Raw Fury – The Publishers Behind Gorgeous sable, the haunting sci-fi The Signifiers and Lovecraftian’s Lark Call of the Sea – have signed a new deal that could see its games get film and TV adaptations in the near future.
It revealed a “first-look arrangement” with dj2 Entertainment, the production company that was recently behind the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film and is currently working on the Netflix Tomb Raider anime series. Basically, this dj2 might call shotgun at adopting anything from Bad North to Backbone from Raw Fury’s weird and wonderful back catalog. You have to root for that last one, there’s a sad spy raccoon in it.
“Entering in a partnership with DJ2 seems a perfect fit for Raw Fury. Their creativity and ability to take the core of each game and turn it into new art forms is in line with Raw Fury’s vision and we are looking forward to working together and making this happen.” Excited to see what we will create,” said Raw Fury CEO Jonas Antonsen.
Also on the list of dj2 Entertainment’s current projects are the live-action television series adaptation of Life Is Strange and Disco Elysium, a film adaptation of Sleeping Dogs with Donnie Yen, and – Check notes – “half-hour live-action dramedy thriller”. John Wick on Talking Banana-led shooter My Friend Pedro with writer and producer, Derek Kolstad.
dj2’s founder and CEO Dimitri M. Johnson said, “Having access to an incredible slate of Raw Fury allows dj2 to start developing adaptations even before the game is released, taking a leap into the market as well as various media platforms. Allows for greater synergy between.”
