Deadline reports that Amazon is currently in negotiations with PlayStation over a live action God of the war TV shows.
The report comes from Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva. Apparently Amazon wants The extent creators Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby involved. The sources also name The wheel of time showrunner Rafe Judkins as seal.
If a deal were to materialize, it would be the latest in a series of projects for PlayStation Productions. It currently has a television adaptation of The last of us with Pedro Pascal in production at HBO. Another PlayStation property, twisted metalrecently found a home in Peacock and a star in Anthony Mackie.
Unexploredin cinemas now, marks PlayStation’s first official leap to the big screen.
Everything is still very early. It’s unclear if the show would follow the plot of the original games or the PS4 reboot. There’s also no word on a potential casting at this point. That said, I think we’d be sad if current Kratos actor Christopher Judge didn’t get at least one guest appearance. His nuanced performance redefined the character. It’s hard to imagine a production that doesn’t involve Judge to some degree.
For us, the sure value of a God of the war adaptation would be 2018’s reboot. It was critically acclaimed, adored by fans, and a TV series would be a practical tie-in with God of War Ragnarokstill in production at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio.
Amazon Prime Video is no stranger to game adaptations. The Legend of Vox Machina, the animated adaptation of Critical Role’s beloved Dungeons & Dragons campaign, has proven hugely popular for the streaming giant. That he’s hungry for more makes sense.
