Johnny Depp Producing Video Game Adaptation ‘The Secret World’ for Television!

Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil has partnered with G4C Innovation’s Gudrun Giddings to produce The Secret World, a television series based on the globally successful MMO game The Secret World and its recently released reboot Secret World Legends, reports Deadline.

The TV adaptation, which is being written by James V. Hart (Hook, Crossbones) and Jake Hart, with former “CSI: NY” showrunner Pam Veasey on board as showrunner, will be based on the universe of the Secret World IP. It will center on a team of undercover agents and the shadowy war between secret societies: the Illuminati, Dragon and the Templar. Central to the plot is their battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world, and incorporates the realms of ancient myths and legends, as well as today’s conspiracy theories and headline news.

Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar and Gudrun Giddings will produce with Veasey.

Created by Norwegian developer and publisher Funcom, the original game was first published in 2012 as one of that year’s top games .

  • Eh… what? Don’t get me wrong – I enjoy TSW, but what? This game practically fell off the map until they re-released it. It switched from a B2P to a F2P model where those that spent money previously on things like the Massive Bundle ultimately got screwed (legit, we can’t even claim the weapons and stuff like we could before and our reprieve from that is not having to repurchase all the “classes”). Now it is getting a TV series? I’m seriously not sure how I feel about this, regardless of who is at the helm. Especially since it didn’t seem to do Defiance a whole lot of good in the end. I mean, I could be wrong… but yeah.

    • Having to use the reply option because the add gets in the way on mobile edit, but yeah. You can claim your cosmetics and unlock the classes, but that’s about it. Oh, and three character slots instead of one. If you wanna create a guild though, you gotta sub and the patron benefits aren’t that great.

    TSW has one of the best stories and worlds around so I’m more than happy for this.

    I think that’s a genius idea, and i’m glad someone if going to do it, the stories were so creepy in that game.

    This game is a twilight version of lovecraft. A travesty.

    Movie will be shit.
