Gaming News: "Colossus Movie?"
Posted: Wednesday April 8th, 2009 by

Arty, Colossus slaying, PS2 hit Shadow of the Colossus seems to be slated for a movie release. Not much information has been given about the film. But, Kevin Misher (The Interpreter, The Rundown) is set to produce and Justin Marks (Street Fight: The Legend of Chun-Li) is working on the script.

My initial response to this news was "cool". But then I started going over my memories of the game. It was absolutely gorgeous; but, it was sparse, there was no dialogue, it was repetitive, short, and the camera SUCKED! I just can't wrap my brain around how it will work as a film... unless it is drastically altered. And quite frankly, I don't think Justin Marks has the chops to pull that off successfully. I mean, from what I read characters who were only in the game briefly are going to play a larger part in the film. [more info]

I loved the look of Shadow of the Colossus and when I ignored the camera I even enjoyed playing it. But, the solitude was part of the charm. I don't think I'm ready for what these people are going to do to it.
