Slime Rancher film adaptation is in the works

Life sim adventure game, Slime Rancher, is getting the adaptation treatment. Considering the Monomi Park title has since breached five million units sold, and its sequel selling 300,000 in its week on Steam, it’s not too hard to see why it might be an attractive IP to bring to the big screen.

Right now, details are slim, no director is attached nor are any actors, per Deadline. While we’re sure someone a part of its production company is involved as a producer, we can’t say for sure who yet.

The studio behind this upcoming film is Story Kitchen, which appears to want to make video game adaptations its bread and butter. The studio — or its main trio of founders — has worked tirelessly to bring multiple adaptations to the forefront. Most recently, they’ve been greenlit and working with Netflix on adaptations of the classic Tomb Raider and Splinter Cell franchises. Meanwhile, they’re also working on Toejam & Earl, Streets of Rage, Sifu, and It Takes Two adaptations all set up with Amazon and Lionsgate, though, Sifu is still a mystery.

It’s worth pointing out with the success of recent video game adaptions like Sonic the Hedgehog and — definitely — The Super Mario Bros. Movie, it’s a lot more possible the days of every video game adaptation being a drag might be behind us… hopefully.
