Chad Stahelski is the director of the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie, and he’s been speaking on his intentions for the big screen adaptation of the 2020 adventure.

The director was speaking to IGN on the red carpet for The Matrix: Resurrections, saying “We just want to do it right.” He elaborated “You know how video game adaptions can go. So we’re taking our time and doing it right. We’re working very closely with the game developers to make sure we stick to what’s great about it.”

It was announced that a movie version of Jin Sakai’s tale was in the works back in March. Stahelski was the first name attached, and has previously directed all four John Wick movies. His association with Keanu Reeves doesn’t stop there, as he was also the actor’s stunt double on The Matrix.

Stahelski was also asked about the film’s progress, revealing that the production crew is still working on the script. However, he teases that fans of the game “would be very happy with what we’re working on”. As for a cast, however, there’s still no information just yet. IGN also asked if Jin’s in-game English voice actor Daisuke Tsuje might be in consideration, to which Stahelski responded “We’ll see. We haven’t gotten that far yet.”

The story was one of many strong points of Ghost of Tsushima, which is out now as a PlayStation exclusive. You can read our original review here, or Josh’s thoughts on the recent PlayStation 5 Director’s Cut version here.
