Sony is now working on a film adaption of Ghost of Tsushima, which has already sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide. The movie will be directed by Chad Stahelski.
Sony Pictures and PlayStation Production are developing the project, according to Deadline. Chad Stahelski will take the director’s chair after finishing his work on John Wick 4.
There is no information about the cast and the possible release date.
“We love working with creative partners like Chad, who have a passion for our games, ensuring we can create rich adaptations that will excite our fans and new audiences,” head of PlayStation Productions Asad Qizilbash said.
Ghost of Tsushima, released in July 2020, sold more than 2.4 million copies in the first three days since launch, becoming the fastest-selling first-party original IP on PlayStation 4. The game tells the story of samurai warrior Jin Sakai, who must set aside the traditions that have shaped him to bring freedom to Tsushima Island.
Sony now has one more movie based on the PlayStation’s IP. A film adaptation of Uncharted, starring Tom Holland, is set to release on February 11, 2022.
