Life Is Strange Is Getting A Live-Action Series

Legendary Digital Studios announced it is partnering with both Square Enix and dj2 Entertainment to adapt Life Is Strange into a live-action digital series. It is being co-produced by Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons, who both recently produced the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog film coming from Sony.

Senior vice president of development at Legendary, Greg Sielgel, announced the project today via press release, saying the game "lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings." Square Enix's VP of brand and European marketing, Jon Brooke, shared excitement for the project, saying the publisher is excited to "realize a new version of [game locations] Arcadia Bay and Blackwell Academy." The three companies – Square Enix, dj2, and Legendary – are currently meeting with potential writers for the series. No director has been announced. 

It was recently announced that Life Is Strange's first episode will be free indefinitely. We recently noted Life Is Strange's soundtrack in our feature looking the best uses of licensed songs in video games.
