PlayStation’s biggest franchises are set to hit the silver screen. In partnership with Sony Studios, Sony Interactive Entertainment has launched a new division called PlayStation Productions, which is charged with translating some of the company’s 100+ properties to film and television.

The production studio is headed by Asad Qizilbash and overseen by chairman of Worldwide Studios at SIE, Shawn Layden. Both have looked to the success of Marvel Studios for inspiration: “It would be a lofty goal to say we’re following in their footsteps, but certainly we’re taking inspiration from that.”

With a library of more than 100 original properties ranging from adventure to sci-fi to action to mystery to horror, PlayStation Productions has a wide breadth of content ripe for adaptation. “Instead of licensing our IP out to studios, we felt the better approach was for us to develop and produce for ourselves,” says Qizilbash. “One, because we’re more familiar, but also because we know what the PlayStation community loves.”
