After Christopher Nolan appeared at the 2020 Game Awards to present its highest honor, the Game of the Year, the director has since sat down with the awards’ mastermind Geoff Keighly to answer a handful of fan-submitted questions. One of the topics that came up was the question of whether Nolan would ever consider adapting his blockbuster films into a video game.
His answer? “It’s definitely something I’m interested in,” Nolan said, though that answer came with certain caveats. He explained that the possibility had been raised previously with some of his works–he specifies that he had already gone “fairly far down the road with” Inception–though his biggest priority is making sure it’s done properly.
“You don’t want to just be doing a licensed game, you don’t want to just be tying in with something and using the brand established by the film,” he explained. He made the comparison to the flip side of the coin, film adaptations of video games, in that they have to be approached in the right way if they’re ever going to succeed.
