Horizon Zero Dawn adaptation on Netflix gets director

The adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn by Netflix has finally gained news

Streaming confirmed that Umbrella Academy showrunner Steve Blackman will be responsible for bringing the PlayStation classic to live action — and he teased some of what fans can expect from the show.

“ Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-structured game with wonderful characters that are rarely seen in games,” he explains. "So, yes, Aloy will be a central character in our story."

Still, Blackman points out that the idea of ​​the adaptation is not just to take the story and universe that fans already know from the games to another medium

According to the showrunner, the goal is to expand the franchise into a series aimed at all types of audiences – which should imply some changes and the creation of original stories

The good news is that, despite these possible changes, the focus on Aloy and the importance of the character is something that should be maintained

In the interview given to Netflix itself, he explained that his interest in storytelling is precisely in characters with this more marginal background
