Ubisoft’s 2003 cult-classic Beyond Good & Evil is reportedly being adapted for film by Detective Pikachu and Goosebumps director Rob Letterman. Ubisoft Film & Television’s Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin are producing the feature for Netflix.
The Beyond Good & Evil movie will be a mix of live-action and animated shorts, which makes sense considering the source material has both humans and monsters.
The Netflix adaptation of Beyond Good & Evil is still reportedly in early development and hasn’t secured a writer just yet, so don’t expect a release date any time soon. Letterman is currently the only name attached to the movie’s creative team.
Set in the year 2435, Beyond Good & Evil is a single-player action-adventure that tells the story of Jade, a young action reporter investigating her government’s toothless defense against a centuries-long alien invasion. Using stealth, platforming, and combat, your goal as part of an underground resistance group is to unearth a suspected conspiracy connecting the dictatorship to the invading alien species.
