DETECTIVE PIKACHU Director Rob Letterman Tapped To Helm Netflix's BEYOND GOOD & EVIL Adaptation

Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil video game is getting the movie treatment from Netflix and it looks like the streamer has found a director in Detective Pikachu and Goosebumps helmer Rob Letterman.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Netflix is in the very early stages of adapting Ubisoft's cult classic video game Beyond Good & Evil as a full-length feature film and they've just found a director in Rob Letterman (Detective Pikachu; Goosebumps). 

No writers are currently attached, so it may be a while before it gets off the ground, but like Letterman's previous directorial ventures, Beyond Good & Evil will be a hybrid live-action/animated feature.

Beyond Good & Evil takes place in the 25th century on a remote mining planet that is under alien attack. The military rulers that promised to defend the population may be in league with the invaders. In this environment, a young photojournalist named Jade is recruited to be part of an underground resistance movement.

The original game was released in 2003 and was widely considered a failure at the time of release, with plans for a trilogy ultimately abandoned. However, it managed to garner a cult following in the years since and after years of clamoring, Ubisoft finally announced that a prequel game was in development back in 2017.
