EA working on Anthem movie ‘Conviction’ with District 9 director
Today Electronic Arts announced the exciting news that the publisher has been collaborating with Neill Blomkamp, the Academy Award-nominated director of science-fiction movies District 9 and Elysium, to bring the world of Anthem to life in a live-action movie.
Blomkamp has been impressed by Bioware’s Anthem ever since it was announced at E3 2017 and he tweeted about it. That tweet eventually prompted the start of this collaboration.
In Conviction, viewers will get a taste of what the vast world of Anthem looks like. The story is set decades before the beginning of the game and we’ll be seeing new characters.
Conviction will go live on the Youtube channel of Oats Studios, Blompkamps own studio, on February 14. Anthem itself launches February 22 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
