While we tend to focus on Sony’s video games business, the acquisition Bungie can be a big help for Sony’s photo. Life, in particular, has high multimedia potential, and Sony wants to help Bungie make that happen by turning its franchise into a movie. While no specific plans have been announced, a recent earnings call saw Sony commenting on the possibility of bringing Bungie IPs to the silver screen.
What movie does Sony want the Bungie franchise to be?
During an earnings Q&A and Q&A call, Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki was asked what the company plans to do with Bungie. He replied:
It’s not just for the gaming sector, it’s also about the use of multiple IPs and the trade of IPs – just like a game title could be included in a movie. Bungie wants to nurture the IP they have in a multidimensional way and that is their hope. For that, we believe we can help – we have Sony Pictures and Sony Music, and Bungie can leverage our platform so their IP can grow and thrive .
The most obvious of Bungie’s IPs for film adaptation is Destiny. The Destiny universe will certainly benefit in itself as well as a means of countering the continued obstruction of the MCU/Disney Star Wars. Guardians is like a cross between superheroes and soldiers of the Confederacy, and done right a Destiny movie can certainly appeal to a large audience.
So, besides Destiny, what else is there? Halo goes without saying, and among its remaining IPs, there are two hot spots for a movie adaptation: Oni and Marathon. Either of these two series would make for a great movie, but I’d almost say that Sony only really cares about Destiny.
There has been no official announcement regarding the Destiny movie or TV show. However, we will bet on a match coming up within the next few years.
