A Sony spokesperson has mentioned that opposite to hypothesis, the corporate isn’t engaged on a God of War film or tv present.
This tidbit of info was revealed in the identical New York Times article that comprises a photo of a mustache-less Mark Wahlberg as Sully in the upcoming Uncharted movie (we don’t fairly perceive that one both). Sony apparently appears eager to adapt some of its massive franchises for films and TV. God of War makes essentially the most sense right here, so by no means say by no means.
“I have witnessed a radical shift in the nature of cooperation between different parts of the company,” Sony film president, Sanford Panitch, advised The NY Times. The government acknowledged that “video game movies have a checkered history.” However, he believes that “failure is the mother of invention.”
“It’s a question of balance,” added Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Asad Qizilbash. “We have three objectives. Grow audience size for games. Bring product to Sony Pictures. Showcase collaboration. It’s risky, but I think we can do it.”
Michael Jonathan Smith, who’s engaged on Twisted Metal TV collection, believes that it’s “not just about adapting the story, it’s about adapting how you feel when you play the game.” “It has to be about characters you care about. And then you can slide in the Easter eggs and story points that get fans absolutely pumped,” he continued.
Panitch argues that fashionable online game tales are way more developed and superior than they was, making the case for film and TV diversifications even stronger.
