OD: Hideo Kojima and Jordan Peele Announce Their Upcoming Project Starring Sophia Lillis and Hunter Schafer

Hideo Kojima may not have been able to push through with his collaboration with Guillermo del Toro, but he has found another horror auteur to work on his upcoming project.

At The Game Awards 2023, they announced Kojima’s upcoming game OD starring Sophia Lillis (IT), Hunter Schafer (Euphoria), and German actor Udo Kier (Hunters). Watch this:

We don’t really see much from the trailer besides the actors’ faces, but each of them reads this line with varying degrees of emotion:

“The hungry purple dinosaur ate the kind zingy fox, the jabbering crab, and the mad whale and started vending and quacking.”

We don’t know exactly what Kojima is building up to, but the sentence is an example of a phonetic pangram, a phrase/sentence containing all the phonetic sounds of the English language.

If you also look closely at Lillis’ eyes in the last shot, you’ll see that a door with light opens before she screams out in horror.

Besides Kojima and the star-studded cast, the biggest reveal about OD is that Jordan Peele (Get Out, Nope) has also been announced to be involved in the project. We don’t really know what to expect when it comes to a collaboration between the two, but the word ‘immersion’ has been thrown around a lot. Kojima’s statement translated:

“It is a game, don’t get me wrong, but it’s at the same time a movie but at the same time a new form of media.”

With Kojima’s last game Death Stranding being a PlayStation exclusive, it looks like Kojima is going to be bringing OD to Xbox, and he also mentions that his team is going to be working with Xbox Game Studios and making use of their cloud gaming technology.

Hopefully more about the “game” will be revealed soon, but I’m suspecting this could launch sometime late 2024 or mid-2025.

No release date has been set for OD.
