Today, Kojima Productions announced a partnership with studio A24 on their upcoming Death Stranding live-action movie. The live-action movie was announced a year ago by original video game creator Hideo Kojima. However, now they will work with A24 to bring the immersive world to life. A24 is mostly known for its extremely niche Oscar-caliber films like Everything Everywhere All at Once and next year’s Civil War. Now, they will move into more of a blockbuster space with this calibration. Hideo Kojima spoke on the partnership:
“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. 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 8 years. Now, we are making a Death Stranding movie together. There are a lot of “game adaptation films” out there but what we are creating is not just a direct translation of the game. The intention is that our audience will not only be fans of the games, but our film will be for anyone who loves cinema. We are creating a Death Stranding universe that has never been seen before, achievable only through the medium of film, it will be born.”
No writer or director has been attached yet to the project. A24 also only releases their projects in the US and sells the rights to release interntionally. Currently, no international studio has been announced for the project.
