Chronicle’s Josh Trank to Helm Shadow of the Colossus Film
After directing the surprise-hit found-footage superhero film Chronicle, Josh Trank has been linked to a number of comic book adaptations, including a Venom film, a Fantastic Four reboot and even an adaptation of The Red Star. However, according to Deadline, he’s also in the running for a video game-based movie.
The game in question is Shadow of the Colossus, which debuted in 2005 for the Playstation 2. You play a character named Wander in a strange land looking for, and attempting to defeat, 16 giants called colossi. The game was produced by Sony, which is also behind the film. Pardon the pun, but that’s a mighty big property to tackle, especially if all those other films mentioned are moving along at the same pace.
