Russian companies promise ‘unprecedented’ investment in making the movie
Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novel “Metro 2033,” the basis for 4A Games’ successful and acclaimed Metro series of video games, will be adapted for a movie. Three subsidiaries of a Russian media conglomerate are behind the project.
The Metro 2033 movie is set for a 2022 premiere, according to Variety. Glukhovsky, in a statement, said that for years he turned down pitches to adapt his three novels for the screen, seeing no one capable of doing them justice. “But now I finally met a team that I can entrust Metro with,” he said. “Our ambitions turned out to be similar: to create a world-class blockbuster and stun even those who have read the trilogy and know it by heart.”
Glukhovsky said he would contribute to the production as a creative adviser. Producer Valery Fedorovich called the film “a dream project,” and said the producers — all owned by Gazprom-Media — will “invest an unprecedented sum in the production and promotion of this movie both in Russia and abroad.”
