The RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance will receive a live-action adaptation. However, it has not been decided yet whether it will be a movie or a TV series. Wild Sheep Content, founded earlier this year by Erik Barmack, is responsible for the project. Previously, he worked at Netflix, where he was responsible for non-English speaking productions. Thanks to his actions such positions became a key element of the streaming giant's offer.
The project is to involve the Czech studio Warhorse, the creators of the game. Currently, talks are being held with potential screenwriters and directors. The early stage of work on the adaptation means that it will not appear on the screens very soon.
It is worth adding that this is not the first project of this kind in which Erik Barmack is involved. A few weeks ago, Wild Sheep Content announced the cooperation with Sega, which will result in the development of a live-action adaptation of the Yakuza series.
Barmack explains that the world is full of interesting brands that do not come from the United States and it is high time to start using them. According to him, such positions as Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Yakuza or The Witcher, offer a style unique to the countries in which they were born, but at the same time are attractive to the global audience.
As a reminder, Kingdom Come: Deliverance was released on February 13, 2018 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game was warmly welcomed by the industry websites. The PC edition currently has an average rating of 76% on Metacritic. The game turned out to be a big commericial hit, selling 3 million copies.
