Sony will quickly broaden its film enterprise with one other characteristic movie primarily based on Bend Studios’ open-world zombie apocalypse recreation Days Gone.
In keeping with Deadline, Sony PlayStation Productions is presently engaged on a film primarily based on the PlayStation property, although followers hoping to see Sam Witwer observe the position from the lounge to the film theatre might be upset.
Deadline stories that Sony is working with the Oscar-nominated screenwriter Sheldon Turner who beforehand labored on X-Males: First Class and the Adam Sandler comedy The Longest Yard. Nevertheless, there’s no point out of the online game’s main man, Sam Witwer, who supplied the voice, likeness, and movement seize for Deacon St. John within the Days Gone online game. As an alternative, Deadline stories that Outlander’s Sam Heughan has been chosen to fill the saddle on St. John’s beloved motorbike.
At the moment there may be nothing official. Sony hasn’t made any bulletins, nor have any of the events talked about within the preliminary report, so at this level it’s pretty much as good as a hearsay. That mentioned, Deadline has a good monitor report and it’s not past the realm of potentialities for Sony to take one other of its franchises and throw it up on the large display screen. If Gran Turismo can get a film, Days Gone definitely can.
It’s an odd one, although. Days Gone was properly acquired but additionally confronted its justifiable share of criticism, a lot in order that Bend Studio was denied the chance to develop a Days Gone sequel. The studio has since moved onto one other venture, which we nonetheless know little or no about, and Days Gone has been left in storage. Might a profitable film probably result in a Days Gone 2? Or is Sony already eying up its personal The Strolling Useless-style collection that would spawn from the movie?
