Best-selling video game Death Stranding is to be developed as a live-action feature from A24 and Japanese creator Hideo Kojima.

No cast or director has yet been revealed but a statement from Kojima Productions said: “The film promises to delve into the mysteries surrounding the apocalyptic event called the ‘Death Stranding’, which blurred the lines between life and death, and brought forth nightmarish creatures into a world on the brink of collapse.”

The 2019 action game was developed by Kojima Productions and has since sold more than 16 million copies. The game is set in America after an apocalyptic incident, where destructive creatures start to roam the Earth. A sequel to the game is also in development.

The announcement of the film comes ahead of Kojima Productions’ eighth anniversary on December 16. Kojima is one of the most celebrated video game auteurs. He founded the company after separating from Konami, the gaming studio where he worked for

Metal gear Solid and other high-profile games. In 2020, he was awarded a Bafta Fellowship. “There are many ‘game adaptation movies’ out there, but what we’re creating is not a simple translation of the game,” stated Kojima. The intention is to reach out to all cinema lovers, not just fans of video games. We are creating a

Death Stranding universe that has never been seen before, achievable only through the medium of film.”US-based indie studio A24 won seven Oscars earlier this year with

Everything Everywhere All At Once, awards contender Past Lives and acclaimed Netflix series Beef. Its current slate includes The Iron Claw starring Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White, Mother Mary starring Anne Hathaway and Michaela Coel, Dream Scenario starring Nicolas Cage, The Zone Of Interest from Jonathan Glazer and The Sympathizer starring Robert Downey Jr. from director Park Chan-Wook.“This business needs a shake-up”: outgoing FDA president David Puttnam calls for radical change in UK industry
