Ghost of Tsushima and the John Wick franchise have a lot in common
At first glance, asking Chad Stahelski to direct the film adaptation of Ghost of Tsushima seems like an incredible move on Sony Pictures’ part, but once you start to break down the similarities between the John Wick franchise and the PlayStation exclusive which has sold 6.5 million copies and counting, the idea is getting better and better.
Both properties feature some of the best action sequences in their respective mediums, which initially caught the attention of their respective audiences. John Wick, which features some of Keanu Reeves’ most epic fight scenes, chases (in car and on horseback), and all kinds of intense action that keeps people coming back time and time again. Ghost of Tsushima, which is honestly one of the most brutal games of the PlayStation 4 era, has just as many memorable fights, ambushes, and battles that are enjoyable even if you keep dying over and over again.
