PlayStation Productions has a Days Gone film in the works with Outlander actor Sam Heughan lined up to play Deacon St. John, a new report from Deadline claims. The article says Sheldon Turner is adapting the game for the big screen, an Oscar-nominated scribe with credits on The Longest Yard and X-Men: First Class.
The script will be "a love ballad to motorcycle movies; the bike being Deacon’s sole form of transportation, his horse in this would-be, modern-day western". If true — which it probably is coming from a reputable source like Deadline — then the Days Gone movie will join Ghost of Tsushima and Gran Turismo films as well as The Last of Us, Twisted Metal, God of War, Horizon, and Gran Turismo TV shows as upcoming projects from PlayStation Productions.
It's an especially interesting choice from Sony considering the company decided not to green-light a sequel to the 2019 original game. Instead, Sony Bend is making a new IP after its pitch was rejected. For more information on All PlayStation Productions Movies and TV Shows, click the link. How do you react to this news?
