Josh Trank To Direct SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS; Still Attached To FANTASTIC FOUR/VENOM
Chronicle director Josh Trank has signed on to helm a big screen adaptation of Sony's epic Shadow Of The Colossus video game. However, the same report mention that he's still working on Fantastic Four and Venom. Read on for details.
Deadline reports that Josh Trank will develop and direct a big screen adaptation of Shadow Of The Colossus for Sony Pictures. The film will be produced by Kevin Misher (Public Enemies, Mirror Mirror) and the studio are said to be currently searching for a screenwriter to work with the Chronicle helmer. Trank has reportedly been a fan of the video game since its release in 2005 and actively sought out the job. Here is a description of the plot from the site.
The protagonist is a young man who thinks his lover has died. Desperate to bring her back, he heads into a forbidden land, and summons a demon who can wake the dead. The price for bringing back his girl: slay 16 colossi that dominate this mystical place. These are skyscraper-sized giants that rise from the ground, fly through the air and come from the water. As the young man works through his quest on horseback, he begins to wonder if he is on a noble pursuit to bring back his lover, or perhaps has made a deal with the devil and is being used.
They also confirm that Trank is still working on Fantastic Four for 20th Century Fox and Venom for Sony Pictures. He's also attached to the big screen adaptation of comic book Red Star for Warner Bros. When all of these projects will eventually end up being made is unknown at this point, but which would you like to see the director tackle first? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
