GOD OF WAR Movie Tricky Says Video Game Writer

A writer from the God of War video game series discusses the difficulties of bringing Kratos to a movie screen. "The player has a personal experience with [Kratos], and then he’s going to be embodied by a different actor, he’s going to have a different voice, he’s going to say a lot more words."

At Pax Prime, GameSpot attended a panel where God of War video game series writer Marianne Krawczyk talked about a problem inherent to all video game adaptations while talking about the God of War movie. Krawcayk compared the movie to when she was a kid and loved reading the Garfield comic but when she saw the cartoon and heard his voice, it completely threw her. ”I think, if [Kratos] ever makes it to the big-screen, there will be that similar dissonance. The player has a personal experience with him, and then he’s going to be embodied by a different actor, he’s going to have a different voice, he’s going to say a lot more words,” said Krawcayk who also wrote the recent Star Trek tie-in game. She did add, “ I think it will be hard to get that across. But I hope they will someday. We don’t know.”

The last update on the God of War movie came in June 2012 where Saw screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan were revealed to be tackling the script which was described as a bloodier and bolder Clash of the Titans for Universal Pictures. The Dark Knight trilogy producer Charles Roven is a producer on the film so perhaps he’ll bring the newly Universal-partnered Thomas Tull and his Legendary Pictures aboard the project to get the film in gear.
