Sony, seeing the success of their games, has created a studio to adapt their games to movies and tv shows. Sony is creating the Playstation Production Studios to adapt their PlayStation games to movies and tv shows. Sony will keep the producing of their movies and tv shows “in house”. They will keep a watchful eye on the production of their games to movies so there isn’t any chance of creative disputes. This is in response to the recent community of fans not liking the latest Sonic the Hedgehog in the movie to be released in 2019. Sony is taking a more hands-on approach to keeping to the authenticity of its properties. Shawn Layden is suggesting with this more direct approach to the producing, that Hollywood doesn’t understand how to translate one medium to another.
Sony is already in talks with producers to see about the specifics of their movies. Sony previously talked with key figures of movie producing such as Kevin Feige about how he adapted Marvel characters from the comic books to the MCU in the movies. Sony talked with these prominent individuals to get a better understanding of how to translate their games to movies. As of right now, there are no known titles in the works. PlayStation Studios will not be working on any yearly quotas for now so there will be more focus and attention on bringing the characters to life correctly.
PlayStation has over 100 different titles to work with for adaptation to the big screen in the theatre or in your living room. There aren’t any specifics on who is first for this adaptation for a movie or tv show. Many have suggested beginning work on a live-action version of the Uncharted series that had amazing success with the series since day one. It makes sense as the series is already with humans searching for long lost treasure, to sum it up briefly. Tell us what you think about this and which PlayStation game you want to see turned into a movie.
