In most recent Death Stranding PS4 news, rumors regarding actress Emma Stone’s involvement in the upcoming Kojima Productions project have been circulating the industry once more. This is because more hints have surfaced regarding the La La Land star’s participation in Hideo Kojima’s new game.
Previously, Star Wars: Rogue One’s Mads Mikkelsen–who is part of the Death Stranding cast–addressed such rumors that teased at a possible involvement from Stone. He said, “I can’t talk about that, but I really like that rumor. That’s a lovely rumor.” Now, however, more evidence points to a higher likelihood of such a rumor becoming a reality.
Emma Stone In Death Stranding PS4
A recent post from NeoGAF member opricnik revealed an image of what appeared to be Stone’s character in Death Stranding. The picture shows the actress sporting light hair, army garb, and black tear tracks cascading down her face. This is very similar to how Mikkelsen’s character has been shown in the most recent Death Stranding trailer. Such similarities have only further fueled the speculation on Stone’s inclusion in the Death Stranding cast.
However, other fans have chosen to slam such a ‘leak,’ claiming that the image was doctored and is ultimately fake. Still, as some fans have pointed out that the prospect of Stone joining the Death Stranding cast isn’t all that far-fetched. This is because the actress had previously ventured into the video game realm with 2012’s Sleeping Dogs, in which she portrayed the character Amanda Cartwright.
Hideo Kojima’s Take On The Rumors
While Kojima himself has yet to directly address the talks surrounding Stone and his upcoming game, it seems he had something to add to the grapevine as well. Just recently, Kojima posted a tweet that showed vinyls of La La Land and Death Stranding on a table together. This only added fuel to the fire, as it seemingly suggested that Stone would indeed be jumping into the Death Stranding gameplay.
Death Stranding PS4 stars Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo del Toro, and The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus. The Death Stranding release date has yet to be confirmed.
