Sony Pictures will begin to more intentionally embrace video game franchises produced exclusively for PlayStation consoles.
Sony Pictures’ CEO revealed that after the film dedicated to Uncharted, with Tom Holland in the role of Nathan Drake, the company will begin to integrate all its branches in the development of content for television and cinema.
PlayStation games will give rise to more films and series
On the table are already three new films and seven TV series, all inspired by the main properties of PlayStation.
The projects are the responsibility of PlayStation Productions, a division created precisely to promote and assist the transition from the largest franchises of the console brand to all other types of screens.
Tony Vinciquerra declined to reveal the names of the projects, but a series of The Last of Us has already been commissioned by HBO. Craig Mazin, creator of the Chernobyl series and writer of the Borderlands film, will executive produce the series with the help of Neil Druckmann, creative director at Naughty Dog.
PlayStation movies are to debut in cinema
Contrary to what some of the major studios in the film industry have done, Sony Pictures does not intend to debut these video game-inspired projects on streaming platforms.
Vinciquerra believes it is important to put films in theaters, looking favorably at a 30-day window until they reach services like HBO or Netflix.
The executive believes that, in a normal scenario, cinemas are the place that offers the best experience to people, but that from a financial point of view Sony cannot reject the granting of rights to new platforms, with the advantage of making the even more accessible content.
