Another popular Sony PlayStation game is making steps towards becoming a movie. According to Deadline, Sony PlayStation Productions is developing a feature-length version of Days Gone.
Released in 2019, the action-adventure game is set in the Pacific Northwest after a global pandemic, and casts players in the role of former biker Deacon St. John, as he rides to survive against all odds, reunites with the love of his life, and kills tons of zombies. The movie version will come from a script by Sheldon Turner, who wrote 2011’s X-Men: First Class (and also more recently reportedly did a rewrite on the Road House reboot starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor McGregor for Prime Video), and is also reportedly attached to be writing the live-action Splinter Cell film. Sam Heughan (Outlander) is reportedly attached to play Deacon.
Deadline reports that 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.”
