“Legend of Zelda: Nintendo & Sony making live-action film”
Nintendo and Sony Pictures are making a live-action film of the beloved video game series The Legend of Zelda. Renowned video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and Avi Arad of the Spider-Man trilogy will co-produce, with The Maze Runner’s Wes Ball directing. There is no word yet on who will make up the cast, or the plot of the film. In a post on Nintendo’s Japanese account on X, Mr Miyamoto revealed that he has been working on the film with Arad for some time. He said that the development of the film has started, with Nintendo heavily involved in the production. “It will take time until its completion, but I hope you look forward to seeing it,” he wrote to fans. It is Nintendo’s second most successful franchise after Super Mario, having sold about 150 million copies since its debut in 1986.
