Screenrant has exclusively reported that the previously announced Ghost of Tsushima film from 2021 by director Chad Stahelski now has a script that is “ready to go.” Additionally, the creative team is close to making substantial progress, but the ongoing strikes have prevented further action.
Stahelski’s direct statements are quoted below:
“We have a script, we’re very close to getting our s–t together on that, as well. Development is always tricky, it’s studios, it’s strikes, and availabilities, and scouting. You have to will things into existence. I think the two things that I am closest and most interested in are Highlander and Ghost of Tsushima. Both amazing, amazing properties, the story of Ghost is, also, one of my favorite properties of all time.”
Stahelski is well-known for the John Wick movies, and for Ghost of Tsushima, he reportedly desires an all-Japanese cast to express themselves in their native language.

Ghost of Tsushima is an action-adventure stealth game by Sucker Punch played in the third-person. Players can explore an open world as the last samurai, Jin Sakai, without guidance as they make their way across Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan in the 1270s.
During gameplay, players can utilize samurai techniques to take down opponents using weapons such as a Katana or ascend walls using a grapple to take a silent approach to their kills. Throughout battles, Jin will master new skills and abilities to defeat the Mongol Empire.
