Acclaimed neo-noir motel-in-hell shooter El Paso, Elsewhere getting a movie

El Paso, Elsewhere Movie in the Works

El Paso, Elsewhere, the ultra-stylish “neo noir” motel-in-hell shooter developed by Strange Scaffold, is set to hit the big screen with a movie adaptation following its successful release last year.

The game takes players on a journey through a reality-shifting Texan motel and into the depths of hell as they pursue their vampiric ex-girlfriend to prevent her from bringing about the end of the world. With a supernatural army of werewolves, fallen angels, and other damned creatures standing in their way, players can expect intense shootouts in what Strange Scaffold describes as a “vivid slow motion love letter to action classics.”

According to Deadline, LaKeith Stanfield, known for his roles in Get Out, Uncut Gems, and The Book of Clarence, is in discussions to produce and star in the upcoming El Paso, Elsewhere movie, potentially taking on the lead role of James Savage. The movie’s synopsis teases a story where James must confront his inner demons and his enigmatic ex-girlfriend, Janet, before she carries out a ritual that could bring about the end of the world.

As James navigates a reality-bending universe filled with ethereal monsters, he is forced to come to terms with his own addictions and self-worth, ultimately realizing that healing is the key to finding love.
