Barbarian Movie to Receive Video Game Adaptation
Diversion3 Entertainment, known for their work on Friday the 13th: The Game and Evil Dead: The Game, is teaming up with New Regency Pictures to create a video game adaptation of the highly acclaimed 2022 horror film, Barbarian. The game is currently in development for both console and PC platforms, as reported by Bloody-Disgusting.
“Expanding on the settings, characters, and creatures of Barbarian,” said Tim Hesse of Diversion3, the game’s details are still under wraps and the announcement has left fans of the movie speculating about how the thrilling storyline will translate into a game.
Exploring the World of Barbarian
Barbarian is a movie that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats with its mysterious and unpredictable plot. While it’s best to experience the film with limited knowledge, we can expect the game to delve further into the themes presented. Diversion3’s team is eager to take players on a new journey through the world of Barbarian.
The movie features an impressive cast including Georgina Campbell, Justin Long, Bill Skarsgard, Matthew Patrick Harris, and Richard Brake. Despite the excitement surrounding the game adaptation, no release date has been announced at this time.
Director’s Success and Future Projects
Zach Cregger, the writer and director of Barbarian, gained recognition for his work as a founding member of the comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U’ Know. The film received critical acclaim, leading Cregger to secure a lucrative deal for his next project, Weapons, starring Pedro Pascal from The Last of Us and Game of Thrones.
Often collaborating with Trevor Moore, another member of The Whitest Kids U’ Know, Cregger co-wrote and co-directed the low-budget film Miss March in 2009. Tragically, Moore passed away in 2021.
Other Horror Movies Turned Games
Joining the trend of horror movies being adapted into video games, A Quiet Place was also slated to receive a game adaptation in 2022. However, the release never materialized, leaving the fate of the project uncertain.
