Sony is continuing to go all in on turning its flagship video games into TV shows and movies — according to Variety
, the company announced that it’s making a show based on Horizon Zero Dawn
with Netflix at an event for investors. Sony is also working on a movie based on the Gran Turismo
series, according to Deadline
, but hasn’t found a distributor for it yet, and could feature Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie
) as its director.
PlayStation Productions currently has several other projects in the works (10 in total, according to Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra). It’s reportedly working on:
- a Twisted Metal series on Peacock
- a God of War show for Amazon Prime
- an adaptation of The Last of Us for HBO
- a Ghost of Tsushima movie
- a Metal Gear Solid movie
Oscar Isaac will be playing Solid Snake, Pedro Pascal will act as Joel, Bella Ramsey will play Ellie, and Ghost of Tsushima
is being directed by one of the people behind the John Wick
movies. And, of course, the recently released Uncharted
movie starred Hollywood’s golden boy, Tom Holland.
