A movie based on the 2015 action role-playing game Bloodborne is reportedly in the works from PlayStation Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The news comes by way of scooper DanielRPK. Darren Lemke, known for his work on Goosebumps, Shazam!, and Gemini Man, is set to write the script.
DanielRPK Is Working With Sony To Make A Bloodborne Movie
The film is said to be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, known for his work in the G.I. Joe and Transformers series. According to the rumored logline, Bloodborne follows the Hunter through the decrepit Gothic, Victorian-era-inspired city of Yharnam, whose residents become infected with a blood-borne disease that turns them into horrific beasts.
While trying to find the source of the plague, the Hunter unravels the city’s hidden mysteries, fighting beasts and cosmic beings. Although Bloodborne rumors often turn out to be false, the credibility of DanielRPK and Sony’s recent television adaptation of Twisted Metal suggests that there could be some truth to the new speculation.
Sony Recently Adapted Twisted Metal For TV
The Twisted Metal television series has been an enormous success. Billed as a comedy, the show features extreme violence and plenty of gore. But the soundtrack keeps things from ever feeling too intense. The show has a very colorful cast of characters, and they’re all brought to life with a really talented all-star lineup of stars.
The pacing of Twisted Metal is perfect, with a 30-minute run time across ten episodes that allows the story to feel focused and build a sense of momentum that never really feels like it slows down. While the rumored Bloodborne adaptation is said to be a full-length movie, it could experience the same level of success if done correctly.
Bloodborne Released For PlayStation In 2015
Bloodborne was developed by FromSoftware and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Released for the PlayStation 4 in 2015, the game is known for its atmospheric design and intricate lore. The game is set in the city of Yharnam, a gothic and Lovecraftian-inspired world plagued by a mysterious illness that turns its inhabitants into grotesque creatures.
Players take on the role of the Hunter, a protagonist tasked with unraveling the city’s dark secrets and surviving its nightmarish horrors. As the Hunter explores the city and defeats powerful foes, they gradually uncover the cryptic lore surrounding Yharnam and its dark past. Unlike FromSoftware’s Dark Souls, Bloodborne encourages aggressive gameplay, with rewards for quick, strategic attacks.
Bloodborne’s Hunter wields various weapons, including some that can change their form mid-combat. Firearms are also integrated into combat, providing options for ranged attacks and parrying. One notable feature is the regain system, where players can recover lost health by counterattacking enemies shortly after taking damage.
The level design in Bloodborne is interconnected, creating a cohesive and immersive world. The game also introduces Chalice Dungeons, which are procedurally generated levels that offer additional challenges and rewards. Multiplayer elements allow for cooperative gameplay, where players can join forces to tackle formidable enemies or bosses.
The Game’s Success Will Likely Spill Over To The Movie
Bloodborne received widespread critical acclaim for its level of difficulty, intricate world-building, and unique combat system. The game’s visuals, sound design, and atmosphere were also highly praised. The game’s success contributed to its reputation as one of the standout titles on the PlayStation 4 platform.
