Big Screen Adaption For Sega’s Shinobi Announced

One of the toughest gaming franchises in the late 80s was Shinobi. It appears the master ninja is back, and going to kick our ass on the big screen.

Producer Marc Platt has partnered with Sega to develop a film franchise based on the video game, according to Deadline.

“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen. We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games,” said Platt.

No production timeline or casting was announced. MFR will bring you more details as they become available.
