Sony is working on a film based on the video game Days Gone

Sam Heughan was cast to play the protagonist on the hunt for zombies

Sony PlayStation Productions would be making a cinematic movie based on the 2019 PS4 game Days Goneas reported by
. Sheldon Turner, who wrote among others X-Men: First Class, is taking care of the script, while Sam Heughan will be the actor who will give the face to the protagonist Deacon. Jennifer Klein and Turner will produce the film under their own label, Vendetta Productions, while Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan will handle production on the Sony PlayStation Productions side. In the meantime, there is no news on a possible sequel to the Bend Studio video game, which had some success at its release despite not always positive reviews, and arrived in 2021 also on PC. Days Gone is an action-adventure set in a post-apocalyptic Oregon full of hordes of zombies, a genre that never goes out of style in contemporary Hollywood. Fans have been asking for a sequel for some time, but Sony did not seem interested in resurrecting the franchise at least until now: when it arrives in theaters, it will probably be accompanied by a return in a video game version, perhaps a remaster on PlayStation 5 as has been rumored for some time. .
