Qizilbash added that they have been analysing how Marvel took its comic book range and turned them into a massive movie franchise, and they hope to replicate this with their movies.
The new studio, which is situated in Culver City at Sony Studios, is headed by Asad Qizilbash, and is being overseen by Sony Interactive Entertainment head Shawn Layden. "It would be a lofty goal to say we're following in their footsteps, but certainly we're taking inspiration from that". According to Layden, "We feel that now is a good time to look at other media opportunities across streaming or film or television to give our worlds life in another spectrum".
Sony Interactive Entertainment is looking to break the video game curse.
PlayStation also has a massive library of more than 100 titles, many of them with massive global popularity. No matter the project, "It has to stand up as a great movie or TV show". Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) has also desperately been trying to get a Metal Gear Solid movie made. Sony is more familiar with the franchises and knows what its fans like, so why shouldn't it produce its own movies and shows?
In an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Qizilbash said the team has spoken to a number of Hollywood producers including Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Kevin Feige to get an understanding about the production process and what to expect. This will perhaps help them avoid disasters like "big budget efforts like 2016's Assassin's Creed or Warcraft [that] bombed at the box office and earned weak reviews" - failures that have been attributed to Hollywood misunderstanding the appeal of the video games. We'll be sure to keep you posted as details on the projects in development at the newly formed studio come to light.
