Apologies if this was posted already.

Seth Lochhead tapped to work on big-screen adaptation of popular PlayStation 2 adventure game.


Sony Pictures has tapped Hanna co-writer Seth Lochhead to provide a screenplay for the upcoming film based on Shadow of the Colossus, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Josh Trank (Chronicle) will direct the Shadow of the Colossus film, with Kevin Misher (The Scorpion King, Public Enemies) on board to produce.

No actors for the film have been announced thus far, nor has a release window for the project.

Praised by reviewers on its release in 2005, the PlayStation 2-exclusive Shadow of the Colossus sold more than 900,000 copies in the US. The game follows a young warrior who has brought his fallen love to a faraway temple in the hopes of restoring her to health. According to a mysterious presence that dwells within the temple's walls, the only way to save this girl is to hunt down and destroy the 16 massive beasts that roam the surrounding lands.

MY HEAD



They better not cancel it i've been waiting for anything Shadow of the Colossus related since 2005..SONY MAKE A SEQUEL I'LL PAY FOR IT JUST MAKE THE DAMN THING!!!!!!!



I've never seen Hanna, so I can't judge based on that.

This movie on the other hand... no, I'm not excited for it. It's not because I dislike SoTC. Shadow of the Colossus is quite literally my favourite game of all time (#1 on my top 50). But it is a game. The attraction was very much in the gameplay, the immersion, the atmosphere. Take away the game aspect and it's a movie about a guy who rides around in silence for ten minutes then jumps on a monster and stabs it to death. Sixteen times.

I guess it could work, but I am 90% sure that it will not.

Pretty sure they'll change up the storyline and the main character's personality. Spiderman is different in the movies from what people expected him to be from the comics. (both the original and the amazing spiderman). <- Even if it is some minor changes. I mean what is the most they can do with the main character in SotC that some people will find awkward - add a voice? XD

My only concern is that I hope they just dont take off in a whole new path where it just goes away from the story or the basis of the game....kinda like what happened with the Resident Evil movies.....l0l.

No no no no change the character? really? die hard fans like me would never watch it, a new path WTF!! they better name it something other than shadow of the colossus.



How would they translate the story and experience from game to movie. This one is going to be hard. Can't just have 16 box fights. Cautiously optimistic.

You can't honestly tell me that you would watch 90 minutes of condensed SoTC gameplay video.

The cutscenes together are certainly not long enough and miss the entire point of the game.
