Death Stranding fans have had something to be delighted about for the past few days. In addition to the announcement of Death Stranding 2 during the Game Awards evening, Hideo Kojima, the director of Kojima Productions, also recently announced that he is preparing a film based on his franchise.
However, despite the greatness of his first game, he said the film will not be "a Hollywood blockbuster".
The Death Stranding movie will not be a blockbuster
Fully funded by Barbarian executive producer Alex Lebovici's Hammerstone Studios and produced by Kojima and Lebovici, the Death Stranding film is now highly anticipated by fans of the franchise, and while we hope to see Norman Reedus and Léa Seydoux appear, it seems that the main producer is on a completely different track ...
It was to Deadline that Alex Lebovici made some statements, announcing that the film will be " much more intimate and grounded in reality " than other big budget game adaptations, and a little later, Hideo Kojima backed up his claims with IGN .
Sam and Fragile absent from the film?
Moreover, our producer still does not know at the time of writing whether or not he will introduce the main characters of the game like Sam Porter Bridges (Norman Reedus) or Fragile (Léa Seydoux).
According to him, he made Death Stranding a game, and "games are games", so he wants to take a whole new direction for the film format and inspire those who will watch it. For that, it does not see itself using all the codes present in its title, and we must admit for us that it is becoming more and more difficult to know what this famous film will give... But we can't wait!
