The studio is fast-tracking the project toward production with the goal of launching a possible franchise. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for Columbia.
“We’re excited to be working with Sony to bring the iconic world of Catan to life,” Katz said. “As huge fans of the game, we’re struck by the endless possibilities of stories that it could inspire. It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to work in a world beloved by millions of people »
