Although Fortnite has been on the market for more than 4 years, the idea of making a movie about this game has recently appeared. Epic came up with the idea of producing a full Fortnite movie.
The above news comes from a paid article by The Information. Epic’s movie idea is seen as an attempt to diversify after the lawsuit with Apple. The Information reports that Epic wants to start entering the entertainment sector focused on “scripted video content.”
Plans to create an entertainment division took shape after Epic hired three executives from Lucasfilm earlier this year, including Jason McGatlin, a former vice president of production at the Star Wars studio.
Epic has yet to officially confirm the Fortnite movie project. Several of his employees told The Information that internal discussions took place and a movie was mentioned. However, the close relationship between Epic and Hollywood will increase the viability of this film project.
