‘Metro 2033’ is Being Made into a Movie…Finally

Published

 on

Metro 2033, the novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky that inspired the eponymous survival horror video game in 2013, is being developed in to a movie according to Variety.

Both the novel and the game focus on the story of a man named Artyom, who survived a nuclear war by hiding in Moscow’s subway system along with many others. The underground system soon becomes a civilization of its own wrought with different factions and mutated beasts who have been addled by the radiation, and the fledgling society hangs by a thread as a result. The game and its sequel Metro: Last Light were both well received, and there will be a lot of expectation for franchise’s expansion on to the silver screen.

The movie will be produced by Michael De Luca, an accomplished producer with three Oscar nominations to his name, Steven L’Heureux and Eugene Efuni, who first brought the project to the attention of his counterparts.

“My novel and I have been waiting for this to happen for the last 10 years,” said Glukhovsky on the project. “I have previously been extremely careful about handing my ‘baby’ over to Hollywood producers for adaption for a feature film, but now I feel that it has landed in the right hands. De Luca and L’Heureux have a great vision for this project, and I feel it’s an honor to work with them.”

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
