A movie adaptation of the best-selling video game Ghost of Tsushima has just been announced.
Firstly, have you played Ghost of Tsushima? I got completely hooked on it. The beautiful samurai-era Japan, galloping your horse through endless beautiful blossom trees. I said this recently on a social media post that “Ghost of Tsushima is so damn gorgeous to look at, you forget you have to behead and destroy the Mongolian army”.
As a fan of samurai movies, I was more than delighted to see that I could play the game in the Japanese language with English subtitles. There is also an option to play the game in black and white. You 100% feel like you’ve become an old-school samurai warrior from an Akira Kurosawa movie. It seems like the creators were huge samurai movies fans and Ghost of Tsushima was their love letter to the genre. The creators of the game were also recently appointed official tour guides of Tsushima Island in Japan.
John Wick director Chad Stahelski has been attached to direct
There’s no doubt Stahelski can do epic violence – we have seen it in the John Wick movies, but I am a little worried. I will still watch the fuck out of it but with Stahelski involved, will Hollywood big execs be involved too?. How authentic will it be? how many Asian and Mongolian actors will be hired for the roles? I hope I am wrong because it really deserves the authenticity that the game got so brilliantly right.
Only time will tell!. As soon as we hear more news I will make sure to update the article. As always, thanks for reading.
