Sony is developing a film adaptation of Crossfire, the mega-popular online shooter that boasts over 1 billion registered users worldwide.
The Crossfire movie will be produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast and Furious, Sonic the Hedgehog), with a screenplay from Chuck Hogan (13 Hours, The Strain), according to Variety.

Sony has partnered with Crossfire developer Smilegate for the film adaptation. Tencent, the media conglomerate that published Crossfire in China, is co-producing and -financing.
The companies did not release details on plot or casting, nor did they announce a release window at this time.
The first-ever console version of the first-person shooter, CrossfireX, is coming “first to Xbox One” in 2020. Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind Control and Alan Wake, is assisting in development.
In other Sony film adaptation news, the company’s Tom Holland-led Uncharted movie was recently pushed back from December 2020 to March 5, 2021. The delay came shortly after the film lost its sixth director in Bumblebee’s Travis Knight.
