Kojima Productions Opens Up New LA Division Focusing on TV, Film, and Music

Kojima Productions has announced the opening of a new film, music, and TV division in LA. Leading the new division is PlayStation veteran Riley Russel. Kojima Productions LA will focus on using the company’s IPs to create film, TV, and music projects. The news comes almost a decade after Konami originally announced the closing of Kojima Productions’ Los Angeles studio.
The new LA studio will be different from its predecessor though?and not just on the fact that it’s no longer under Konami. While the original Kojima Productions focused on game development and worked on titles such asMetal Gear Solid V, the new LA division will have a focus beyond video game media. Joining the team to head up the new division is Riley Russel, a 28-year industry veteran who previously served as PlayStation’s chief legal officer and VP of business affairs. Specifically, Kojima Productions LA will work with entertainment industry professionals in Los Angeles, meaning we may get some Death Stranding film and television adaptations soon.Russel certainly implies so, stating that the company will “be tasked with working with creative and talented professionals in television, music and film, as well as the more familiar games industry.” He later adds “The team has as its charter, the goal of expanding the reach and awareness of the properties now under development at Kojima Productions, and to make them even more a part of our popular culture.”
