Horizon Forbidden West: Meet The Cast Of Guerrilla Games’ Upcoming RPG In New Trailer

We’re closing in on the release of Horizon Forbidden West and PlayStation is releasing more and more about the game. Yesterday, Guerrilla Games released a new Forbidden West story trailer, and you can check out some exclusive details we learned about it after talking to the team, and now the studio has released a special “meet the cast” trailer. It begins with an introduction to protagonist Aloy’s voice actor, Ashly Burch, who explains that Aloy had to step into a new role as the hero of the world. She also touches on the more adversarial aspect of Aloy and Sylens’ relationship. And speaking of Sylens, Lance Reddick is returning to voice the character last seen in the post-credits scene at the end of Horizon Zero Dawn. He talks about Sylens’ egomaniac personality and how that shapes his relationships in Forbidden West.  Click here to watch embedded media We also meet Kotallo’s voice actor, Noshir Dalal. Both newcomers to the series, Kotallo encounters Aloy at a time when his life is in major crisis. Kotallo’s chief envisions a peaceful alliance in the Forbidden West and it’s Kotallo’s mission to champion his chief’s cause. Joining Kotallo as a new character in the world of Horizon is Tilda, who is voiced by Matrix alumn Carrie-Anne Moss.  “I play this very interesting character named Tilda who is quite a dynamic character,” Moss says in the trailer. “As an artist, there’s a lot of freedom in doing something like this. You get to be in the moment, getting thrown direction from the director, getting to try it over and over again; I felt like creatively, it was a lot of fun. There’s a lot of mystery to her – I don’t want to say too much – but she’s an interesting character and I loved playing her.” Next up is Varl, voiced by John Macmillan. As Macmillan notes, Varl has been on a “heck of a journey.” He says the writers did a great job of evolving the character in Forbidden West as he’s more mature and more willing to challenge Aloy when needed. Erend, voiced by John Hopkins, is back too. He talks about Aloy’s disappearance at the end of Zero Dawn, which sets up a fractured relationship at the start of Forbidden West. Macmillan and Hopkins said their relationship as Varl and Erend evolved quite a lot in the game as the two are the new main allies of Aloy.  We also get a few glimpses at some new concept art for Forbidden West, which you can view below:  Click image thumbnails to view larger version                                                                                                               While waiting for Horizon Forbidden West to hit PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on February 18, read what Guerrilla Games had to say about the game’s latest story trailer and then head to Game Informer’s Horizon Forbidden West hub, which features all kinds of new details from this month’s cover story.

    Lee Isaac Chung tapped to write/direct live-action Your Name

    After initially having Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) set to direct the live-action adaptation of Your Name, Paramount Pictures, Bad Robot Productions and Toho have shifted gears and tapped Lee Isaac Chung (Minari) to rewrite and direct the new take on Makoto Shinkai’s acclaimed anime, according to .

    Chung, who first found acclaim with his 2007 debut Munyurangabo at that year’s Cannes Film Festival, will be working off the most recent draft of the script penned by Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick), who was in turn working off the original draft written by Arrival‘s Eric Heisserer.

    Released in Japan in 2016 and in the US in 2017, the story centers on Tokyo highschooler Taki Tachibana and Mitsuha Miyamizu from the rural Itomori, who discover they have the ability to switch bodies with one another and as a natural disaster threatens to destroy their lives, they must journey to meet each other and save their worlds before it’s too late. It became a runaway success upon its release, grossing over $303 million in Japan alone, becoming one of the country’s biggest hits and spawning a bidding war when the rights to multimedia adaptations hit the market in 2017.

    Bad Robot’s J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) is set to produce the film alongside Genki Kawamura, a producer on the original project, with Toho handling Japanese distribution of the film and Paramount distributing it to all other territories.

    Following his 2007 acclaimed debut and a handful of acclaimed indie dramas, Chung recently returned with the A24 and Plan B Entertainment-produced Minari, which won the Grand Jury and Dramatic Audience Awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
