TheHollywoodReporter has revealed that a Final Fantasy television series is now currently in development at Sony Pictures Television and Hivemind (The Expanse, The Witcher). The original series will be set in the world of Eorzea and will be live-action, where it will ultimately land is currently unknown.
Sony Pictures Television, Square Enix and production company Hivemind (which produces The Expanse for Amazon and is currently working on Netflix’s upcoming The Witcher series) will produce the live-action TV series which will center on an original story set in the world of Eorzea, first introduced in the online game Final Fantasy XIV.
Jason F. Brown (The Expanse), Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) and Dinesh Shamdasani (Sony Pictures upcoming Bloodshot) will produce for Hivemind. Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton will write for the series and also serve as executive producers.
While specific details about the new TV series plot remain under lock and key(blade), it will explore “the struggle between magic and technology in a quest to bring peace to a land in conflict.”
World building will be a huge factor and how much of a budget they’ll end up working with.
I’m not the biggest Final Fantasy fan but this is could be a really neat project.
