Ghost Of Tsushima Movie Has Been Confirmed
A Ghost of Tsushima movie is officially on its way.
The news was confirmed by PlayStation via their blog, and it sounds like it's going to be one hell of a film. It's going to be directed by John Wick's Chad Stahelski.
Nate Fox, Game Director at Sucker Punch Productions, said: "A Ghost of Tsushima movie is in the works! The idea of translating our game into a new medium is exciting, and we’re intrigued by the possibilities. We’ve all been brought to tears in a movie theater surrounded by strangers. (Thanks a lot, E.T.) We’ve all gone to a movie on opening night when the crowd is so excited that they cheer as the lights go down. It’s a group experience that isn’t replicated anywhere else. To think that we could sit in the theater someday watching Jin Sakai up on the big screen is amazing. We’d all relive his tense transformation into the Ghost from a whole new vantage point."
He then added that they are working with Sony Pictures to make it happen, and then revealed the director: "Jin is in very good hands with the film’s director. Chad Stahelski created something special with John Wick. His vision for what could be, backed up by years of experience, combined to create some of the finest action scenes ever created. If anyone could bring to life the razor-sharp tension of Jin’s katana combat, it’s Chad Stahelski."
He confirmed that Ghost of Tsushima has had incredible success with more than 6.5 million copies sold, and that roughly half of those people have made it all the way through the game.
"As a newly appointed ambassador for the real Island of Tsushima, I’d like to formally say- visit when it’s safe to, if you get a chance. The island is beautiful, the people are warm, and the history is all around you. If you’re very, very lucky you’ll spot a Tsushima Cat. Then later, when the Ghost of Tsushima movie comes out, you can tell your friends about how you’ve been to the beach where the Mongols landed," he added.
"I know I speak for everyone at Sucker Punch by sending out a massive THANK YOU to Ghost fans. Your support for the game is what makes opportunities like a movie come true. It’s been a sincere pleasure checking out your photo-mode images posted online and fighting alongside you in Legends. We’re so happy to be on this ride with you."
