Story Kitchen has partnered with Sloclap Studio to adapt the Sifu bitmap into a full-length feature film. The script will be written by Derek Kolstad, the author of "John Wick".
The events of Sifu unfold in modern China and tell about a student of a martial arts school master taking revenge on the killers of his mentor.
The peculiarity of the story is that thanks to the magical talisman, the hero is resurrected after each death, but at the same time he gets older over and over again.
The film is described as a mix of "John Wick" and the mystical thriller "Time" directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The original Sifu was released in February of this year.
The game sold over 1 million copies in the first three weeks and received several nominations for The Game Awards 2022, including in the categories "Best Independent Game", "Best Fighting Game" and "Best Action".
