Kojima Productions opens TV, film and music division in Los Angeles
Kojima Productions is expanding its reach, spanning video games to music, television, and movies. This new division was started in Los Angeles, California, and is headed by Riley Russell.
As reported by GameIndustry.biz, Russell had a 28-year career at PlayStation where he was Vice President of Business Affairs and General Counsel. His new role will see him bring Kojima Productions into a new era.
“The team’s charter is to expand the reach and awareness of the properties currently in development at Kojima Productions, and to integrate them even more into our popular culture,” said Russell. “Although we are a global organization, the new business development team will be centered in Los Angeles, California. We are truly excited and looking forward to working with the best talent in entertainment, across all entertainment industries. ”
Since the goal is to extend the reach of “properties currently under development at Kojima Productions”, it could be to develop adaptations or extensions of existing video game worlds. Death Stranding already has a prolific TV and movie star at the helm, after all.
The news is hardly surprising considering the number of stars Kojima brings to his games. Death Stranding alone includes Edgar Wright, Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo Del Toro and Norman Reedus – these contacts could be useful for any upcoming productions.
“Finding new ways to entertain, engage and deliver value to our fans is essential in an ever-changing and ever-changing world of storytelling,” added Yoshiko Fukuda, Business Development Manager. “Our new division will take the studio into even more areas that showcase our creative stories beyond video games and open up ways for our fans to communicate and immerse themselves in these spaces.”
The Division just opened, so we’re unlikely to see anything anytime soon, but in the meantime, you can play the recently launched Death Stranding Director’s Cut. It’s available now on PlayStation 5, while the Standard Edition is on PC.
