Although the adaptations of video games to the big screen or to television have always been a controversial subject, the great success of The Last of Us on HBO Max or that of the Sonic adaptations to the cinema, have shown that there are also occasions in which can do very well. It is because of that Chad Stahelski wants to adapt the Ghost of Tsushima video game.
The director of John Wick likes the most difficult yet and wants to try his luck with the spectacular game by Sucker Punch Productions released in 2020. Precisely, one of the most impressive elements of Ghost of Tsushima are its colors and its spectacular landscapes, however Stahelski is considering the possibility of reducing everything to black and white.

“It’s definitely one of the things we’re talking about,” said the director in an interview with IGN in which he was asked directly about the possibility that Ghost of Tsushima was in black and white. Despite the fact that the game is very colorful, the touch in black and white would be a way of paying homage to the cinema of Akira Kurosawa, one of the main inspirations for Ghost of Tsushima.
However, although the director did not want to give more details, it may not refer to the final version of the film, but a copy that only reaches streaming services, such as Zack Snyder’s Justice League, or that are only black and white sequences to play with the possibilities offered by color.
