Sony has made it abundantly clear that it intends to expand the audience for PlayStation’s biggest properties through TV and film adaptations, and sure enough, plans have accelerated with the likes of The Last of Us, Twisted Metal, and Gran Turismo. Beyond that, several other projects are also confirmed to be in development- including, curiously enough, Gravity Rush, a franchise that was never really among Sony’s biggest, and looks unlikely to get a new game instalment at any point in the foreseeable future.
Interestingly enough, at its recent CES 2024 press conference, Sony showcased a few glimpses of the Gravity Rush movie. In a video showcasing its new visualization facility, Torchlight, the company showed off a couple of shots of the film, first showing a female character (who one might presume is Kat, the protagonist of the games) leaping off a skyscraper, with another shot showing her flying downward through the air towards floating island cities that are being attacked by a massive, winged monstrosity. Sandwiched between the two shots was a brief look at behind-the-scenes performance capture work. Take a look below.
Interestingly, the video showcasing Torchlight also showed glimpses of a mystery Patapon project.
Other PlayStation properties that also have adaptations in the works include Ghost of Tsushima, Days Gone, and Gravity Rush, while season 2 of HBO’s The Last of Us is also in the works. Meanwhile, writing is also underway for Amazon Prime’s God of War series and Netflix’s Horizon series.
