Shinobi Movie in the Works With Scott Pilgrim Producer

As announced back in February, Sonic the Hedgehog is getting his own movie, but it appears that Sega’s production company, Stories International, is currently working with producer Marc Platt to bring ninja series Shinobi to the silver screen (via. GameSpot).

Platt will be working alongside Stories International president and CEO Tomoya Suzuki, as well as production partner Adam Siegel. Platt is known for his work on films such as Into the Woods, Legally Blonde, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Drive, as well as for live shows Wicked and Grease Live. 

“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen,” Platt said in a press statement (via. Polygon). “We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games and brings this fascinating world to life for moviegoing audiences.”

Stories International was formed collaboratively between Sega and Japanese advertising company, Hakuhodo DY. In 2014, Stories revealed their plans to create movies, television series and digital entertainment based around Sega’s games, including arcade beat ’em up Altered Beast and open racing game, Crazy Taxi.
