The creator and writer of John Wick Derek Kolstad has been given the responsibility to adapt the hit video game Just Cause.
Along with Kolstad, Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer and Adrian Askarieh of Prime Universe Films have joined the upcoming project as producers. The executive producers of the upcoming film are Constantin’s Martin Moszkowicz and Square Enix.
The four game series (created by Avalanche Studios and Square Enix) follow the protagonist Rico Rodriguez as he fights against the nefarious mercenary group The Black Hand. The producers are attempting to start a franchise around the open-world games according to multiple sources.
It will be interesting to see if this film will successfully break the video game adaption curse. The series itself is fast-paced, action paced, and explosive – perfect a Hollywood treatment.
