The director of the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie, which is based on the PlayStation video game [...]
Speaking to IGN in a recent interview, Stahelski said that he and the team working on Ghost of Tsushima are trying their best to make sure that it closely resembles the source material. Stahelski even acknowledged that many video game movies in the past haven't turned out well, and he definitely doesn't want that to be the case with Ghost of Tsushima. "We just want to do it right. You know how video game adaptions can go. So we're taking our time and doing it right," he explained. "We're working very closely with the game developers to make sure we stick to what's great about it."
Stahelski went on to explain that at this point in time, Ghost of Tsushima is still in the process of having its script written. Furthermore, he didn't commit to any specific actors being involved with the movie. When asked if Daisuke Tsuji, who portrayed the main protagonist, Jin Sakai, in the video game could potentially come back in the movie, Stahelski said that they still haven't gotten far enough into this process to begin making casting decisions.
