Legendary Digital Studios have acquired the rights to adapt the cult hit video game Life is Strange.
The game sees high school student Max Caulfield discover she has the power to rewind time. She and her friend Chloe Price then set out to investigate the disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber, uncovering a dark underbelly to their hometown of Arcadia Bay.
“Life is Strange really differs from what people think of gaming,” Greg Siegel, Senior VP of Development and Production for Legendary, told The Hollywood Reporter. “Because there’s such a focus on character, there’s an emotional connection to the story that doesn’t happen with other games.”
A writer and a director are still being considered.
