They've raised about $200 million that they'll pend on eight or ten films (I'm guessing, since they say they're going to spend $20-30 million per film. That may sound like a lot, but it's actually pretty low-budget as far as Hollywood flicks go-- the average as of 2004 was $100 million, and even if it does dip due to the economy, it probably won't dip THAT much.
I also want to caution the idea that they're only doing movies based on games or manga specifically-- I went to their website, and if you scroll down to the bottom of the press page, they talk a bit about how video games are the company's “main focus” and that they're also looking at “comics” and “graphic novels.” Some of that might be manga, and some of it might not.
So far, no word on what the company is working on licensing manga-wise, so all we know is what they DON'T have-- Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Dragon Ball Z, Speed Racer, and Lament of the Lamb (unless TOKYOPOP strikes a deal on that last one, which-- given the lack of news on it –might not be a bad idea).
What do you WANT them to make a movie on? That they specifically cite manga and not anime is interesting; it means we could have a shot at seeing a movie version of a manga that isn't hugely popular or well-known...maybe Kurogane Corpse Delivery Service or Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei...okay, it'd never happen, but a girl can dream, right?
