The popular gaming sequel Death Stranding will appear for a filming adaptation according to The Game Awards 2022. The adaptation will depict Kojima, producing the film in parallel with Alex Lebovici’s Hammerstone Productions, which later it has financed the project. Lebovici’s rememberable credits contain this year’s horror movie Barbarian and also casting Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgard, and Justin Long.
One of the most interesting facts is Lebovici has been credited as the executive producer of 2018’s unofficial Uncharted and live-action short featuring Nathan Fillion like Nathan Drake.
The new reports have confirmed about the plot going to introduce some new elements and characters for the Death Stranding universe. Now, things are really not clear while the existing characters going to play by the same actors just seen in the game. It includes Norman Reedus, Lea Seydoux, Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsay Wagner, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Margaret Qualley.
Things might be strange, but all discussions put an end as they are all very much familiar with shooting live-action movies.
In an official statement, Hideo Kojima said, “ I couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership with Hammerstone Studios. This is a pivotal moment for the franchise and I’m looking forward to collaborating with them in bringing DEATH STRANDING to the big screen.”
Alex Lebovici included,” We are thrilled and honoured to have the opportunity to partner with brilliant and iconic Hideo Kojima on his first film adaptation. Unlike other big-budget tentpole video game adaptations, this will be something far more intimate and grounded. Our goal is to redefine what a video game adaptation could be when you have creative and artistic freedom. This film will be an authentic “Hideo Kojima” production.”
Kojima has also appeared in a long video message to celebrate the seventh anniversary of Kojima Productions. He showed the new office and confirmed another game is in production along with ‘visual products.’
