‘Bridge of Spies’ producer Marc Platt to bring SEGA’s ‘Shinobi’ to the big screen


You may not have heard of Marc Platt, but you do know a lot of his work in the geek realm. He has produced Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Timur Bekmambetov’s Wanted, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, and Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated film Bridge of Spies. He’s now partnered up with Stories International to develop and produce SEGA’s iconic video game franchise, Shinobi.

“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen,” Platt said. “We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games and brings this fascinating world to life for moviegoing audiences.”

“Marc, Adam and the team at Marc Platt Productions are the perfect partners to bring the beloved SEGA character Joe Musashi and the ‘Shinobi’ game franchise to the big screen,” Stories International President and CEO Tomoya Suzuki said. “We are thrilled to work with them.”

Stories International, an arm and joint venture with SEGA and Hakuhodo DY Group, is currently searching for studios, producers, and filmmakers to co-develop SEGA properties for film, television, and digital. These SEGA properties include popular SEGA franchises such as Virtua FighterCrazy Taxi, and Golden Axe.
