We come bearing good news for all the God of War fans out there. According to Deadline, the iconic franchise might be headed to Amazon Prime. The same source also reports it might be helmed by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby of The Expanse

This is the duo that shares an Oscar nomination for co-writing Children of Men and the first Iron Man movie. They will be joined by Rafe Judkins of The Wheel of Time fame. Judkins also has Marvel ties; he was a writer-producer on ABC’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

God Of War

If true, the live-action TV show will be created in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions. However, both the reps for Sony and Amazon Studios are yet to share their official confirmation. 

While live-action adaption of video games have had a bad track record at the box office so far, take the new Uncharted movie, for instance. An episodic take, based over multiple seasons might be the way to go. 

For example, the popular video game, Last of Us starring Pedro Pascal is already in production at HBO. Similarly, the Halo TV series is set to premiere on Voot Select on March 24th, while Netflix has a Resident Evil TV series in the works. 

But it’s Amazon Studios that has been aggressively pursuing video game adaptations, including a Fallout TV series, starring Walton Goggins and a Mass Effect series adaptation, with dj2 Entertainment. 

God Of War

When it comes to lore, Amazon certainly has a lot of material to work with. The God of War franchise spans over seven games, with the recent one winning the game of the year in 2018. This year will also see the eighth installment of the popular franchise, God of War: Ragnorok hitting the shelves.
