Hanna Writer Enters Josh Trank’s Shadow of the Colossus


Looks like former “Chronicle” director Josh Trank’s “Shadow of the Colossus”, his upcoming live-action adaptation of the Playstation 2 videogame of the same name, is moving along, with news that the production has hired a writer.

Seth Lochhead, who co-scripted the Joe Wright spy/actioner “Hanna”, has boarded “Shadow”. He will be working with Trank on the script and will rewrite an original draft by Justin Marks, who at one point in time, was the go-to guy for just about every geek project percolating in Hollywood. (Marks is also the man who gave us the award-winning “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li”. Here’s hoping Trank and Lochhead doesn’t ruin Marks’ genius script.)

I have no idea what “Shadow of the Colossus” is all about, but according to THR, the game revolves around a character name Wander, “who, riding his trusty steed Argo, travels a world defeating 16 colossal beings in order to resurrect a girl named Mono.”

Sounds about right for a PS2 game.

    Game is crazy action puzzles. Movie should be interesting if they do it right, with each Colossus being it’s own world basically. Also Marks scripts weren’t bad, but Hollywood seriously messed them up. Shame too cause his He-man and Voltron were on point!

    I’m not familiar with the game but the film sounds like it could be cool. Never the less, I’m way more interested in Trank’s upcoming FF reboot. When is that going to happen?!

      Probably going to be a while.
