Sifu, a popular kung fu third-person action game, is set to have its very own live-action movie adaptation
According to an exclusive report from Deadline, the live-action adaptation is still in its early development stage. The game's developer, Sloclap, will be collaborating with film studio Story Kitchen to produce the movie.
Derek Kolstad, who wrote the first three John Wick films, will be writing the screenplay for the film adaptation. He also wrote the 2021 action thriller, Nobody, and even wrote for two episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series, which are Power Broker and The Whole World Is Watching.
