Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the Cyberpunk tabletop, recently stated in a VGN interview, that having Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077 has opened new possibilities. One of them is a chance for a Hollywood movie.
“I can’t really say anything on [movie rights]. But with Keanu Reeves being tied up in things, it’s become much more of a possibility.”
When CD Project Red, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077, asked if any more Hollywood actors could appear in the game, they answered by saying “no comment.”
“There are things in video games that have much higher impact than I’ll ever have in tabletop. And that will change if we ever do a film for this thing”
There was a rumor regarding the appearance of Lady Gaga in the game, but so far we had no official confirmation. Honestly I think Lady Gaga would fit perfectly in the Cyberpunk universe.
“My favorite film is Blade Runner, but I recognize inherently that it’s a cerebral film and 2049 was even more cerebral. A cerebral film is not necessarily going to allow other people to enter that space and understand it, but at the same time you don’t want to do it totally action either.”
Honestly a movie could be great, especially if the game is a success and if we look at CDPR’s previous titles, then chances are this game will be as well.
