It Takes Two Will Get a Film and TV Adaptations

Hazelight Studios and dj2 Entertainment announced that they are working on It Takes Two adaptations for film and TV. The writers behind Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are attached to adapt the game for the screen.

Hazelight Studios has teamed up with dj2 Entertainment to work on the film and TV-series adaptations of It Takes Two – an action-adventure studio's hit created for co-op solely.

The game tells the players the story of Cody and May – parents of a little girl who are about to divorce – who turned into living dolls by magic and went on an adventure that is supposed to save them from a break-up. To return to normal, they have to go through the challenges and overcome difficulties trying to cooperate and work on their complicated relationship under the guidance of Dr. Hakim's magic book.

In an interview with Variety, Hazelight founder and creative director Josef Fares shared that he and his team really enjoyed working on It Takes Two. "Since it has a strong narrative with many crazy characters and just as crazy co-op action moments, the potential is huge for a great adaption to film or television,” he said.

dj2 CEO and founder Dmitri M. Johnson added that he was honored to work on the adaptation with Josef Fares and Hazelight Studio Manager Oskar Wolontis. He said: "We fell head-over-heels in love with Cody, May, Rose, Dr. Hakim, and the imaginative fantasy universe Hazelight have created, and can’t wait to bring these characters – and this world – to life on the big and small screen.”

Along with Hazelight and dj2, the writers behind Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Pat Casey and John Miller joined the film adaptation. No studio or network attached to the project was revealed. However, Variety's sources told that multiple parties are bidding on the subject. We also don't know yet which service or channel the series will be broadcast on or how the film will be distributed.
