Sony is launching PlayStation Productions, an in-house studio dedicated to bringing its games to life on film and television.

“We’ve got 25 years of game development experience and that’s created 25 years of great games, franchises and stories,” SIE chairman Shawn Layden told The Hollywood Reporter about the company’s new initiative. “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.
Layden would go on to say that the studio is taking some inspiration from what Marvel has done in the cinema.

PlayStation Productions is an unexpected surprise. For years, the norm was to license out properties to film studios. Even Nintendo, who is very protective of its franchises, is working with Illumination on the Super Mario movie instead of developing the film itself. PlayStation Productions paints an exciting future for video game movie adaptations.

Though no projects have been announced, Playstation Productions is reportedly already working on several adaptations. Among the potential titles in Sony’s library are Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Metal Gear Solid, God of War and The Last of Us, among others.

There is no word on whether the new studio will be involved in any objects already underway, such as the recently announced Tomb Raider sequel currently being developed by MGM and Warner Bros.
