Crossfire to be made into a movie

Local video game company Smilegate is partnering with Sony Pictures to adapt its popular game Crossfire into film, the company reported on Thursday.

Crossfire, launched in 2007, is a popular first-person shooter game that has 1 billion registered user across 80 countries, according to the company.

Tenant Pictures will co-produce and invest in the film.

Smilegate announced that they will be working with Hollywood in 2015 and formed a production contract with producer Neal Mortiz of the “Fast and Furious.” Screenwriter Chuck Hogan of the Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is reported to have finished the film adaptation’s first version of the script in 2017.

“We will try to set a precedent that shows how the gaming industries’ business models can be diversified through a film,” Paek Min-jung, vice president of the company’s brand marketing department said.
