Report: New Thief Game and Movie Being Produced

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Straight Up Films have announced (via Game Informer) a new movie based on the Thief franchise. Alongside the movie is the fifth game in the franchise, both presumably following the same plot.

The movie is penned by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes, produced by Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen, and Roy Lee, with Sandra Condito as executive producer. The report states the movie will be set in the same steampunk work as the game, and will tell a new tale in the “storied world” of the series’ protagonist.

The movie’s official page points towards a game being made as well. When asked for a comment, Square Enix said they have nothing to announce currently. Perhaps an E3 2017 reveal is planned?

We’ll keep you guys posted.
