PlayStation Productions is beginning to get its feet wet a bit in the movie industry. Despite varying reactions to the film itself, the studio’s Uncharted touts over $380 million at the worldwide box office. Up next, the studio will produce a new feature based on the wildly popular video game Ghost Of Tsushima. As first reported by Deadline, screenwriter and director Takashi Doscher is boarding the project to pen the screenplay.
Ghost of Tsushima is a 2020 action-adventure game. The game follows Jin Sakai, a samurai on a quest to protect Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. It received several nominations at The Game Awards 2020, including Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, and Best Performer.
John Wick filmmaker Chad Stahelski will direct the upcoming adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima. Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions will collaborate on producing and distributing the film. Stahelski, Alex Young and Jason Spitz will executive produce the adaptation via their 87Eleven Entertainment banner.
Sony Interactive Entertainment launched PlayStation Productions in 2019 to adapt video game franchises into films and TV shows. So far, the burgeoning studio has given the green light to a Jak and Daxter big-screen adventure following Uncharted and Ghost of Tsushima. On the TV side of things, PlayStation Productions is producing HBO’s The Last of Us starring Pedro Pascal and Peacock’s Twisted Metal starring Anthony Mackie.
