Ghost of Tsushima became one the most beloved PlayStation console exclusives in recent years when it was initially released for PlayStation 4 in 2020, before arriving on PS5 the following year.
Ghost of Tsushima offers tight combat, a mesmerising soundtrack, a superb cast of actors portraying its intriguing characters and it has gorgeous visuals. There’s a good reason why fans can't wait for the rumoured Ghost of Tsushima 2 to be announced by developers Sucker Punch Productions.

In our review of Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut on PlayStation 5, we said: “is undoubtedly the definitive way to experience Sucker Punch's open-world samurai adventure. Improved loading times, enhanced resolutions, smoother frame rates, and a slew of brand-new content make the 2020 game shine in new ways.”
At the time of writing, despite all signs hinting towards its pending existence, Ghost of Tsushima 2 is yet to be announced. However, we do know for a fact that a live-action adaptation is on the way. It will be directed by John Wick's head honcho, Chad Stahelski, so you know that it comes with lofted expectations.
2022’s Bullet Train actor Andrew Koji has previously said that he’d love to play the protagonist for Ghost of Tsushima, Jin Sakai, which would be an excellent casting choice. Yet, if there were to be one potential better casting choice it would be the voice of Jin Sakai himself from the PlayStation game, Daisuke Tsuji. “If I get to play Jin in the live-action Ghost of Tsushima, let it be known that I fully agree to doing butt nudity,” said the actor in a tweet quite literally willing to bare all in the adaptation.
What’s more, much like Andrew Koji, Daisuke Tsuji is no stranger to live-action performances. However, Tsuji’s likeness is also used in the Ghost of Tsushima video game. So casting Tsuji in the role of the live-action movie makes all the sense in the world. Seeing as we're talking casting choices, can we also get Hiroyuki Sanada to play Jin’s uncle, Lord Shimura, please?
A release date for the live-action Ghost of Tsushima movie has not been announced at the time of writing.
