‘Ghost of Tsushima’ Film Adaptation Finds Its Screenwriter In Takashi Doscher

Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima is one cinematic blockbuster of an action game, thus, it is no surprise that there is a film adaptation of the game in the works. Since March 2021, it has been known that Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick franchise, is set to direct this movie adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima.

Now, based on a Deadline report, we learn that the screenwriter for this adaptation will be Takashi Doscher. Doscher’s filmography includes films such as the sci-fi romance, Only, in which he was both writer and director, and Still, his debut feature which he has also written and directed.

Ghost of Tsushima is the second film produced through the partnership between Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions, with the first one being Uncharted. Compared to Uncharted, which is set in modern times, Ghost of Tsushima is historical fiction, set in the 13th century and based around the Mongol invasions of Japan. In the game, players play as Jin Sakai, a samurai warrior who’s also the last surviving member of his clan fighting for the freedom of Tsushima.

This is going to be one action-packed film. For now, there is no release date announced, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled for it.
