MOVIE NEWS – It seems that it will respect the wishes of its original author and take the action to the Moscow metro.
The Russian company Gazprom Media, one of the most powerful media groups in Russia, has taken over the rights to the Metro 2033 work to convert it, again, into a movie. The work of Dmitry Glukhovsky, very famous in the world of videogames thanks to the work of 4A Games and THQ Nordic, has made numerous attempts to jump to the big screen, but conflicts between the producers and the author have made the project impossible on few occasions.
According to the statements collected by the Hollywood Reporter portal in recent hours, Glukhovsky has explained that “Metro 2033 is my first novel. It played a very special role in my life and, despite receiving numerous offers to turn it into a movie, I rejected them for more than 10 years. I finally met a team that I can trust Metro. Our ambitions turned out to be similar: create a world-class blockbuster and even stun those who have read the trilogy and know it by heart. ”
The production will be carried out by Valery Fedorovich, who highlighted the importance of the novel and the Metro saga in the culture of contemporary science fiction. He did not hesitate to describe the project as “a dream come true,” and the start of filming was confirmed on January 1, 2020. The expected release date for the film is the year 2022. It remains to be patient to know what plans await Russian production.
