posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Argentine director Andrés Muschietti (Mama) is set to direct Sony Picture's live-action film adaptation of the Shadow of the Colossus PlayStation 2 game. Muscheietti will oversee the script by Hanna writer Seth Lochhead. Muscheietti's sister Barbara Muschietti and Kevin Misher will produce the film.
In director Fumito Ueda's original game, the young male protagonist begins slaying 16 colossi in hopes that the act will resurrect the dead maiden, Momo.
Josh Trank (Chronicle) was originally slated to direct but is helming the Fantastic Four reboot at Fox and a Star Wars-related project for Disney.
