Firewatch Film Incoming, Campo Santo Teams With Production Company

Campo Santo and Good Universe are collaborating on film and video games projects.

Indie motion picture company Good Universe and indie game developer Campo Santo are teaming up to create a host of film and video game projects. The first project in this collaboration will be a film adaptation of Firewatch, according to a story by the Hollywood Reporter.

Firewatch came out earlier this year, featuring a fire lookout wandering through the wilderness trying to piece together clues to a larger mystery. His only companionship is his supervisor, who talks to him through his walkie-talkie. Firewatch starred Cissy Jones from The Walking Dead, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, and Batman: Arkham Knight's Season of Infamy DLC, and Rich Sommer from Mad Men, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and LBJ.

"When we met Good Universe we were floored by how they recognize, cultivate and produce incredible stories. It's rare you meet another group that shares so many of your values and makes the process of creating things even more exciting. We can't wait to see what we make together," said Campo Santo founder Sean Vanaman.

"Finding extraordinary content is incredibly exciting, and with the Campo Santo team, we felt an immediate simpatico with their utterly beguiling storytelling and amazing creative instincts," said Good Universe co-founder Joe Drake. Good Universe has previously worked on films like Neighbors, Evil Dead, This is the End, and 50/50.

There is no timetable on the Firewatch film at this point.
