Video game movies don’t exactly have the best reputation, but Sony Pictures seems intent on changing that. Announced in 2009, a film based on Fumito Ueda’s “Shadow of the Colossus” seems a bit closer to reality.Today, Deadline New York announced that Josh Trank, the man who directed the sleeper hit Chronicle, would be directing the film. Interviews for writers are currently ongoing.

According to Deadline, Trank is a fan of the game, and was active in pursuing the title. Creator Fumito Ueda is also said to be involved. The game’s gigantic, or colossal, as it were, “Colossi” seem like a perfect fit for the Silver Screen. They are sure to provide a visual effects spectacle.

No release date for the film has been revealed as of yet.

About Devin Kotani

Devin is a Canadian, and as such, plays hockey (no he doesn’t) and drinks maple syrup (not really) while riding a wild moose (he’s never seen a moose). When he’s not perpetuating cultural stereotypes, he’s playing videogames, which has been, on occasion, very bad for his mental health, problems with which have plagued him for years. Now, at 20, he’s getting his mental health issues under control, and he’s trying to decide what to do with his life. He’s currently debating between journalism and trying his hand at the dramatic arts.




  • Trank’s previous movie, Chronicle, is one of the best movies I’ve seen the past year. If his human story of teens getting superpowers is any indication, I’m sure he’ll do Ueda’s gaming masterpiece well.
