A news that obviously comes to us from the specialized media Deadline, accustomed to this kind of indiscretion behind the scenes of the Hollywood film industry. The American publication thus affirms that the adaptation of Streets of Rage would again be the fruit of the partnership between SEGA and dj2 Entertainment as for the films Sonic The Hedgehog, this time supported by the company Escape Artists. The writing of the film would have been entrusted to Derek Kolstad, the creator of the license John Wickwhich would have sent a script we spec to SEGA and dj2 Entertainment, in other words a scenario proposal sent without having been requested beforehand by the production.
The cartoon of the adventures of sonic in the cinema is no doubt no stranger to this initiative and dj2 Entertainment seems determined to multiply video game adaptation projects, as evidenced by the recent agreement concluded between the production company and Amazon for the production of adaptations of It Takes Two for television and film. Derek Kolstad is not the only member of the team behind the saga John Wick to have invested in a project of this nature since, let us recall, his comrade Chad Stahelski is working on a film Ghost of Tsushima on behalf of Sony and PlayStation Productions.
Finally, in a completely different register but still in Hollywood, we also learned this morning that actor Jason Momoa was about to sign a definitive agreement to appear in the cast of the film adaptation of Minecraft. A film announced eight years ago by Notch himself, postponed many times – partly because of the Covid-19 pandemic – and which would therefore finally be on the right track.
