Kojima will have to rewrite Death Stranding 2 if Elle Fanning turns down the role
Author game designer Hideo Kojima has revealed that most of the upcoming Death Stranding 2 (officially revealed at The Game Awards 2022) would have had to be rewritten if actress Elle Fanning had turned down the role.
Speaking on A recent episode of his Brain Structure podcast, Kojima revealed that he “wanted to use Elle’s talent and charm to create a character unlike any other”. Apparently, Kojima even changed parts of the game’s script based on her character’s movements before the actress accepted the part. Kojima muses that “I’ll have to pull out the scenes I wrote because she plays a major role.”
Little is known about Fanning’s character, but it’s clear that her participation in the sequel was essential in Kojima’s mind, as he explains “I can’t really share much, but she’s a very important character. And Yes, I created the character. With Elle in mind. So I was worried about her turning down the offer.”
Death Stranding 2 does not currently have a release date. In general, Kojima seems to be pushing the envelope further, as the sequel will feature amazing technology that allows for some truly mind-blowing visuals.
