Rumor: Sony is considering a live-action God of War TV show with Amazon

Sony is considering a live-action God of War TV show

A new rumor (via Deadline) is suggesting Sony is considering a live-action God of War TV show with Amazon’s Prime Video.

The new rumor says sources close to Prime Video confirm they’re in talks with Sony’s PlayStation Productions to make a live-action God of War series.

The Expanse creators and executive producers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby will be running production, as well as The Wheel of Time producer Rafe Judkins are all attached to the new adaptation.

Should this be finally approved by Sony, this will be the latest Hollywood-stint from Sony. News that Sony is considering a live-action God of War TV show with Amazon Prime Video come not long after the publisher recently announced they’re making another live-action series based on Twisted Metal.

The real question with this potential God of War live-action series is will the showrunners adapt the original storyline, where Kratos is a bloodthirsty and sex-hungry demi-god?

Or will they adapt the reboot / successor series (pictured, God of War: Ragnarok), where he is a father again and has calmed down quite a bit, but still kills lots of things? Either way it’ll never top the all-time classic Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, starring Kevin Sorbo.

Sony is also working on an HBO-produced live-action series based on The Last of Us, and Amazon’s Prime Video is also working on a live-action adaptation on Bethesda’s Fallout series, the latter of which confirmed its first star with Walton Goggins. Sony also just launched their first live-action adaptation film based on the Uncharted game series.

Amazon Prime Video’s current biggest production is definitely The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, an eight-episode spinoff series based on appendices of J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary work – and set within the second age of Middle-earth. Watch the debut trailer and read more about that series here in our previous report.
