will also see another sure-to-be gruesome installment.

Some selected/notable sales:

–“Castlevania,” based on the mega-popular video game franchise. James Wan tapped to direct.

–A prequel to “King Kong”: the adventure “Kong: King of Skull Island.”

–The David Cronenberg project “Cosmopolis,” adapted from the Don DeLillo novel. Story revolves around a 28-year-old multimillionaire who is chauffeured across Manhattan for a haircut but the journey takes 24 hours due to a presidential visit, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral.

–Perhaps drawing inspiration from Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, a Calico Ghost Town screenplay is in the works to be based on the old Knott’s Berry Farm attraction.

–Kids of the 1990s rejoice: World of Warcraft will finally get a film rendition. Sam Raimi set to direct for the Warner Bros. project.

–A biopic of legend Bruce Lee.

–“The Twilight Zone” adaptation, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s company Appian Way.
