A live-action adaptation of Sony Playstation’s hit video game franchise God of War has been ordered to series on Amazon’s Prime Video.
Rafe Judkins (Wheel of Time) will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series with Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Iron Man) writing the script and executive producing. The show is a co-production between Amazon Studios and Sony Picture Television in association with PlayStation Productions.
For those unfamiliar with the video game, it follows Kratos, the God of War, who, after exiling himself from his blood-soaked past in ancient Greece, hangs up his weapons forever in the Norse realm of Midgard. When his beloved wife dies, Kratos sets off on a dangerous journey with his estranged son Atreus to spread her ashes from the highest peak — his wife’s final wish. Kratos soon realizes the journey is an epic quest in disguise, one which will test the bonds between father and son, and force Kratos to battle new gods and monsters for the fate of the world.
