PACIFIC RIM Screenwriter Talks Teaser Trailer And GOD OF WAR Film Adaptation
Screenwriter Marcus Dunstan gives an update on the planned God Of War movie adaptation, which he's writing with Patrick Melton. He also teases what fans should expect from the trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim.
Speaking with Screen Rant, Pacific Rim screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton discuss their upcoming film projects, including the planned movie adaptation of the God Of War video game franchise. The duo previously stated that the film will be an origin story for protagonist Kratos, similar to Batman Begins, and will be a more "grounded" take on the character. Here, Dunstan gives an update on the adaptation, which he says has been "so fun" working on. "It’s bad ass. It’s been so fun. Working with that team, they have been just so supportive. They want to get this movie to the screen, so we have been doing our part and we’re very much in the trenches right now delivering page after page after page to make that a reality." When asked how God Of War will compare to other recent "swords and sandals" films such as Immortals and Wrath Of The Titans, Dunstan said that the video game adaptation was "being made to be vastly different".
Additionally, Dunstan comments on the trailer for Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated sci-fi epic Pacific Rim. "We were given a teaser the first day we showed up on set. One set, which is as big as a football stadium, had a robot foot. Then Mr. Del Toro showed us 10 seconds of a fight between the entities of the future and the creatures of his imagination and it’s like, “Okay, the summer is now owned.’" The trailer for the film will be released next month, likely attached to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theaters.
