For a man who’s produced a number of films about zombie apocalypses, hyper-violent historic battles that includes shirtless bearded males yelling, and antiheroic superheroes beating one another right into a pulp, you’d assume Zack Synder would have been concerned a way or one other with a videogame by now. It sounds as if that’s about to alter, if we will consider what the director of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Military of the Lifeless stated on a current podcast.
Showing on an episode of the Nerd Queens podcast that launched Sunday on YouTube, Snyder talked about a number of of his ongoing tasks, akin to his fundraising collaborations with American Basis for Suicide Prevention, his upcoming two-part house opera movie Insurgent Moon, in addition to hinting at a attainable theatrical re-release of his DC Universe movies tied to the current teaser video Snyder tweeted on March 15. The director gave the impression to be having numerous enjoyable — a lot in order that he let slip a point out of a beforehand unannounced undertaking he’s engaged on: an RPG set within the universe of Insurgent Moon.
“The one factor that I’m having a extremely good time with – and I don’t actually know if I’m supposed to speak about it – is that this RPG that we’re doing that’s simply actually insane, and so immersive and so intense and so big,” Snyder revealed whereas discussing his aforementioned sci-fi movie starring Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), and Ed Skrein (Recreation of Thrones). The director interrupted himself, earlier than stating that, “There’s extra coming, however all I’ll say is that it was pitched to me – as a result of I’ve all the time wished to do an RPG – like, ‘nicely, we may do it at this scale, or we may do it at ridiculous scale.” Snyder briefly elaborated additional, revealing that he pitched the concept for the sport himself to an as-of-yet unnamed developer and hinting that the undertaking remains to be comparatively early in growth.
It goes with out saying that there have been many, many video video games tailored from sci-fi and fantasy films. Likewise, there’s been simply as many would-be sci-fi online game diversifications that in any other case have by no means come to fruition (Christopher Nolan introduced his curiosity in making an Inception online game as early as 2010, a undertaking which the director remains to be apparently eager about). Right here’s hoping that Zack Snyder’s upcoming, as-of-yet-untitled, and formally as-of-yet-unannounced Insurgent Moon online game will see the sunshine of day.
Insurgent Moon is about to be launched on Dec. 22, 2023 and can stream on Netflix.
