Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions are developing a film adaptation of the hugely successful action-adventure game Ghost of Tsushima, with Chad Stahelski attached to direct.
"The game recently crossed a massive milestone of selling over 6.5 million copies since its July 2020 debut." Pretty good for new IP.
That's good going tbh, better than a lot of established ips even, deserved.
An insane game.. I’m not all for a movie, I prefer a sequel
I'm sure the movie won't affect the followup, I'd say those devs are already all over it.
Sweet. Looking forward to this.
Love the John Wick movies so this is already looking promising compared to some game to movie adaptations... Monster Hunter, I'm looking at you lol.
Sony is making some brilliant moves. I look forward to any movies based on their PlayStation universe.
Hopefully they get the games cast, they are actors, not just voice actors
This here I agree. They are perfect for the part they already played. Even cooler if filmed in Tsushima that brings even more recognition to the place.
Usually in these cases the studio would want to cast other actors for "star power", things they can use in marketing and to draw people in since the motion capture actors wouldn't "cut it" in their view. However it's not like in the western world, Hollywood have a lot of well known Japanese action stars who have that star power they'd want and I mean star power like Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Robert Downey, Jr. etc so there's literally no reason to cast new actors because they'll mostly be all "unknown" to the mass market either way if their names popped up in trailers. You could probably get Hiroyuki Sanada and Ken Watanabe for Lord Shimura or Khotun Khan but even then you may aswell just take a chance on the people who starred in the game. Why get new actors who don't know the character when you could get someone who literally played them already.
Well, I love the John Wick movies and I love Ghosts of Tsushima, so this may be the perfect match!
I love Samurai movies of old I hope this is made well . I am really looking forward to the next game much more than the movie but I will watch it no doubt
So sequel is a given. Good! Amazing game!
The more samurai stuff I get the happier I am... But I kinda wish God of War would get a movie as well from a good director like this
Honestly, out of all movies and shows based on video games coming out, this one has the most potential IMO.
Hopefully they pull this off right. Proper cast for one and the proper pacing is all it needs.
Great! Tsushima is the pinnacle showpiece of the PS4/XB1 generation, I hope they do the movie justice! GoT is easily in my top 5 all time, its just so well done in so many ways. I cant wait to see what Sucker Punch can do with the PS5... lawd have mercy!
Sony and their talented Devs equal pure success: Playstation is like: https://media2.giphy.com/me... Few will understand it :D
