The big screen adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus has roamed the landscape and found a new director.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is set to be helmed by Spanish filmmaker Andres Muschietti, who previously wrote and directed the 2013 horror movie Mama. This will only be his second feature film, so needless to say its his biggest and most formidable project yet. Muschietti will take over from Chronicle director Josh Trank, who was originally attached to helm but dropped out due to commitments to other projects like The Fantastic Four and the second Star Wars spin-off.
Like the game, the Shadow of the Colossus movie will tell the story of a young wanderer, named Wander, who embarks on a quest to slay sixteen massive creatures known as colossi in order to resurrect his fallen lover. The story in the game isn’t as important as the visuals and the atmosphere, so don’t be surprised if the movie does something similar.
