As reported yesterday by Deadline, Sony Pictures and Playstation Productions have announced that a film adaptation of last years hit new IP Ghost of Tsushima is underway.
The project will be helmed by Chad Stahelsk of John Wick fame. In addition, the film will be produced by Stahelski, Alex Young, and Jason Spitz through their production studio 87eleven Entertainment. Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan produce on behalf of Sony Pictures and Playstation Productions with Peter Kang overseeing for developers Sucker Punch Productions.
No other cast and crew have been announced at this time, but knowing the caliber of this IP I expect to have some big names show up.
Ghost of Tsushima released last July to critical and financial acclaim, becoming Playstation’s fastest-selling first party original IP with 2.4 million units sold in it’s first three days. As of now, the game has sold over 6.5 million units worldwide and has received many awards and nominations including Game of the Year.
