Sony has a grand plan to bring its own IPs to streaming platforms and cinemas. One of the important productions of the Japanese corporation is Horizon Zero Dawn and today we got to know the first information about the series.
The Deadline editorial team confirms that Steve Blackman has signed a long-term contract with the Netflix platform and it is he who will have the opportunity to prepare the series based on Horizon Zero Dawn. The hit from PlayStation 4 will be transferred to a small screen and it is one of two productions for which Irish Cowboy – a new production company of Blackman – will be responsible.
Steve Blackman is the showrunner of “The Umbrella Academy”, and previously writer and producer worked on, among others, “Altered Carbon”, “Fargo”, “Private Practice” and “Bones”. It is he who will take care of the development of the Horizon series, which is an important project of the Netflix platform – according to the editorial staff of Deadline, the corporation has been looking for a suitable person to take care of the project for a long time.
Horizon Zero Dawn and Orbital [drugi zamówiony serial – red.] are sublime designs rooted in characters that fans will love and identify with, which is a hallmark of Irish Cowboy production. We’re excited to work with Netflix and all of our partners to advance these groundbreaking stories, Blackman said.
The developer has already confirmed that Aloy will be the main character of the story, which is actually interesting considering the recent leaks – the show doesn’t necessarily have to be a prequel:
“Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-crafted game with great characters that are not often found in the gaming world. Guerrilla Games has created an incredibly lush and lively world of man and machine on a collision course to oblivion. Their salvation comes in the form of a young warrior named Aloy, who has no idea that she is the key to saving the world. Suffice it to say yes, Aloy will be the main character in our story. Together with my screenwriting partner Michelle Lovretta, we are excited to develop this amazing IP into a series for all types of viewers. ”
Horizon Zero Dawn will be a series with actors, but at least we don’t know much about the events at the moment.
