Metro 2033 novel trilogy has become an irreplaceable addition to any sci-fi lovers’ library, and much like the books, the video game series has presented us with nothing but surreal perfection as well. The story written by Dmitry Glukhovsky depicts a post-apocalyptic world set in Russia, where humanity has experienced a downfall, and the remaining survivors were forced to settle and continue their existence deep underground, in the Moscow’s subterranean metro system.
Anyway, today’s news is not about the epic books, or the astounding video game series – today is about the upcoming Metro 2033 movie! While the writer has been approached for numerous occasions, this is the first time that he was really intrigued about the possibility. The filming should start in 2020, and the premiere is set for January 1st, 2022. In the author’s words:
“In Russia, I didn’t see any producers who could make a good [screen adaptation of] this book. It just seemed impossible. But now I finally met a team that I can entrust Metro with. Our ambitions turned out to be similar: to create a world-class blockbuster and stun even those who have read the trilogy and know it by heart. So as not to disappoint them, I am ready to become a creative producer of the movie and help create it with both my advice and action.”
We are more than psyched about the upcoming release, and while there are still more than 2 years of wait time, we wholeheartedly wish the whole filming and production team the best of luck. And as for the community, if you haven’t yet had the pleasure to deal with Metro 2033 video series, we have some captivating offers – don’t hesitate.
