Story Highlight
  • Sony has recently increased its focus on live-action adaptations, with Ghost of Tsushima being one of the movies in development.
  • According to leaks, Hiroyuki Sanada could be set to star in this movie.
  • The actor would be perfect for the movie due to his experience with Japanese roles.

Sony appears to have significantly increased its focus on live-action adaptations of its blockbuster franchises. Several adaptations are reportedly in development, including God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, and more.

Although details about these adaptations have been limited, it has recently been reported that Hiroyuki Sanada, the actor from the Shogun series, is in talks for a role in the Ghost of Tsushima movie.

Why it matters: Ghost of Tsushima has become one of PlayStation’s flagship franchises, thanks to Sucker Punch Productions’ exceptional work on the game’s mechanics, visuals, and compelling narrative.

This information comes via DanielRPK, a leaker known to share information on the film and TV industry.

If these talks lead to an agreement, Hiroyuki Sanada’s casting could be perfect. His extensive experience portraying characters from Feudal Japan makes him a perfect fit for the film.

While it’s unclear what role he might be in talks for, many speculate that he could be cast as Lord Shimura, given his striking resemblance to the character. This speculation is something many fans can support.

Hiroyuki Sanada is an incredible actor who has done a phenomenal job in every role he has been cast for. Therefore, he would prove to be a major asset to this film, especially since it hopes to be an authentic recreation of Sucker Punch Productions’ work.

Apart from Shogun, the actor has recently shined in roles like Scorpion from 2021’s Mortal Kombat.

The Ghost of Tsushima franchise seems to have a bright future. A sequel to the first entry is reportedly in development and expected to be revealed this year, highlighting the IP’s growth.

Since the game’s incredible recent debut on PC, which has garnered much praise from fans, Ghost of Tsushima has gained a whole new audience. Therefore, the film adaptation will likely benefit from this new audience.

Hiroyuki Sanada appears to be a perfect fit for the franchise. While we suggest taking this information with a slight pinch of salt, we find ourselves even more excited about this adaptation after this report.
