Days Gone Movie Reportedly In The Works

According to a recent report from Deadline, Days Gone movie is in the works, and is apparently being adapted by Oscar nominated writer Sheldon Turner.

What’s more is that Outlanders star Sam Heughan could also be involved, and though it’s not fully clear in what capacity that would be, early reports point to him starring in the film.

Days Gone is set in the Pacific Northwest after a devastating global pandemic. You play as Deacon St. John, a motorcycle club member who must survive in a dangerous world full of zombies and other hostile survivors.

Upon release, it received mixed reviews from critics, who criticized the story, mission design and technical issues but praised the graphics, artificial intelligence and Sam Witwer‘s performance as Deacon. It is often regarded as one of the weaker first-party games Sony delivered during the PlayStation 4 generation.

Despite not being as well-received, Days Gone was a commercial success; it sold more copies than all of Bend Studio’s previous games combined and became the 19th-best-selling game of 2019 in the US. In 2021, it was reported that the development team had unsuccessfully pitched a sequel to Sony.
