As the trend continues to form a larger pattern, Netflix further fuels the pipeline for more video game-oriented entertainment on its streaming platform. This past week, Sega alongside Netflix unveiled the previously leaked 3D animated Sonic the Hedgehog show, Sonic Prime. However, the firm still has plenty more it plans to capitalize on in the realm of video games heading forward.
In a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, Tomb Raider is said to receive an anime series. More interesting is that the project has already casted a writer – Tasha Huo. If not familiar, Huo is also the executive producer for the upcoming The Witcher prequel series, Blood Origin. Alike the anime, details on when both shows are still left unanswered currently.
Huo alongside writing the script will also be an executive producer for the production as well being accompanied by dj2 Entertainment’s CEO Dmitri M. Johnson, Howard Bliss and Robinson, and Stephan Bugaj. The Hollywood Reporter relays that the coming anime will not hold any significance to the currently ongoing film series starring Alicia Vikander.
In relations to Tomb Raider on the live-action realm of film, the sequel featuring the Ex Machina actress is left unscheduled for a box office release. Previously, the film was set to hit theater this March, but was pulled following rescheduling by Warner Bros. and MGM. For now, the motion picture is left undated as of this past October.
Similarly to what we found with Tomb Raider recently, there is also another video game anime underway. In that, Variety reported Splinter Cell is expecting an anime series as well. John Wick Writer Derek Kolstad is told to be involved with two seasons scheduled for the unannounced series. You can read the full report by heading here.
