In a recent 26-minute documentary conducted by BBC, Hideo Kojima announced that his game studio, Kojima Productions, will begin making films in the future. With its first project Death Stranding featuring a bevy of Hollywood names, including Norman Reedus, it makes the declaration sound like an inevitability.

“In the future, Kojima Productions will also start making films,” Kojima said. “If a person can do one thing well, then they should be able to do anything well.” Although there has been little to no detail on when we could expect the studio to make its first film, Kojima went on to say “I think within the next three to four years, everything will move to streaming—games, movies, and TV shows.”

He completes his statement by saying that when that happens, gaming, film, and television will be competing in the same space. Kojima is known for bringing cinematics into gaming via Metal Gear Solid for the PlayStation and is a known film fanatic. His games are infamously known for containing almost as much cutscene time as it does gameplay, which begs the question of why Kojima hasn’t ventured into film sooner.

Check out the documentary inside the making of Death Stranding above, then check out the new introduction trailer for Pokémon: Sword and Shield.
