SEGA’s ‘Shinobi’ to come to the big screen

04.29.16 1 year ago

Just a day after Alicia Vikander was revealed as the next Lara Croft, another big screen version of a video game looks to be going forward.

Oscar-nominated producer Marc Platt and Stories International today announced their plans for a movie based on the SEGA video game Shinobi.

“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen,” Platt said in a statement. “We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games.”

Shinobi is actually a 30-year-old title. Since launching, the game makers have produced 12 Shinobi titles for a variety of gaming platforms including Wii, PlayStation and Xbox.
