Sony plans to work with South Korea-based “Crossing the Line” developer Smilegate to produce the “Crossing the Line” movie, according to exclusive information frommedia Variety. Tencent Pictures will co-produce and fund the film. The 2016 Warcraft movie hit the mainland with $1.6 billion, giving major gaming companies a first-hand look at the wonders of super-game IP-induced box-office.
Tencent, the country’s richest and most prolific gaming company at the time, said it would bring The League of Heroes to the big screen at the right time.
What I didn’t expect was that the “Hero League” movie didn’t come, but “Crossing the Line of Fire” was adapted into a movie.
Chuck Hogan, author and screenwriter of the novel “The Standoff” and “Rogue City,” is reported to have written a screenplay for the movie “Crossing the Line of Fire”, while Neal H. Moritz, producer of Speed and Passion, will be the producer.
Speaking of the “Crossing the Line of Fire” game, at its peak, the game had more than 1 billion registered players, while the number of online users was 6 million. But when the transit, if the game’s heat is not as good as before, it will not only make box office revenue, but also increase the game’s heat.
