The film is made by the director of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and will be relased on Netflix, which successfully adapted The Witcher.
Surprises continue in the territory of video game adaptations for film and television. Netflix today announced the commissioning of a Beyond Good & Evil movie, Ubisoft‘s long-remembered sci-fi adventure, seeking to have Rob Letterman, director of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, for the project.
The feature film is currently in a very early stage of development, looking for scriptwriters to adapt the story of this classic, so for now there are only a few details about the film. Yes, it has been said that it will be a hybrid animation and live action film, something in which Letterman already has experience after the success of Pokémon in 2019, with $ 433 million at the box office .
Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin will be the producers of the film for Ubisoft Film & Television, a division of the French company that seems to have enough work for the coming years, as it was also reported yesterday that Netflix would be interested in an animated series of Splinter Cell with screenwriter John Wick.
Beyond Good and Evil launched on the market in 2003 without much success, buti t made a lot of players fall in love with the story in which Jade, a photo reporter, has to fight an implacable alien threat, joining forces with Zerdy, an anthropomorphic pig already who’s already an icon of the video game industry.
The announcement of the film comes in a moment of silence around its continuation, Beyond Good and Evil 2, which was missing from the French company’s Ubisoft Forward, although a few months ago its release for this fiscal year was already ruled out.
Back to Netflix: the streaming platform announced this week The Witcher: Blood Origin, a new series from the Geralt of Rivia universe, set 1,200 years before the events of the original series, following the story of the first Witcher.
