Shadow of the Colossus movie nabs a director…

September 5th, 2014 by Marc Comments

We talked about it last night on the live show, but it looks like Mama director Andrés Muschietti is heading to the land of the giants in his next movie.

Deadline are reporting that he will direct the movie based on the Playstation game Shadow of the Colossus (nine years ago!) and it will be penned by the writer of Hanna, Seth Lochhead.

“The protagonist of the original action-adventure game 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.”

No more news available now but, as always, when we hear, you’ll hear…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
