Sony’s abandoned Gravity Rush series is getting a movie adaption. The game was first released back on PS Vita in February 2012 before being ported to PS3 and getting a sequel on PS4 in 2017. However, the series has been dormant since. Deadline reports that Anna Mastro, the director behind Disney Plus’ Secret Society of Second Born Royals is heading up the movie adaption.
The film is in early pre-production. It is being handled by Scott Free productions in collaboration with PlayStation Productions. Very little is known about the movie at this point. We only know that screenwriter Emily Jerome is joining the production. She is currently working on the upcoming thriller Panopticon.
We also don’t know whether or not this Gravity Rush movie will follow an anime route. The series was previously adapted into a two-part anime. Each episode was less than 10 minutes but it produced a nice and unique way to experience the story. Whether Sony decides to go down the same route or plans on turning the Gravity Rush movie adaption into a CG or live-action film is unclear at this point.
