Endemol Shine Studios, the scripted division of Endemol Shine North America, has acquired the action-adventure video game property Mirror’s Edge to adapt for television as a female-centered action series.
Developed by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts, Mirror’s Edge is set in a quasi-futuristic dystopian society in which a network of “runners” act as couriers to transmit messages while evading government surveillance. The game’s main character and heroine is Faith, a runner and skilled warrior whose sister is framed for murder. The narrative follows Faith as she is drawn into the fight against the ruling Conglomerate and becomes enveloped in a conspiracy that could bring down society itself.
“We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience,” said Sharon Hall, President of Endemol Shine Studios. “It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA DICE have done an amazing job establishing.”
2016 has already seen big screen adaptations of Ratchet & Clank, Angry Birds, and the soon-to-be Warcraft film. Later this year, we’ll be seeing the Assassin’s Creed movie.
All in all the expectations at guylogic for all these movies is kinda low with earlier game related films flopping all over the place. tell us what you think about this movie adaptation and of course game related movies in general in the comments below.
