‘Hanna’ Writer Tapped for Film Adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus
It seems that a movie version of Team ICO’s Shadow of The Colossus may well be in the works sometime soon, with the writer of the film Hanna tapped to pen the screenplay.
That’s according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, which flags writer Seth Lochhead as adapting the story of the nameless warrior (called Wander by players) and his horse Argo, who journey to a distant temple in hopes of saving the life of a girl. Once he arrives, he’s tasked by a spirit in the temple to destroy 16 colossi that populate the lands around the temple.
Hanna, as you might recall, was about a 16-year-old assassin who has to fight other assassins.
The Hollywood Reporter is also saying that Chronicle director Josh Trank will direct the movie and oversee work on the script. We’ll keep an eye out for more information as it becomes available.
