Mirror’s Edge is the next game IP to get the screen treatment, although this time it’s for TV as opposed to the cinema.
Deadline reports that Endemol Shine Studios, a division of Endemol Shine North America, has grabbed the rights to a TV action series.
We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience,” Endemol Shine Studios president Sharon Hall said. It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA Dice have done an amazing job establishing.”
If the series is to remain faithful to the game, expect some exciting parkour set pieces. Also expect a female lead in the form of Faith, and some very clean dystopian cityscapes.
The next game in the series, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, is due out on June 7th. The original Mirror’s Edge was released back in 2008.
