Fort Solis is the kind of clever science-fiction tethering on the brink of science-fact that will stay with you long after you step away from the screen,” said Studios Extrairdinaires co-founders André Hedetoft and Andreas Troedsson in a statement. “Each character in the small cast brings a unique perspective and depth to the story and we can’t wait to bring its gripping narrative, cinematic setting, and stellar cast to life amidst the thrilling backdrop of the Martian frontier.”

The project is the fourth for Studios Extraordinaires, whose launch we revealed during the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The company’s slate already includes Aurora NoirExpeditions and Space Marshals. Hedetoft today told Deadline these remain in development with announcements set to follow soon.

Fort Solis, built on the game engine Unreal, launched in August. It’s available on Mac and Windows operating systems and PlayStation 5.

“The signing of this film and TV production deal with Studios Extraordinaires marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the Fort Solis IP,” added Piotr Kurkowski, CEO of Fallen Leaf, which has offices in Poland and the UK. “Through this partnership, we’re opening new gateways and avenues to explore the universe established in our debut title.”
