‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation Lands at Sony (EXCLUSIVE)

‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation Lands at Sony (EXCLUSIVE)

It has generated more than $ 10.8 billion in revenue for life, and is expected to be one of the highest grossing video games ever created, defending the title of the most played game in the world by number of players of all time. Chuck Hogan, an American screenwriter, agreed to pen the movie in 2017. Hogan additionally wrote the screenplay for the Michael Bay movie 13 Hours, and wrote the novel upon which Ben Affleck's Oscar-nominated movie The City was primarily based.

It was developed by South Korean game developer Smilegate Entertainment, who first launched the video game in 2007 in South Korea and was later release in China and in North America on 2008 and 2009, respectively. It's a team-based multiplayer shooter about a world battle between two mercenary factions, so the potential for a global blockbuster motion movie is positively there. And Moritz positively is aware of the best way to make an motion flick that sells around the globe.

Moritz has been working on this for years; Smilegate spent an entire year mulling over offers from Hollywood before eventually deciding to partner with Moritz's Original Films banner back in 2015, and the project hasn't had any traction since. Moritz has also produced Vin Diesel's Bloodshot and Sonic the Hedgehog, which releases this weekend.

Smilegate claims that Crossfire has 1 billion registered users and up to 6 million concurrent players. And, its esports league enjoys a viewership of approximately 20 million people per event.
