Chad Stahelski, the director of the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie adaptation, says the team is progressing carefully with the movie.
In an interview with IGN, Stahelski gave a little update to the movie’s early development stage.
“We just want to do it right. You know how video game adaptations can go,” Stahelski said. “So we’re taking our time and doing it right. We’re working very closely with the game developers to make sure we stick to what’s great about it.”
Other than this, the director hasn’t shared anything else about the film. They’re currently writing the script and say that fans will be “happy with what we’re working on.” When casting came up, Stahelski said that they “haven’t gotten that far yet.”
Of course, that’s when fan casting comes in. Daisuke Tsuje, who played Jin Sakai in the game, is a person most fans wonder about. He probably should star in the movie to reprise the role, but it’s unclear whether he’ll join or not.
Ghost of Tsushima announced its official film adaptation in early 2021, with Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions behind it. Sucker Punch Productions, the original studio for the game, is also behind production as the executive producer.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Chad and 87Eleven Entertainment, to bring their vision of Jin’s story to the big screen. We love working with creative partners like Chad, who have a passion for our games, ensuring we can create rich adaptations that will excite our fans and new audiences,” said Asad Qizilbash, Head of PlayStation Productions.
