The Ghost of Tsushima movie will be quite faithful to the culture of the game and will have Japanese elements. Read what the director said here!
One of the movies based on video games PlayStation which is currently under development and very little is known is Ghost of Tsushima. However, the director of the film, Chad Stahelski (John Wick Saga), recently confirmed that it will have several Japanese elements. This decision would seem to be quite wise considering what the game is about and where it takes place.
In a recent interview with the media Collider, Stahelsky confirmed that the adaptation will have “an all-Japanese cast and it will be in Japanese”. But this is not all, since the fear of many with this drastic decision is that the studio behind the film says that it does not agree. Y Stahelsky He spoke a bit on the subject of acceptance and commented: “It’s going to scare a lot of people, but Sony He agrees with our decision and will help us carry it out.”
Another reason why the director assures that the film will not be so shocking if it is spoken in a language other than English is quite interesting. “The general public of Western they are getting more and more used to reading subtitles”he explained. This makes a lot of sense and if we consider that Ghost of Tsushima it is a kind of Western, it should not surprise the public that it is in Japanese.
“Honestly, it’s probably the same things that would scare most people. It’s a fantasy period piece.”the director began to expand the idea a little. “It is made with references to Aikira Kurosawa, who is probably among the top five biggest influences in my life when it comes to film. It’s an opportunity to push technology and people forward in a timeless story. It is the typical mythological story of good versus evil. Find a man, see him change the world or the world changing him. are all things of Joseph Campbell that you would love in a story. You put that in and, I was told that I have some kind of samurai fetish, which will be seen in the movie and it’s probably true because I love manga, anime and stuff.”.
But this is not all the director had to say, as he went on to talk about the aesthetics of the film itself. “I think if we do this right, it will be visually amazing. It is a character centered story. It is an opportunity to offer good action and great views. And honestly, we would try to do it in all character. I mean, it’s a Japanese thing about the Mongols invading the island of Tsushima“finished the director.
