Sony developing Shadow of the Colossus movie
Posted 23 May 2012 - 05:02 PM
A movie based on Team Ico's beloved PlayStation 2 adventure Shadow of the Colossus is currently in the works at Sony Pictures, according to a Deadline report.
Josh Trank, the man behind this year's solid found-footage superhero flick Chronicle, has signed on to direct the live action adaptation and is currently looking for a scriptwriter.
No indication was offered as to when the film might arrive in cinemas or who might be cast in the leading roles.
For the uninitiated, the 2005 game tells the story of a young man who sets out on a quest to slay 16 giants in an attempt to revive a girl named Mono.
Trank is apparently a huge fan of Team Ico's work and deliberately sought out the project.
The game recently saw an HD re-release on PlayStation 3, picking up a 9/10 from Eurogamer's Christian Donlan. See the full Shadow of the Colossus HD review for details.
PC: i5-3570K, 2GB 660Ti, 1 TB Caviar Black, Z77, 8GB 1600 RAM
Latop: i3-380m, 500GB HDD, 4 GB RAM

Not sure if I'd want to see this in movie form anyway. It'd need some deep changes/additions. The narrative is perfect for a video game but it isn't nearly enough to carry a movie. I'm not against changes inherently but I love Shadow for very specific reasons and I'm not sure those could successfully be put on screen, it'd have to change into something else entirely.
Unless they'd go full-on "artsy" with it. Which would be amazing.

The film adaptation has nothing to do with Team ICO.
