I´ll take it but going on with the OVAs is what I really want.

Another live-action JoJo? Is this going to be in the same universe as the live-action film?

Ep 8 (DNA) hasn´t been adapted by the OVAs. Unlike ep 5 (Millionaire Village). So the article has a mistake. DNA is from the manga. Kushagara is, as stated, based on a story from a novel and isn´t by Araki. 66% of this will be new to anime onlies and 33% will be new to manga readers.
The Part 4 film didn´t feature Rohan so who knows about continuity but it makes no sense to tie-in with an unfinished flop. Yusuke Iseya who played Jotaro was also arrested for cannabis possession in 2020. He will never work again. (Light) drug offenses in Japan are harder to walk away from than... anything.

Kinda makes sense; Golden Wind was greenlit during the Ripples of Adventure event in 2018, but while this upcoming event looks as big in importance as that one, I'm still not holding my breath.

The April 2021 event is real. Will we get SO announced there? Likely. It concludes the original timeline. There are zero reasons to stop after 5/6th of the road. It's Part 7 and 8 I have way way less hope for.
SO and 2 more Rohan OVAs are destined but what about Dead Man's Questions? It is canon and only needs an ending. Pray for that one to not be left behind.
