The Death Stranding movie will see Hideo Kojima heavily involved in the project, but the Metal Gear creator confirmed he won’t be directing the film.
Kojima-san, who is the mastermind behind the original Death Stranding and is currently developing the sequel on PS5, took to Twitter to clarify his role in the film adaptation:
Just to be clear. I am deeply involved in producing, supervising, plotting, look, design and content of the film adaptation of Death Stranding, just not in charge of directing.
The Death Stranding movie was announced back in December 2020, and will be produced by Kojima and financed by Alex Lebovici’s Hammerstone Studios.
