Shadow of the Colossus movie acquires a new writer

Shadow of the Colossus

Team Ico might be taking its time releasing The Last Guardian, but a movie adaptation of one of its previous games seems to be coming together.

Seth Lochhead, the co-writer of the action film Hanna from 2011, is now penning the previously announced Shadow of the Colossus movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Meanwhile, Josh Trank, who made the movie Chronicle, is still on board to lead to the project. He signed on as director in May 2012.

The project has been in the works since 2009.

Shadow of the Colossus follows a young man named Wander, who rides his horse Argo across a countryside in search of 16 colossi he must defeat in order to resurrect the girl Mono. The largely silent game isn't exactly what you picture when you think of good movie material, so it'll be interesting to see how Lochhead and Trank approach the film.
