Ghost of Tsushima (buy now) is set in 13th century Japan and tells of the conflict between the samurai and the conquering Mongolian troops under Khotun Khan. The title character is the samurai Jin, who realizes that his people have no chance against the Mongols with normal combat tactics. Therefore, he looks for allies outside the warrior caste and leaves the honorable path of the samurai to instead take action against the invaders from the shadows and with deceitful methods. The look and history of the game are mainly inspired by the works of the master director Akira Kurosawa, who has significantly shaped the samurai cinema. His works include Rashomon and The Seven Samurai.

With Chad Stahelski, an absolute action specialist takes on the project. The stuntman (The Crow, The Matrix), fight scene choreographer (300, Van Helsing), stunt coordinator (Serenity, The Mechanic, Birds of Prey) and director (John Wick) is still working on the fourth part of the John Wick Line . A Highlander reboot, which Stahelski will direct, has also been announced since 2017. The status of the project is not known, however.

Sony and Sucker Punch’s PlayStation 4 hit Ghost of Tsushima is being adapted into a movie with John Wick director Chad Stahelski at the helm, Deadline first reported on Thursday. Sony confirmed the film’s development in a blog shortly after.

The game, which stars samurai warrior Jin Sakai as he fights a huge Mongol army to protect the island of Tsushima, is heavily inspired by classic samurai films like those from Akira Kurosawa, so it seems like natural fit for the big screen.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Chad and 87Eleven Entertainment, to bring their vision of Jin’s story to the big screen,” said Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions, in a statement to Deadline. “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.”

“We are happy to partner with Sony Pictures to make this happen,” Nate Fox, game director at Sucker Punch, said in a statement on the PlayStation blog. “And Jin is in very good hands with the film’s director. Chad Stahelski created something special with John Wick. His vision for what could be, backed up by years of experience, combined to create some of the finest action scenes ever created. If anyone could bring to life the razor-sharp tension of Jin’s katana combat, it’s Chad Stahelski.” Fox also confirmed that the Ghost of Tsushima game has sold 6.5 million copies since its release last July.

Ghost of Tsushima is Sony’s latest game franchise to be adapted into a movie. Tom Holland is starring as Nathan Drake in a movie adaption of the Indiana Jones-like Uncharted series that’s set to release on February 11th, 2022. Sony’s upcoming big-screen take on Metal Gear Solid will star Oscar Isaac as Solid Snake.

Sony is also working on a TV adaptation of The Last of Us for HBO, which will star The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey, known for her role as Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones, as Ellie.
