Speaking about their collaboration with Chad and his production company 87Eleven Entertainment, Asad Qizilbash, Head of PlayStation Productions, told Deadline that they are excited to bring their vision of Jin's story to the big screen. He added that they love working with creative partners like Chad who are passionate about their games as it ensures the creation of rich adaptations which can excite new audiences and fans.
