PlayStation Productions has found its writer for the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie project currently in the works.

Deadline, who broke word of the film’s initial announcement in March of last year, is who’s broken the news again. They name Takashi Doscher as the man who’ll be putting pen to paper on the movie adaptation of Jin Sakai’s samurai story. Doscher’s previous works include sci-fi romance Only starring Freida Pinto and the currently-in development-with-MGM Blue. He was also behind the writing and directing for MMA documentary A Fighting Chance for ESPN.

Doscher confirmed the news on his own Twitter account with a brief comment. “I grew up watching “chambara” re-runs with my grandparents. I skipped school to line up for the PS2 on launch day. To say this is the highlight of my career is an understatement. Honoured and humbled. Arigato-gozaimasu!”

We’ve previously learned that the movie will be directed by none other than Chad Stahelski. He was responsible for directing all four John Wick movies starring Keanu Reeves, and also most recently worked alongside ol’ Johnny Silverhands in an acting role on The Matrix: Resurrections.

There’s no timeframe for the Ghost of Tsushima movie yet, although this news probably means it’s a little bit away just yet. Still, that gives us plenty of time to enjoy the game: you can check out our original review here, and our Director’s Cut thoughts over here.
