Sony is taking action, Zombie Days Gone. In recent years, Sony and Playstation Productions have invested heavily in film adaptations of their popular game series, such as the successful “Uncharted” movie (grossed around $ 400 million ) and upcoming adaptations of “Horizon Zero Dawn” , “The Last of Us” and “God of War” .
Now the site Deadline reveals that the game “Days Gone” from 2019 will also get a movie, which is written by the screenwriter behind “X-Men: First Class”, Sheldon Turner.
The game takes place in northwestern North America where we follow motorcycle gang Deacon St. John, who must survive in a post-apocalyptic world in search of his missing fiancée. According to the report, the film will be a “love ballad to motorcycle movies, as the bike is Deacon’s only means of transportation – his horse in a modern western”.

The producers of the film are also targeting “Outlander” star Sam Heughan to play Deacon St. John, who we also saw in films like “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, “Bloodshot” and the upcoming “Everest” (written by Sheldon Turner).
When “Days Gone” was released, we rated it 4 out of 5 , writing that it “manages to stand out in the zombie genre” and that it “offers an unparalleled journey through a post-apocalyptic inferno”. Since then, the game has also been released for PC.
Other productions that Playstation Productions has in the works are a “Twisted Metal” series with Will Arnett and Anthony Mackie, a “Gran Turismo” series by Neill Blomkamp and a film adaptation of “Ghost of Tsushima” by the director behind “John Wick: Chapter 4”.
