PlayStation Productions continues to mine its back catalogue, with the post-apocalyptic zombie horde title Days Gone seemingly next in line.
Reports tell that PlayStation didn’t love the reception to Bend Studio’s zombie action title, Days Gone which released back in 2019. There’s a whole story there but the upshot is that the publisher didn’t deem the title worthy of a sequel. However, that hasn’t stopped PlayStation’s film production arm from planning a movie adaptation of the post-apocalyptic action game that sees a lone biker take on countless hordes of zombies.
Reports over the weekend are suggesting that Oscar-nominated writer Sheldon Turner is penning the script, whilst Outlander star Sam Heughan will take on the lead role of the brilliantly-named Deacon St. John, the gruff biker with a secret heart of gold. The game’s story is ‘set in the Pacific Northwest after a devastating global pandemic, Days Gone follows former motorcycle club member Deacon St. John as he fights to survive against mutated, predatory humans in his quest to find the long lost, presumed dead, love of his life.’
We’re losing track of the amount of PlayStation adaptations that are said to be on the way but we know there’s a TV version of The Last Of Us coming, along with an Uncharted sequel too. Apparently, there are also adaptations of Gran Turismo, Jak And Daxter, Ghost Of Tsushima and perhaps even God Of War and Horizon Zero Dawn on the way too. Phew! It’s an ambitious slate and we’ll bring you more on these projects, including Days Gone as we hear it.
