Kojima Productions To Start Making Movies

Well, this isn’t entirely surprising news. If you’ve been following Hideo Kojima’s career in the video game industry, chances are you’ve noticed that his games tend to be very cinematic in nature. They are blockbusters in the best sense, and some believe they even transcend the very medium they exist in, with his latest endeavor Death Stranding already launching under mammoth expectations.

Though while Death Stranding may have been in the works for several years, it’s still Kojima Productions’ first project following the game dev auteur’s departure from Konami. As it turns out, Kojima has cinematic ambitions for the company, as he revealed to BBC Newsbeat in a new in-depth documentary.

“In the future Kojima Productions will start making films. If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well.”

While I’m not sure I fully agree with Kojima on this, I do think the film medium is well suited for me. He’s always been a huge film guy, so seeing this transition isn’t surprising. When he does eventually dive into the world of movies, I expect him to be on the level of someone like Zack Snyder or the Wachowskis — someone with a bold vision who doesn’t necessarily conform to what is generally accepted as standard.

What do you think of this? And what kind of movies do you think Kojima will create? Let us know down below!
