Amazon Studios will further dive into the world of video game adaptations, signing a first-look deal with one of the production companies behind the Sonic The Hedgehog film.
The streamer has struck a deal with Dmitri M. Johnson’s dj2 Entertainment, which co-produced the Sonic film and is involved in the sequel. Under the pact, dj2 Entertainment, which specializes in bringing video game titles to screen, will create and produce content that will exclusively stream on Prime Video, including TV adaptations of gaming IP.
The deal comes shortly after dj2 struck a deal with Josef Fares’ Hazelight Studios to bring Game Of The Year winner It Takes Two to TV and film. Beyond the charming 2021 two-player game, dj2 also seeks to adapt Life Is Strange, Disco Elysium and more for television and film.
