In the past year, Sony has proven to be making exponential progress on delivering for its video game film division, PlayStation Pictures. For one example, the approaching Tom Holland Uncharted film has already concluded filming as the project now moves on to post-production. Additionally, the cast for the upcoming The Last of Us HBO series already casted Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal for the lead duo, Ellie & Joel respectively.
But, the projects do not stop there. Elsewhere recently, PlayStation Pictures when speaking to Variety revealed that the previously reported Twisted Metal TV show just recently picked up Deadpool & Zombieland writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. And now, it appears a new production surfaced in a recent report that arrived on Thursday.
