Developer Monomi Park’s Slime Rancher is one of Steam’s highest-rated games and an enormous commercial success, having sold over six million copies since launching in early access in 2016. The game recently received a sequel, Slime Rancher 2, which launched in September 2022 and remains in early access: and now as first reported by Deadline it’s getting a film adaptation.

Well, if you can turn Mario or Sonic into Hollywood blockbusters then why not the adventures of a Slime Rancher called Beatrix Lebeau? Monomi Park is partnering with Story Kitchen for the adaptation, which was specifically founded with videogames in mind: the senior talent includes John Wick creator Derek Kolstad, Sonic the Hedgehog producer Dmitri M. Johnson, and former APA agent Mike Goldberg. Story Kitchen’s currently working on film and TV adaptations of games including Tomb Raider, Streets of Rage, Sifu, Splinter Cell and Toejam & Earl.
