Konami has announced that its classic 1987 run-and-gun Contra is being adapted as both a live-action movie and TV drama.

Expanding into film is one way game companies have been working to broaden the appeal of their properties throughout the years, and Konami’s latest project is no exception. According to a press release, Konami says the project itself represents ways it is striving to use its library of IP in “multifaceted ways” for more than just game development.

The live-action renditions themselves are happening through a partnership with the Chinese video-production company Starlight Film, though both are set to see a worldwide release.

At this point, not much else has been revealed about the project but Konami says more details will be announced at a later date.
