Nathan Drake isn’t the only PlayStation-exclusive character coming to the big screen. Announced earlier this week, Sucker Punch Productions announced that Ghost of Tsushima is being adapted into a film, and John Wick director, Chad Stahelski, is set to direct.
Alex Young and Jason Spitz from 87Eleven Entertainment will serve as producers along with Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan from PlayStation Productions. Luckily, Sucker Punch Productions will be heavily involved with the Ghost of Tsushima film, and Peter Kang will act as head.
Nate Fox, game director of Ghost of Tsushima, commented on the upcoming project:
The idea of translating our game into a new medium is exciting, and we’re intrigued by the possibilities. We’ve all been brought to tears in a movie theater surrounded by strangers. (Thanks a lot, E.T.) We’ve all gone to a movie on opening night when the crowd is so excited that they cheer as the lights go down. It’s a group experience that isn’t replicated anywhere else. To think that we could sit in the theater someday watching Jin Sakai up on the big screen is amazing. We’d all relive his tense transformation into the Ghost from a whole new vantage point.
As of this writing, there is no further information on the upcoming adaptation such as casting, story, release date, etc. However, filming for John Wick 4 will begin soon, so this project is still a ways off. But, Ghost of Tsushima (and its free DLC, Legends) is available now on PlayStation in the meantime.
The Last of Us is also in development as a TV show on HBO, and an Uncharted film is also coming soon.
