Ghost of Tsushima movie director says ‘we’re taking our time to do it right’
The film is currently in preproduction
The director of the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie has said that he wants to “do it right”.
In a new interview with IGN, which took place on the red carpet for The Matrix: Resurrections, Chad Stahelski said: “You know how video game adaptions can go. 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.”
While the filmmaker conceded that the crew are still in the early stages of production, and have yet to finalise a script, he assured fans of the series that players: “Would be very happy with what we’re working on.”
Stahelski is best known for directing the John Wick films.
Released on August 20, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut included a number of new additions to the original 2020 PS4 release, including a new Iki Island expansion and several PS5-only features.
In VGC’s Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut review, we called the game “the perfect excuse to go back to the island,” adding: “The game has never looked better, and now stands toe-to-toe with the other Sony tentpoles on the platform.
“While the gameplay changes aren’t enough to shake the nagging feelings or repetitiveness, engaging combat and a well-told story are more than enough reasons to play through the game again.”
This isn’t the only PlayStation franchise currently being adapted for the big, or small screen. Naughty Dog‘s The Last of Us is currently being adapted into a series for HBO.
Game of Thrones actors Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey are portraying the show’s lead characters, Joel and Ellie. Nico Parker (Dumbo), the daughter of actress Thandie Newton, is playing Joel’s daughter Sarah, while Gabriel Luna (Agents of Shield) stars as Joel’s brother Tommy.
