Last month, it was revealed that Netflix is developing a drama series based on the PlayStation video game, Horizon Zero Dawn. Well, it looks like that “early development” is much further along than previously known. The Ronin can confirm that Netflix is going to shoot their Horizon series in Toronto and other locations in/around Ontario with filming said to be aiming for a start this August and wrap around late March of next year.
They’ve already started prep on Horizon with production designer Mark Steel, who previously worked on other Netflix projects like Locke & Key and The Umbrella Academy, joining the show’s production team.
We’re still waiting on news concerning showrunners, writers, directors and actors. But if they’re aiming to begin production in a month we should be getting those announcements in the near future.
Netflix’s latest batch of video game adaptations includes the Lance Reddick-fronted Resident Evil series, The Cuphead Show, an in-the-works Bioshock movie, and an animated Castlevania show. Other PlayStation live-action projects in the works are The Last of Us at HBO, God of War at Amazon Prime Video, Twisted Metal at Peacock, Neill Blomkamp is helming a Gran Turismo movie, and a Chad Stahleski-directed feature film adaptation of the popular samurai game Ghosts of Tsushima is also in the works.
In a world where Machines dominate the earth and mankind lives on in primitive tribal societies, one woman sets out to find her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. As Aloy, you must brave the Machine-infested wilderness and unearth secrets that lie buried deep within the earth. Will you embrace your calling… or pass into oblivion unsung? The player uses ranged weapons, a spear, and stealth to combat mechanical creatures and other enemy forces. A skill tree provides the player with new abilities and bonuses.
