This is news that should please all fans of the game and explosive action films, SIFU will be entitled to its cinematic adaptation supervised by one of the big names in the field.
The news comes to us from Deadline, generally very well informed, which reveals to us that the excellent SIFU will soon have the right to its adaptation to the cinema and can count on the pen of Derek Kolstad. If this name means nothing to you at first sight, know that he is neither more nor less one of the creators of John Wickultra lucrative saga carried by Keanu Reeves.

According to initial information from Deadline, SIFU should be particularly faithful to the game of Sloclap and would even take up the main lines. It will therefore be a question of revenge, redemption, bludgeoning bad guys in spades and the central character of the plot should also age visibly as in the game.
The film is moreover described there as a mixture of John Wick and movie Old by M.Night Shyamalan. In the latter, there is also talk of uncontrolled old age caused by a kind of curse. Something relatively similar to the magic pendant worn by the hero of SIFU in the game then.
It is quite amusing to see that SIFU, which is greatly inspired by classic or recent action cinematographic works such as old boy or John Wickprecisely, will also have the right to his own film.
For now, however, the project is still in its infancy. The casting has not yet been chosen and the first lines of the screenplay should only be written once Derek Kolstad has wrapped up the post-production of John Wick 4 which is scheduled for release in March 2023.
