‘After Keanu Reeves, a Cyberpunk 2077 Movie is Possible’, Says Creator
The appearance of Keanu Reeves on stage during the last E3 2019 to promote Cyberpunk 2077 and announce his collaboration in the video game of CD Projekt RED has been recognized as a huge plus for the game. While the actor explained the symbiotic and particular relationship that Hollywood and the digital entertainment industry have, now the creator of Cyberpunk, Mike Pondsmith, confirms that after the attention generated with the participation of the actor, the adaptation to the cinema of the cyberpunk universe emerged from his imagination is more than likely.
“I can’t really say anything on [movie rights],” the creator explained to VGC. “But with Keanu Reeves being tied up in things, it’s become much more of a possibility,” he said. In the past, we have seen the way in which Hollywood adapted another great role-playing game of paper and pencil, Dragons and Dungeons, and the results were not too good.
On the other hand, The Witcher, saga that has popularized the Polish studio that is now with Cyberpunk 2077, will soon make the leap to Netflix. “I don’t think [videogames] need legitimizing,” Reeves explained a few weeks ago. “If anything I’d say it’s gone the other way. It’s more of the influence gaming’s had on, let’s call it Hollywood,” stressed the actor, who will play Johnny Silverhand, who is a Rockerboy, a class of characters very specific in the world of Cyberpunk 2077 and that received the affection of all.
We remind you that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on April 16 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
