We come from start the second.
yes one 2. Death Stranding is on the way. He had previously stated that he was working on a new project with Hideo Kojima in March 2020. We’ve never had one Confirmation of the existence of a second Death Stranding before. Now that the actor has confirmed it, the question remains as to what the game will be about. In fact, a Death Stranding sequel seems pretty unlikely, if you know the scenario of the game and its ending. But Hideo Kojima has surprised us many times, so it can’t be ruled out. but Reedus does not speak of a “sequel”, but of a “second”. So it could be a prequel game that tells a story Origins of what happens in Death Strandingor even one Game that takes place concurrently with the original gamebut from a different angle.
Del Toro introduced Norman Reedus to Hideo Kojima
Norman Reedus returns to the subject for the rest of the interview Process that led him to star in Death Stranding. The actor didn’t know Hideo Kojima yetthat Guillermo Del Toro has already encouraged him to take part in the project!
Q: How did this happen?
A: Guillermo Del Toro, who gave me my first role in a movie, called me and said, “Hey, there’s a guy called Hideo Kojima, he’ll call you, just say yes.” And I said, “What do you mean, ‘Just say yes’?” He says, “Stop being an idiot, just say yes.” Then I was in San Diego and Hideo came over from Tokyo with a big group of people and showed me what he was working on, a game called Silent Hill. I was blown away by what he showed me and said, “Yes, let’s do it.” It’s not Ms. Pacman, it’s so realistic, it’s so futuristic, it’s so intricate and beautiful, and I was blown away.
It took me maybe two or three years to complete all the MoCap sessions and all that. It takes a lot of work. And then the game came out and it won all these awards, it was huge, so we just started the second part of the project.
Q: How does it all work?
A: You go into these huge domes with thousands of cameras first, and they take a picture, a single picture from all these different angles with all the expressions you can possibly make with your facial muscles – so it takes a whole day. And then they kind of capture your DNA. I don’t know how to explain this, but they… Marlon Brando did it and I think Johnny Depp did it. I did it. They’re capturing your kind of… your “digital DNA,” as they call it. And what they can do is after you die, they can make movies with you for eternity.
