Kojima Productions teaming up with A24 for Death Stranding

Developer Kojima Productions is partnering with film studio A24 for a live-action adaptation of Death Stranding.

This news comes just over four years after the game's initial 2019 release and almost one year to the day since it was first revealed that the title would be coming to the silver screen.

A24 is best known for horror films such as Midsommar and The Witch, but in more recent years has expanded out into indie blockbusters such as Everything Everywhere All at Once.

“A24 was born into this world about 10 years ago, their presence is singular within the industry, they are like no other," Kojima wrote.

"The films they are delivering to the world are high in quality and very innovative. I have been attracted to their creations and they have even inspired my own work. Their innovative approach to storytelling aligns with what Kojima Productions has been doing for the last eight years. Now, we are making a Death Stranding movie together. There are a lot of 'game adaptation films' out there but what we are creating is not just a direct translation of the game. The intention is that our audience will not only be fans of the games, but our film will be for anyone who loves cinema. We are creating a Death Stranding universe that has never been seen before, achievable only through the medium of film, it will be born.”

Kojima Productions has also announced that 16 million have played Death Stranding, up from the 10 million it reported in November 2022
