Although video games bleeding into other forms of entertainment has been red flaggish since its inception, the medium has slowly gained trust to offer enjoyable releases via television series and film adaptations in the past few years. For Sony, the firm has established a new division solely for this pursuit: PlayStation Pictures.
Already, projects such as Tom Holland’s Uncharted film and HBO’s The Last of Us is already underway. But, there is more to be found. Recently, a report from Variety, Deadpool & Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are indicated to pen the script for the upcoming Twisted Metal television series. Currently, it is unsure when the project is to arrive.
But, with a new image surfacing for 2022’s Uncharted movie, Sony goes on to denounce claims for God of War to tap into other realms of the entertainment market. As per The New York Times, God of War is not part of the vision, “at least not anytime soon,” the publication writes. You can view the new image in the photo below:
As for other plans PlayStation Pictures is preparing for its video game adaptations, Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima is also on the map as well. In that, the production is the newest project underway only being announced back in March. Additionally, it was later insisted by Jin Sakai actor Daisuke Tsuji stated on Twitter to be eager in reprising his role for the theatrical cut – even including the nudity scenes as well.
Regarding God of War, the next game might be further away than anticipated. Although initially presumed to arrive in late 2021, it appears that the release date might be harder to reach according to Bloomberg Tech’s Jason Schreier. You can read the full report by heading here.
