A live-action Gravity Rush film is in development from PlayStation Productions and Scott Free Productions. Secret Society of Second Born Royals director Anna Mastro is set to helm the film from a script by Emily Jerome (Panopticon).
The news comes courtesy of Deadline with the outlet reporting that, while it is being produced through Sony’s PlayStation Productions, it is unclear whether Sony will distribute the film. Gravity Rush, which was released in 2012, focuses on the leading character, Kat, who is an amnesiac with the ability to manipulate gravity. Throughout the game, Kat uses her abilities to defend Hekseville from gravity storms and the mysterious monsters known as the Nevi.
Along with directing Secret Society of Second Born Royals for Disney+, Mastro has directed episodes of The Runaways, The Bold Type, UnREAL, and Jane the Virgin. Gravity Rush will serve as her biggest directing credit to date. Most recently, she directed episodes of Netflix’s Echoes, which hit the streaming service last week. As for Jerome, she looks to be a relative newcomer to Hollywood. Her first script, Panopticon, has Anthony Mackie and Shailene Woodley attached to star, and Andrés Baiz (Narcos) on board to direct.
As of now, Gravity Rush does not have a release date.
