Death Stranding movie based on Hideo Kojima video game in the works

Following the announcement (via Deadline), Kojima said, “I couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership,” calling it a “defining moment for the franchise.” Lebovici added that he was “thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to work with the brilliant and legendary Hideo Kojima on his first film adaptation,” promising it would be an “authentic Hideo Kojima production.”

Although the film is expected to adapt elements from the Death Stranding game, the plot may be completely different. New features and characters within the same universe will be introduced, although the overall storyline is being kept under wraps for now.

Still, we can expect the world to still be left to perish after a cataclysmic event known as “Death Stranding,” with those from the afterlife now roaming the planet, potentially putting an end to humanity once and for all . Whether or not the game’s protagonist, Sam Bridges, will be featured remains to be seen and could depend on the availability of actor Norman Reedus after he brings the character to life on console.

Death Stranding has garnered numerous awards since its initial release in 2019 before releasing a director’s cut in 2021. Last week at The Game Awards 2022, it was announced that a PlayStation 5 sequel is in development, with Kojima returning to oversee the project. With over 10 million players having jumped into the game since launch, many will be hoping for a movie to reflect that success.

In other news, after Henry Cavill’s Superman was fired, World of Warcraft fans want him as Arthas, and a Steam Deck 2 has been confirmed, likely a Steam Controller 2 as well.
