Italian game studio LKA, UK publisher Wired Productions and Swedish film-production company Studios Extraordinaires are teaming for a feature film adaptation of the video game “Martha Is Dead”
The story unfold in the war-ravaged landscape of Tuscany in 1944. The haunting narrative unfolds against the backdrop of World War II. We follow Giulia, a young woman ensnared in a chilling mystery following the death of her twin sister, Martha.
The story blends the lines between reality, superstition, and the tragedy of war. Wired Productions Managing Director Leo Zullo says: “The game’s gripping narrative and unique setting make it a perfect candidate for a film adaptation.”
Currently in active development, the film adaptation is being shaped in close collaboration with the game’s creator Luca Dalcò. Dalcò, founder and director of LKA, says:
“Every element of ‘Martha Is Dead’ was created with extraordinary precision and care. The narrative’s complexity was meticulously planned, visualized, and even shaped with a cinematic quality in mind. Bringing this to life as a film is a dream come true.”
André Hedetoft and Andreas Troedsson are attached to the feature film as co-directors. The former also serves as screenwriter the latter as cinematographer.
