The Ghost of Tsushima movie is well on its way. The film has found its screenwriter in Takashi Doscher.
The Ghost of Tsushima game was an instant success. Within the first three days of release, the game sold a whopping 2.4 million copies. So it’s no surprise that Sony soon announced a film adaptation. In addition to a director, the project now also has a screenwriter, namely Takashi Doscher.
Doscher is best known for his fantasy mystery film Still and his apocalyptic film Only. He has written and directed both films. With Still, Doscher won several prizes. Also, his script Blue, a monster movie, is currently being developed by MGM.
It was previously announced that Chad Stahelski, the director of the John Wick films, will direct the film. In an interview with IGN, he indicated that they are working closely with the game developers to stay as close to the game as possible. The director does not want to disappoint fans of the game.
Since Stahelski wants to stay as close to the game as possible, we can assume that the film follows the story of the game. The game follows Jin Sakai, a samurai whose whole world is turned upside down when invading Mongol troops defeat the samurai. To survive and save his homeland, he must give up his ancient samurai traditions and adapt to a new way of waging war.
