A new report from the awesomely named website Giant Freakin Robot, claims that a Demon’s Souls movie is in the works at Sony Pictures.
Giant Freakin Robot’s unnamed source claims that the popular PS3 & PS5 game is being turned into a movie and could be a huge franchise for Sony. The source claims that Demon’s Souls is being made into a film, so may not incorporate any of the lore from the Dark Souls games.
Demon’s Souls was the first of the ‘Souls’ games with Dark Souls following, but Demon’s Souls universe isn’t connected to the fictional universe of the Dark Souls games. Giant Freakin Robot wonders if the film would pull directly from the Demon’s Souls lore or if Demon’s Souls would be used only as a title and the movie script would use story elements from both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls.
Giant Freakin Robot’s source seems to think that it is specifically Demon’s Souls that is being made into a movie, however.
In Demon’s Souls, the main character is unnamed and of course, through the character creator, you can make the character look pretty much like anything you want. It will be interesting to see how that works in movie form. It will also be interesting to see if the movie if it does actually get made, is set in the same fantasy world of Boletaria.
There’s certainly plenty of source material to work with to bring Demon’s Souls to the big screen. And a film version would be a pretty awesome high fantasy experience.
