We knew Chronicle director Josh Trank was a big gamer from our recent interview with him, but now he's going to channel that passion for gaming into bringing Shadow of the Colossus to the big screen!
According to Deadline, Sony has signed the hot up-and-coming filmmaker to direct the movie and is out to writers to script the VFX-heavy film version of the popular game. Kevin Misher (Public Enemies, The Scorpion King) will produce.
Trank is also attached to the comic book movies Venom, Red Star and Fantastic Four Reborn.
Not sure how I feel about this. Fucking loved the game and I don't want to see it get the Super Mario, Street Fighter, Tomb Raider, etc treatment.
Besides, there was little to no story in the game so you could fill in the details yourself. Wonder what direction they're going to go with the movie.
