Epic Games is considering a film adaptation of Fortnite. To do this, it is planned to create a new entertainment division that will shoot films and TV series. According to The Information, the company is going to engage in film production due to the decline in revenue caused by the absence of Fortnite in the App Store on the iPhone.

According to the source, Epic Games has hired three Lucasfilm employees, including former studio vice president Jason McGatlin. The latter previously served as a producer of Star Wars films and other Disney creations, and now holds the position of head of special projects at Epic Games. He will be joined by Lynn Barr, Head of Business Operations, and Chris Furia, Vice President of Production Finance.

It is not yet known in what genre the upcoming picture will be shot and what kind of Fortnite will take when transferred to wide screens.
