Hazelight Studios, the developer of last year's excellent co-op title It Takes Two, has partnered with dj2 Entertainment to adapt the game for film and TV, Variety reports.
“Creating the world and story in ‘It Takes Two’ was so much fun for me and the team,” said creative director Josef Fares. “Since it has a strong narrative with many crazy characters and just as crazy co-op action moments, the potential is huge for a great adaption to film or television.”
Currently, no studio or network is yet attached to the project, with the It Takes Two adaptation reportedly at the centre of a bidding war from multiple interested parties. However, we do know that Sonic the Hedgehog writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller, are attached to write.
“dj2 is honored to partner with Josef, Oskar [Wolontis], and the incredible team at Hazelight Studios on the linear media adaptation of It Takes Two,” said dj2 CEO Dmitri M. Johnson. “Just like the rest of the gaming world, we fell head-over-heels in love with Cody, May, Rose, Dr. Hakim and the imaginative fantasy universe Hazelight have created, and can’t wait to bring these characters -and this world- to life on the big and small screen.”
We had a fantastic time with It Takes Two in our review, and the co-op game has gone on to be a great success since it launched back in March 2021, selling over three million copies.
