One of my all-time favorite PlayStation classics is getting the big screen treatment:


Josh Trank has signed with Sony Pictures to develop to direct Shadow Of The Colossus, a big scale live action adaptation of the bestselling Sony videogame. The film is being produced by Kevin Misher. The studio is interviewing writers to work with Trank, who after directing the $13 million sleeper hit Chronicle has become the go to guy for big popcorn pictures. Trank takes on a Fumito Ueda-created game that has a strong narrative arc, along with the obligatory creature quotient to get the visual effects crowd excited.

Drop everything and pick up the Ico HD Collection if you haven't yet played this masterpiece.

The script isn't even written, which means it isn't even funded yet. A far more accurate title to this thread would be "SOTC will never be released as a film!", as that is far more likely to happen given it's current progress.

We've seen a lot of these video game movie projects dry up over the past few years. Halo, Uncharted, Gears, etc. Movie companies aren't always as dumb as we think. They know that game movies bomb. Few companies want to take that risk.

Besides, I love this game too much to see it get slaughtered in translation to the big screen.
