Sony has opened a film studio for the film adaptation of PlayStation exclusives

Sony Interactive Entertainment has founded its own studio, which will produce films based on games.

What is known

The division was nicknamed PlayStation Productions, andIt was headed by Assad Kizilbash, vice president of marketing at SIE. The project will be overseen by company chairman Sean Layden. According to Kizilbash, developers from Sony will be better able to produce TV series and films based on PlayStation games, because they know what the audience wants.

“Instead of licensing our IPs tostudios, we realized that the best option would be to develop and produce in-house. Firstly, because we are more familiar with the source material, and secondly, we know what the PlayStation community loves,” says Kizilbash.

PlayStation Productions executivesThey didn’t say which of the exclusive projects would be the first to appear on film, but they hinted that a couple of films were already in production. Layden and Kizilbash also noted that the format will depend on the story. Thus, the imagination of the writers can turn God of War into a series, and turn Uncharted into a blockbuster competing with Tomb Raider.

“The real problem is howtranslate 80 hours of gameplay into a movie? The answer is no way. You need to take the spirit and write specifically for the audience. Don’t try to retell the game in a movie,” Layden said.

Let us remember that Sony is already producing a film based on Uncharted.
