Netflix's film adaptation of Ubisoft's 'Beyond Good & Evil’ is taking longer than expected.
Netflix and Ubisoft are teaming up to bring us movie adaptations of some of our favorite games from the developer!
The streaming giant and the gaming monster have a couple of adaptations of high-profile games in the works, one of which is 'Beyond Good & Evil’-- an action-adventure video game with a cult following.
'Beyond Good & Evil’ was first announced last year. However, 2021 is almost over now and we still haven't seen a glimpse of the exciting project.
Let us look at some of the latest updates for Netflix's 'Beyond Good & Evil.'
Here is everything we know so far.
It's been a while since the 'Beyond Good & Evil’ movie was announced. Sadly, there is still no release date as of this writing. The Netflix movie adaptation was first announced back in July 2020.
During the announcement, THR revealed that “a search for writers to adapt the game is underway.”
However, the 'Beyond Good & Evil’ movie still hasn't entered production as of October 6, 2021.
With its lack of progress, it's now impossible for the film to arrive this year.
We will continue to watch out for Netflix's update on the film.
‘Beyond Good & Evil’ is a mixture of live-action/animated films. Aside from its concept, not much is known about the plot of the movie yet.
The film will be directed by Rob Letterman, whose previous credits include Detective Pikachu, Goosebumps, and Gulliver’s Travels.
Letterman's previous works that incorporate CG to bring animated characters to life in live-action films are spectacular!
With his expertise, we are confident that Letterman can easily pull off the upcoming Netflix adaptation.
‘Beyond Good & Evil’ is based on a video game franchise and follows the adventures of Jade, an investigative reporter and martial artist. She is an ally of the resistance movement, and they work together to expose a planet-wide alien conspiracy.
There are no official casting details yet as of this writing. The project has laid dormant for months now.
Jason Altman is attached to produce the project. Altman serves as SVP and head of film and television at Ubisoft. He will be joined by Margaret Boykin, who serves as head of film development at Ubisoft.
Netflix's film adaptation for ‘Beyond Good & Evil’ has not entered production yet. Once it finishes filming, we expect the movie to remain under post-production for another extended period due to its heavy CG works. Hence, it will be a while before we can see its official trailer.
Do not worry because we will continue updating this article once more information is available. Feel free to check back on this link now and then.
