Sony is Making a Movie Based on First Person Shooter ‘CrossFire’

CrossFire is one of the most popular PC games in China.

Variety reports that Sony Pictures is teaming up with South Korean game developer Smilegate on the film adaptation. Moritz and Authentic Movie are nonetheless on board to co-finance the variation with Chinese language movie distributor Tencent Photos, from a script by The Pressure author Chuck Hogan.

I'd never heard of this version of Crossfire before, but according to Wikipedia, it's "a free-to-play first-person shooter that features two mercenary corporations named the "Black List" and 'Global Risk, ' fighting each other in an epic global conflict".

Another hit game is getting the big-screen treatment.

Moritz will produce through his Original Film banner. Moritz is also credited in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which will be released on Valentine's Day. Smilegate claims "Crossfire" has 1 billion registered users and up to 6 million concurrent players.

Initially launched in South Korea in 2007, CrossFire has continued to develop over the previous decade and a half to a devoted participant base of 660 million registered customers throughout 80 worldwide locations and over $10 billion in lifetime income. And, its electronic sports league enjoys an audience of approximately 20 million people per event.
