Death Stranding Movie is on the way
Death Stranding is a controversial yet successful game developed by Kojima Productions. Aside from controversies by Death Stranding, A24 has partnered with Kojima Productions to bring the live action Death Stranding Movie to life. A24 is a American Film and TV production company known from Oscar winning Everything Everywhere All At Once and Ex Machina.
“A24 was born into this world about 10 years ago, their presence is singular within the industry, they are like no other. The films they are delivering to the world are high in quality and very innovative,” Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima said following the announcement.
“I have been attracted to their creations and they have even inspired my own work. Their innovative approach to storytelling aligns with what Kojima Productions has been doing for the last eight years. Now, we are making a Death Stranding movie together.”
The creator acknowledged the swathe of video game adaptations that have either released or been announced to be in the pipeline. However, according to Kojima, this Death Stranding adaptation will be more than just a “direct translation” of the 2019 PlayStation title.
“The intention is that our audience will not only be fans of the games, but our film will be for anyone who loves cinema,” he said. “We are creating a Death Stranding universe that has never been seen before, achievable only through the medium of film, it will be born.”
We first got wind of this Death Stranding film adaptation back in December last year, when Kojima called it a “pivotal moment” for the series.
The upcoming project was announced soon after the studio announced a Death Stranding sequel was in the works. Currently we don’t have any certain date for Death Stranding 2 and the movie of course. We are looking forward to see new information.
