Amazon Prime Video Is 'In Talks' To Create A God Of War Live-Action TV Series
| Last updated
PlayStation's epic game God of War could soon be adapted for a live-action TV series.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Amazon Prime is honing in on bringing the video game to the small screen, according to Deadline.
The news outlet reports that the series adaptation could come fromThe Expanse creators/executive producers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby.
The Wheel of Time executive producer and showrunner Rafe Judkins has also been rumoured to be in talks to be involved.
If these rumours are true, they'll pair with Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions, who collaborate on all TV series based around PlayStation games.
Representatives for Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios have so far declined to comment.
But, if God of War makes it to production, it will join The Last of Us and Twisted Metal as the latest PlayStation games to get the live-action TV treatment.
The Last of Us is headed to HBO and Twisted Metal is set for Peacock.
But Amazon has proven that it can take epic fantasy stories and games and turn them into compelling, live-action TV; just look at Wheel of Time.
It was originally a mammoth 14-part book series written by fantasy writer Robert Jordan, before it was made into a first-person shooter video game. Now it has reached its final form: a fantasy epic on Amazon Prime.
And for those of you who haven't played God of War before, PlayStation describes the epic action-adventure game as this:
“Starting with the release of ‘God of War’ in 2005 on PlayStation 2, Santa Monica Studio has created seven games across multiple platforms.
"Up to the most recent release in 2018, the franchise focused on Kratos’ journey in the Greek world, following a path of vengeance as a result of being tricked into killing his family by the Olympian gods.
"Now, living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father.
"Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfil a deeply personal quest.”
So, if you're a fan of mythology, adventure, mystery, or fantasy, this will be right up your alley.
Plus, God of War: Ragnarök the much-anticipated follow-up is coming in 2022, so there's no better time to jump on the bandwagon.
