We can already feel the tectonic plates of the film industry slowly shifting beneath us. WARCRAFT and ASSASSIN’S CREED haven’t hit theaters yet, but already studios are prepping to bank on their success. Just the other day, we heard news that the BORDERLANDS flick locked down its writer, and now Sega is swinging into action with an adaptation of one of their oldest characters, Shinobi.

According to Deadline, Marc Platt, who has produced such films as DRIVEBRIDGE OF SPIES, and SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD, has partnered with Sega to bring the nearly thirty-year-old character to the big screen. There are no real details on the film just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the story develops.

This isn’t the first time Sega’s nabbed film headlines. Back in 2014, they made it known that film was one of the areas in which they hoped to increase their presence, and back in February of this year, it was confirmed that a live-action/CG SONIC THE HEDGEHOG film adaptation was in the works. Needless to say, SHINOBI will target a very different demographic than the blue blur.

What do you think of the idea of a SHINOBI film, and what do you hope to see from it?
