This all started when a fan of Bend Studio joined the conversation to tweet Director Stephen Ford in the replies asking how fans can help him and Ascender make a live-action Days Gone short with Sam Witwer. Ford responded to this fan with great interest, while Witwer announced that he’s willing to grow his beard out for the project. Witwer was quick to point out that the Days Gone leads all look like their characters and that cutscenes of them in character have already been shot for the game, so a live-action short would apparently be “pretty one to one.”
Lead Designer at Bend Studio Eric Jensen joined the Days Gone live-action movie talk when he said he may not legally be able to join the project, but he wants to work on the project in some way. Jensen also offered to co-direct despite the potential legal conflict, with Ford expected to be the main director of the project. Sam Witwer is working on a new video game project, but he expressed enthusiasm with the prospect of having Jensen on as co-director.
Yes and yes and sure.
Seriously, though… The leads all look like their characters. …and we shot those cutscenes… So it would be pretty one to one.
