Brett Ratner Confirms God of War Movie

240 Comments

Now I don’t know if Brett Ratner is dreaming of becoming the next Uwe Boll or what, but as far as I can tell, he’s made mention that he wants to direct two movies based on videogames — “God of War” and “Guitar Hero”. When the whole “God of War” rumor surfaced a while back, it was just a rumor. Now, er, not so much. Brett Ratner has confirmed that he will, indeed, be directing a movie version of the game “God of War”, which as far as I can tell, is about some tattoo dude who, like, beats people up in Ancient Rome. Or something. Unsurprisingly, I’ve never played the game. Can you tell?

Says UGO (rather snarkily, I might add):

We caught up with him recently and confirmed either your greatest dream or biggest fear: Brett Ratner is indeed making a movie based on the video game series, God of War. Honestly, I love the Kratos games, however, they aren’t exactly the deepest when it comes to story, so he might just be the right person to handle the film adaptation.

You can see Brett Ratner talking to UGO about waiting for the script for “God of War” to be approved so he can start shooting here.

Meanwhile, here’s a little about what the game is all about:

Unleash the power of the Gods and embark on a merciless quest as Kratos, an ex-Spartan warrior driven to destroy Ares, the God of War. Armed with lethal double chainblades, Kratos must carve through mythology’s darkest creatures – including Medusa, Cyclops, the Hydra and more, while solving intricate puzzles in breathtaking environments. Driven by pure revenge, nothing can stop Kratos from achieving absolution.

The game has already spawn a sequel, the imaginatively titled “God of War 2″.

    [..."Whoever is cast to play Kratos, shoud look as much like him as possible. No Jake Gillenhalls or any crap like that- I mean have u seen that guy in the Prince of Persia pics out there- it looks like a joke!">>>]

    I agree with Kevin G. The Jake as prince isn’t really working. Casting should look like the character. body type and everything. They should be required to shave their head bald…thats how serious it should be.
