Imaginary bananas are about to bust into the big screen. My Friend Pedro, the popular indie shooter is getting a television adaption by the creator of John Wick.

According to a report by GamesIndustry.biz, the fast-paced action game is being adapted for TV in collaboration with Legendary Television, 87North, and DJ2 Entertainment. Planned as an R-rated dramedy with 30-minute episodes.

What has OUR interest, however, is the head of the project. Derek Kolstad, the writer and creator of John Wick, will be leading as writer and executive producer. Alongside him will be David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, co-director of John Wick) as an executive producer. As far as fast, intense action films, these two have some serious accolades behind them. With My Friend Pedro sharing a similar degree of violent action, these might be the best folks for the job.

The project won't be entirely separated from the game, however. Mike Wilson, the CEO and co-founder of Devolver Digital (the game's publisher) is also listed as an executive producer.

The cinematic potential of My Friend Pedro comes as no surprise to us. This isn't even the first time, technically speaking. Devolver Digital released an anime style trailer to promote the game's launch. There's no indication that this will serve as a basis for the TV adaption, but it's a great example of what COULD be.



Everything else about the TV adaptation remains a mystery. The general plot, cast, release details, and so forth weren't revealed at this time.
