New Content for Cyberpunk
Video game to television adaptations have been quite successful recently. Titles like The Last of Us have made the transition to live-action adaptations and shows like Arcane and, of course, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners have been filling the animation void. Yet, now, Cyberpunk is looking to take the next step in adaptations and make its own live-action project. That’s right, today CD Projekt Red announced a partnership with Anonymous Content to develop a live-action Cyberpunk 2077 project. Though the project is currently in early development, a press release provides more info on the project itself.
Cyberpunk 2077 has already told a story in show form. The highly lauded anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, was the first foray of the franchise into a different medium of storytelling. Now, a new project is being developed for the series. Importantly, the project will be set in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe. Yet, the story will be completely new.
Of course, CD Projekt Red is working alongside Anonymous Content to develop the project. Interestingly, Anonymous Content is no stranger to making successful projects. The global media company has been responsible for Emmy-winning series such as True Detective and Mr. Robot and even award-winning films like The Revenant.
Currently, the project is in its earliest stages of development. As such, the project is currently searching for writers. Furthermore, the project has recruited Anonymous Content’s Garrett Kemble, David Levine, Ryan Schwartz, and Bard Dorros to produce.
Importantly, more information about the project will become available as the project develops. So, are you excited for a live-action Cyberpunk? Have you had the opportunity to check out Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty?
