Talk of a film based on the beloved PlayStation 2 game Shadow of the Colossus has existed since 2009, when the adaptation was first announced. Since then, the project has effectively stalled—but with Sony’s recent announcement of a new director, the film might finally become a reality.
Sony Pictures announced on Sept. 4 that Mama director Andrés Muschetti will direct the adaptation, which is being penned by Hanna scribe Seth Lochhead. Lochhead has been attached to the project since January 2013, when Josh Trank was set to the direct the film. Since then, Trank’s schedule quickly filled up with major franchise »

In case you were wondering, yes, the Shadow of the Colossus movie is still in the works and now it's gotten a change up in the directors. When the film was initially announced, Josh Trank (the Fantastic Four reboot) was set to direct the video game adaptation, but it looks like his new duties on an upcoming Star Wars spin-off is going to keep him away from the project. Never fear, however, as a new director has been chosen. Come inside to find out more!
THR broke the news last night that Sony Pictures have brought in the horror film director Andres Muschietti (Mama) to replace Josh Trank on the upcoming adaptation of the classic PS2 game, Shadow of the Colossus.

It's been five years since Sony Pictures announced that it's turning the "Shadow of the Colossus" video game into a movie. At one point Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) was on board to direct, but now comes word that that's no longer the case. Sony just announced that it replaced Trank with Andres Muschietti (Mama), who'll be directing from a script by Seth Lochhead (Hanna). "We knew we had our director once we heard Andy's take on the material . it was genius," said Sony. "The themes, characters and supernatural elements of the story have incredible international appeal with fans of the game in the millions." The game centers on the character Wander, who along with his horse Agro travels across a Western-style landscape to defeat enemies known as Collosi, with Wander's larger aim to save the girl Mono. It was released back in 2005 and quickly became a huge hit, selling more than 2.7 million copies worldwide. »
Update 9/4/14: Last we heard about Sony's Shadow of the Colossus movie it was being developed for Josh Trank to direct. Once Trank landed Fantastic Four and a Star Wars spin-off, however, it became pretty obvious he was not going to be making that movie anytime soon. Sony hasn't given up on the video game adaptation, though, and the studio has now hired Mama director Andy Muschietti to captain a new version that will be written by Seth Lochhead (Hanna). We still don't have a timeline for the movie, but see below for more info about the fantastic, award-winning game it's based on. Previously 5/23/2012: Chronicle helmer Josh Trank has been a busy fellow since that modestly budgeted film became a box office success – and he’s...

Chronicle and The Fantastic Four director Josh Trank was originally set to helm Shadow of the Colossus for Sony Pictures. However, his commitment to one of the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movies has resulted in the studio turning to Mama’s Andrés Muschietti to direct the video game adaptation.
Seth Lochhead (Hanna) is penning the screenplay. Shadow of the Colossus is set in an epic-scale world filled with mythic giants and disembodied spirits, and the story will follow a young man attempting to save his lost love by accomplishing a seemingly impossible task…the destruction of the colossi who roam the forbidden land. The game was a thing of beauty and the movie could be truly epic.
“We knew we had our director once we heard Andy’s take on the material – it was genius,” Sony’s Michael De Luca said in a statement released today. “The themes, characters and »

For a while, it appeared that Chronicle’s Josh Trank would be the man to tackle the film adaptation of Sony PlayStation title Shadow Of The Colossus. But with Trank busy on Fantastic Four and one of the Star Wars spin-off films, a new director is called for, and Mama’s Andy Muschietti is stepping into the breach.The strange and beautiful game focuses on a character called Wander, who must, er, wander through a cursed waste called the Forbidden Land and slay 16 enormous "colossi" (this basically involved searching a creature hundreds of times your size for the tiny "glowy bit" where they are vulnerable) in order to save the life of a girl, Mono. The title was much praised for its gorgeous art and high-quality score, and is sufficiently bare bones of plot that there is lots of room for scriptwriters to find a story. While Justin Marks was »
Hands up if you loved Mama! That sneaky little horror from Universal crept up from out of nowhere, landing a wodge of good reviews and a $146 million worldwide box office. Not bad for a small-time Argentinian director with few credits on his resume, right?
Well, as it turns out, Andres Muschietti may be a name you’ll be more familiar with in the future, as Sony Pictures has hired the director to tackle his first video game adaptation, Shadow Of The Colossus.
The Playstation mega-hit was a bestselling game for Sony, which sold 2.7 million copies. Commended by fans and critics alike for its realistic world building, the game adaptation is much-anticipated. Set in a fantasy world, the story follows a young man who believes his true love to be dead. Armed with the knowledge of a demon who can rouse the dead, he sets off into an epic world filled with a host of beasties. »

Look what’s back in the news again, Shadow of the Colossus. Sony’s been working on this video game adaptation since 2009 and, at one point, the studio even recruited Josh Trank to make it his Chronicle follow-up. Clearly that never panned out, but now the studio’s found someone else to helm the project, Mama director Andres Muschietti. Muschietti hasn’t delivered a new film since Mama’s 2013 release, so Shadow of the Colossus would only be his second feature, but had Sony moved forward with Trank, he would have been in the same position as well, so perhaps harvesting new talent through a big budget film is a prime goal here. Hit the jump for more on the Shadow of the Colossus movie. The Jungle Book’s Justin Marks was busy working on the script early on, but now Sony Pictures confirmed that Hanna co-scribe, Seth Lochhead, will »

Once slated to be at the helm of Universal's reboot of The Mummy, the studio's Mama director Andrés Muschietti will enter the realm of fantasy at Sony Pictures instead. Deadline has word that Muschietti will be at the helm of the video game adaptation Shadow of the Colossus, a project that has been in the works since 2009. Back in 2012, Chronicle director Josh Trank was brought on board the project, but it looks like he's fallen away. Muschietti will also oversee a new script from Seth Lochhead, who wrote the action thriller Hanna (a revisionist fairytale of sorts), and we're glad the director ended up with this film. The story takes place an ancient land where creatures the size of mountains roam the majestic landscape. Bound to the land, these creatures hold a key to a mystical power of revival--a power you must obtain to waken a loved one. And so »

The director of the Guillermo del Toro-produced film Mama, Andres (Andy) Muschietti, has been hired to helm the big screen adaptation of the video game Shadow of the Colossus for Sony Pictures.
A feature film version of this game has been in development at the studio since 2009, and it looks like they are finally ready to move forward with it. The initial script for the film was written by Justin Marks, and Chronicle director Josh Trank was attached to direct it at one point, but those plans obviously fell through.
Hanna screenwriter Seth Lochhead was hired to work on a new draft of the script a year ago. He's still attached and will be working with Muschietti on writing the new screenplay. The game’s story focuses on a young man named Wander, who rides around on his trusty steed Argo, traveling a world where he has to defeat »

Saoirse Ronan seems to be trying very hard to carve her own little niche in cinema. From Hanna to The Host to Byzantium, Ronan has been building a career as a teenage action star in dystopic/post-apocalyptic worlds. And her latest film, How I Live Now, is another entry on that resume.
Britain is on the brink of World War Three, and American Daisy (Ronan) is forced to spend the summer at her aunt’s country home. The house is full of her rambunctious cousins—Isaac (Tom Holland), Piper (Harley Bird), and Eddie (George MacKay)—but her Aunt Penn (Anna Chancellor) has business to deal with and leaves the children alone during this turbulent time. Daisy tries to keep to herself but Isaac is keen on including her, and Eddie is so devastatingly handsome and mysterious that Daisy just can’t help herself (Isaac is also quick to mention that »

"Deliver Us From Evil" is the latest sweaty summer offering from Scott Derrickson, the co-writer/director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and "Sinister." Eric Bana stars as Ralph Sarchie, a special ops police officer in one of the most dangerous precincts in Manhattan. Sarchie and his partner (played by Joel McHale) are used to seeing the worst that humans can do to each other, but some of the crimes on their beat have a supernatural flavor to them. Enter Father Mendoza (Edgar Ramirez), a priest who smokes and drinks and performs exorcisms. Sarchie's no believer, but when things start going bump in his house -- and threatening his wife (Olivia Munn) and child -- that's another story.

Eric Bana always impresses me. The actor has continued to give strong performances throughout his remarkable career including Munich, Hanna, and the recent Lone Survivor. In Deliver Us From Evil, Bana takes on the real life character of NY police officer Ralph Sarchie, a man who deals heavily with supernatural phenomena. We are talking demonic possessions and the like. When I sat down with the actor, he talked about taking on this darker role. As an actor not associated with horror, it was »
In the latest entry of an increasingly popular trend, actor Hugh Jackman has taken to social media to send out a behind-the-scenes image from his next film, Pan. The shot gives us our first look at how his character, the pirate Blackbeard, will look in this latest big screen take on Peter Pan.
It's a markedly different look than he had while hosting Sunday night's Tony Awards.
