Remember Shinobi, the rad SEGA ninja game that was incredibly over the top and offered some seriously hardcore gameplay? Well if you ever wanted to see a movie based on the series, it looks like that may be happening. Producer Marc Platt, known for his work on movies such as Legally Blonde, Wanted and Scott Pilgrim vs the World, is partnering with SEGA, Hakuhodo DY Group and Stories International to produce a feature film based on the franchise. Platt had this to say about the project:
“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen,”
“We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games.”
This is definitely going to be an interesting project and hopefully it turns out to be a worthwhile one. Would you watch a movie based on Shinobi?
