    Hit video game ‘Death Stranding’ to be made into movie

    TOKYO (AFP) – The acclaimed action game Death Stranding will be adapted for the silver screen, according to its Japanese creator Hideo Kojima, who will co-produce the film through his company.

    Kojima called the decision “a pivotal moment for the franchise” in a statement, three years after the video game’s much-hyped 2019 release.

    United States (US) film production company Hammerstone Studios will make the film in tandem with Kojima Productions, recently tweeted an article by Deadline about the project along with a string of emojis including a thumbs-up and a dolphin.

    Kojima also posted on social media about the article, in which he was quoted as saying he “couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership”. The PlayStation and PC game Death Stranding is set in a post-apocalyptic future where the US are no longer united, and a curious form of rainfall accelerates ageing.

    It features an A-list voice cast including Norman Reedus from TV drama The Walking Dead, and James Bond stars Lea Seydoux and Mads Mikkelsen.
