PlayStation Productions will be partnering with Scott Free Productions to develop a movie adaptation of the 2012 PS Vita game Gravity Rush.
According to Deadline, who previously reported the news of a Days Gone movie adaptation only yesterday, Anna Mastro (Secret Society of Second Born Royals) has been attached to direct, and Emily Jerome (Panopticon) will be writing the script.
The Gravity Rush movie follows in a long line of recently announced video game adaptations from PlayStation Productions with others including movies based on Ghost of Tsushima, Jak, and Daxter, and the aforementioned Days Gone as well as television series based on The Last of Us and Twisted Metal.
Gravity Rush is an action-adventure game released for the PS Vita and later ported to the PS4. It was made by PlayStation Japan Studio and directed by Keiichiro Toyama who previously directed the first Silent Hill game while working at Konami.
The game stars Kat, a young girl with no memories who wakes up in the floating city of Hekseville. She is accompanied by a mysterious cat named Dusty who has the ability to manipulate gravity. Using this power, Kat aims to fight against a group of monsters attacking the city called The Nevi who spawn out of a strange phenomenon called Gravity Storms.
Gravity Rush is considered a cult classic, praised for its distinct fantasy art style, interesting game physics, and lovable main character in Kat.
A sequel to the game called Gravity Rush 2 was later released for the PS4.
