Director Josh Trank on the Shadow of the Colossus Film: “We’re Working on It”

on February 5, 2014 12:39 PM

With the upcoming release of Need for Speed, the announcements of Sly Cooper and Heavenly Sword, and the ongoing development of Uncharted, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid, there is certainly a resurgence of video game films taking place. Shadow of the Colossus has been brewing as a film since as far back as 2009, with Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) recently coming aboard in 2012.

“We’re working on it,” was the only detail Mr. Trank could give in a recent interview. He cited his love for Ico and his newfound success as a Director with his film Chronicle as two of the biggest factors in his ability to land the job.

No release window, casting, nor story details have been released for the Shadow of the Colossus film, in which Josh Trank will direct a screenplay written by Seth Lochhead. Which do you think will come out first? The Shadow of the Colossus film or The Last Guardian?
