John Wick director’s film has its screenwriter

Game News

Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions entrust the writing of the Ghost of Tsushima film to Takashi Doscher. A chambara expert and player since childhood.

Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions don’t want to rush and rush the Ghost of Tsushima movie. As a result, the adaptation is progressing slowly but surely, and she has just found her screenwriter. It will be Takashi Doscher, a more confidential filmmaker, who will team up with director Chad Stahelski (John Wick).

Takashi Doscher writing Ghost of Tsushima

To support Chad Stahelski (John Wick), in charge of transposing the universe created by Sucker Punch on the big screen, Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions have turned to independent cinema. The two entities have indeed set their sights on Takashi Doscher. The young man notably directed Only in which he was able to direct Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Planet of the Apes).

But if he was hired as a screenwriter for the movie Ghost of Tsushima, it’s probably because of his passions. In response to the Deadline article which revealed the news, he protested his love for chambara and video games.

I grew up watching chambara reruns with my grandparents. I skipped school to pick up the PS2 on launch day. To say that this project is the highlight of my career is an understatement. I am honored and touched. Arigato-gozaimasu (thank you).

It goes without saying that if the film Ghost of Tsushima is successful, it will be a big boost for his career.

As a reminder, Chad Stahelski, Alex Young and Jason Spitz will produce the feature film with their company 87Eleven Entertainment. Asad Qizilbash, producer with Carter Swan at PlayStation Productions, commented:

He’s a great talent and a huge fan of the game. I’m very excited about this film.

It is unclear who will be cast in the lead role. But if ever Sony Pictures is up for it, the Jin Sakai actor can reproduce the scenes where he bathes naked in the hot springs.

In order to discover the original work, Ghost of Tsushima and its Director’s Cut version are available on PS5 and PS4.
