Sony plans more movies: Days Gone may hit the small screen

Sony is pleased with the performance of the game movies after Uncharted.

Movie industry pulse publication Deadline reports that a Days Gone adaptation is in the works at Sony’s PlayStation Productions studio, with a rather unlikely name around the lead role of Deacon St. John.

Outlander star Sam Heughan, actually, and frankly, I can see the casting decision from a filmmaker’s point of view, but I also don’t see the muscular Scottish lover as the Pacific Northwest biker anti-hero who rides through the zombie apocalypse.

What Days Gone is about

“An outlaw biker floating through the post-apocalyptic world of the American Northwest is a killer premise, and Days Gone sometimes fulfills it,” said pcgamer in its review, which got an average score of 63. Not exceptional, but not terrible. Either way, it was an impressive piece of work from Bend Studios, which had been sent to PS Vita spinoff Uncharted hell since its Siphon Filter days.

Despite this, Days Gone was a huge success for Sony’s effort to put PlayStation games on PC and sold around 9 million copies across all platforms. So what do we know? We know you liked the biker and loved it when he shot zombies, even if it wasn’t a great game in the end. What it did have was a good atmosphere, which good movies need – maybe it will shine brighter there.

The supposed adaptation will be written by Sheldon Turner, who wrote the comedy Up in the Air and worked on X-Men: First Class. The script is supposed to be “a love ballad for motorcycle movies”. Easy Rider would have been much spicier with the end of the world in the background.

On the other hand, maybe we’re really getting something out of left field. Maybe we’re talking more like The Motorcycle Diaries, but with cannibalistic mutants. We’ll keep you posted.
