Soul Calibur: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warren Zide's Anthem Pictures has acquired the film rights to Soul Calibur, the popular fighting video game from Namco.

The video game story revolves around two warriors who are chosen by Shaolin monks to recover and destroy a powerful sword that has fallen into the hands of an evil prince who plans to use it to open the gates of hell and destroy the world. "SoulCalibur 2," the most recent version of the video game, has racked up sales of 5 million units on all platforms, and the game also is a critical fave. It received the best fighting game award at last year's E3 interactive game conference, and Electronic Gaming Monthly named it the multiplatform game of the year.

Stay tuned for more on this project...
