Bingo, bango, bongo, Nintendo has officially announced the long speculated on Legend of Zelda film. It will be live action, and Sony will be their distributor and co-financier of the film (surprise, surprise).
Avi Arad of Marvel/Spider-Man fame will produce, Mr. Miyamoto will be at the helm, like the Mario movie. The writer is the guy who wrote Jurassic World and Great Detective Pikachu, the director is the guy who did the Maze Runner movies and is doing the new Planet of the Apes film, which is said to look really good.
Has to be a kick in the balls for Universal to miss out on this one I would think as a lot of the speculation had them getting the rights. Looks like Nintendo is shooting their shot as far as a big live action blockbuster film.
Also yes, let your Sony/Nintendo Playstation jokes commence.Last edited by Soundwave - on 07 November 2023
