God Of War TV Series Steps Closer To Reality As Sony Confirms Multiple Live-Action Projects
| Last updated
The Uncharted movie and HBO's The Last of Us seem to not be the only PlayStation video games that are being adapted for live-action.
Sony Pictures, the TV and film production division of the behemoth that is the Sony Corporation, has just confirmed that it will be turning multiple classic franchises into TV shows and films.
Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra confirmed to CNBC that the studio is working on no less than three movies and seven TV shows, all based on original PlayStation IPs.
The CEO added that we can expect to see the company leaning more heavily on its established brands going forward, and that all starts with this kind of lovely game-to-film synergy.
No specific plan has been outlined yet about which specific games have been selected for the movies and TV shows, but the company called, 'One Sony', said: "You'll be seeing a lot more integration of Sony companies together."
This move shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone who's been paying attention.
Last year, Sony established PlayStation Productions with the specific purpose of adapting various PlayStation IPs for film and TV. The Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland is just the beginning of what Sony clearly hopes will grow into a Marvel-level cinematic endeavour.
As for what IPs Sony could be adapting as we speak? It's impossible to say at this stage, though there are obvious contenders.
Fans have been desperate to see a gritty God Of War series for years now, and even 2018's God Of War director Cory Barlog backed the idea of a Netflix-style series starring Kratos and Atreus.
That'd definitely be a no-brainer. Considering God Of War was also 2018's Game of the Year, it would be silly not to take this on.
It also wouldn't be surprising to see some kind of Ratchet & Clank series aimed at a younger audience.
The 2016 animated movie was a great laugh, so more of that kind of thing definitely wouldn't go amiss. Beyond that, perhaps we'll get even more Uncharted to keep us entertained - maybe a spinoff show to accompany the film that stars an older Nathan Drake... perhaps played by Nathan Fillion?
It's early days, of course, so we'll have to wait and see. Heck, for all we know Uncharted and HBO's The Last Of Us might end up being completely awful...
