Amazon Prime Video is reportedly in advanced talks to acquire the TV adaptation of the popular “God of War” video game.
According to Variety, Prime Video is negotiating with Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions for the project.
The series hails from Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby of The Expanse fame and The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins.
The video game, which first launched in 2005, is based on ancient mythology and follows the story of the titular protagonist, Kratos, a Spartan warrior and later god of war, who was brought to kill his family by his former master, the original Greek god of war Ares.
The series adaptation will focus on Kratos’ journey through the Greek world, following a path of revenge after being tricked into killing his family by the Olympian gods.
