News: Myst TV and film rights picked up by The Matrix co-producers

The film and TV rights to classic point-and-click adventure game Myst have been acquired by production company Village Roadshow, the company has announced in a statement released last night.

The company, who were co-producers on films like The Matrix trilogy, The Lego Movie and Ready Player One, say they intend to ‘rely on and expand upon the game’s existing mythology to develop a multi-platform universe including film, scripted and unscripted television content.’

The company is said to be taking a ‘full-scale approach to developing MYST into content across all divisions with the Company’s entire creative team working together to adapt these projects across film and television’ so it sounds like multiple projects may be in the works. 

Myst was, until 2002, the best selling PC game of all time and has had a number of re-releases on many platforms, though its last major outing was Myst V: End of Ages, which was published by Ubisoft all the way back in 2005.
