Sony Plans Shadow Of The Colossus Film

Sony’s Columbia Pictures is planning a Hollywood adaptation of SCE's critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 title Shadow Of The Colossus. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li’s Justin Marks will write the script.
Sony’s Columbia Pictures is planning to create a Hollywood adaptation of Sony Computer Entertainment’s critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 title Shadow Of The Colossus. Information that first surfaced at the Hollywood Reporter says the film will be produced by Kevin Misher (The Interpreter, Public Enemies), with a script written by Justin Marks. Marks’ previous work includes the widely-panned Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and a forthcoming movie based on Japanese anime Voltron. As The Cut Scene comments, the game itself is not an obvious candidate for cinematic adaptation. It features few speaking parts, and despite positive reviews was only a minor hit on its original release in 2005. The game’s story is largely opaque until the very end of the game, when its connection to the previous ICO is made clear. The site reports that Marks will be fleshing out "some of the characters who appear only momentarily in the game", presumably referring to the character Lord Emon who appears at the game’s beginning and end.
