According to our trusted inside source – the same one that has provided us with multiple confirmed exclusive scoops that have included the reveal that Bruce Wayne’s parents will be evil in Robert Pattinson’s The Batman – Demon’s Souls is being developed into a major movie project over at Sony.
It sounds like Sony knows that this has the potential to be a big intellectual property for them and that the movie will be a sizable production. Considering the popularity of the video game series, they seem to know that they have something that could become a real franchise for them if they play their cards right.
What is interesting about the news we’ve gotten is that we are hearing it is Demon’s Souls that is being developed into a movie.
The spiritual successor to the first game, Dark Souls, has gotten two sequels and is certainly more popular than the original game.
The two titles are not connected as far as their fictional universes are concerned, so we wonder if this film project is going to be directly pulling from the lore of Demon’s Souls as opposed to anything from Dark Souls. Or, is the Demon’s Souls name going to be used but the film will adapt material from both games?
It is unclear at this time what the exact plan is when it comes to the story and how Sony is going to handle any crossover between the two games and their mythologies.
Suffice to say, we are specifically hearing that Demon’s Souls is the game that is getting developed into a movie.
Demon's Souls, the first entry in the popular Souls video game series, is being developed as a major motion picture over at Sony.
