Elden Ring Movie and TV Show Hype Grows Thanks to George R. R. Martin

Elden Ring Movie and TV Show Hype Grows Thanks to George R. R. Martin

Elden Ring writer George R. R. Martin has lent credence to rumors about a possible movie or TV adaptation of the game. Following the overwhelming success of Elden Ring, speculation has been rife about new directions the action-adventure title could take.

Some of these rumors have been fueled by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game’s director, who has mentioned that developer FromSoftware is open to exploring a movie or TV show with the right partner. Now, Martin has added more weight to these speculations with comments of his own.

In a post on his official blog, Martin hinted that behind-the-scenes developments might be occurring regarding an adaptation of Elden Ring. While he didn’t say this explicitly, he acknowledged the swirling rumors on the topic. To that end, Martin played coy, acting as if he knows nothing about the subject, yet his tone suggests he might be involved in something related to this endeavor.

“Oh, and about those rumors you may have heard about a feature film or television series based on Elden Ring… I have nothing to say,” Martin remarked playfully. “Not a word, nope, not a thing, I know nothing, you never heard a peep from me, mum mum mum. What rumor?”

If Elden Ring is indeed on its way to being adapted for the big screen or TV, it would make sense for Martin to be involved. Martin already has considerable experience with adaptations, given his ties to HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is based on his fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. As a result, he likely has connections with various people who could help bring an Elden Ring adaptation to life.

For now, many Elden Ring fans are still engrossed with Shadow of the Erdtree, the game’s significant expansion that was released just over a week ago. To date, Shadow of the Erdtree has already sold over 5 million copies, while Elden Ring as a whole has surpassed 25 million units.
