The Ghost of Tsushima film has fallen somewhat silent since Johh Wick director Chad Stahelski was chosen to helm the project. However, a new report has stated that the movie based on the video game has found its writer: Takashi Doscher.
Deadline’s latest report revealing Doscher’s involvement also states that the project is still in early development and has no release window. Doscher has written and directed a few films and his most recent release was Only, a sci-fi romance film starring Leslie Odom Jr. that was widely panned. He also wrote and directed Still, a drama that came out in 2018. Doscher was the youngest director to sell a film to ESPN with his documentary called A Fighting Chance at the age of 22.

Stahelski, Alex Young, and Jason Spitz will be producing the film through 87Eleven Entertainment. PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan will be producers. Sucker Punch, the developer behind the game, will be executive producing.
Ghost of Tsushima is yet another way in which Sony is adapting its video game IP to other mediums. Other examples include the upcoming The Last of Us HBO series, Peacock’s Twisted Metal show, and the recently released Uncharted film.
