The God of War Movie project continues, despite persistent rumours that Brett Ratner is about to sever links with the production. Today’s news, reported by The Hollywood Reporter, is that there’s a new writing team on board.
Patrick Melton and Ryan Dunstan are apparently on board. The duo co-wrote four of the Saw movies (IV, V, VI and 3D – not the good ones) as well as the masterpiece of modern cinema writing that was Piranha 3DD. So expect gore, boobs and terrible dialogue then.
The duo are, apparently, doing some currently uncredited work writing on Guillermo del Torro’s upcoming movie, Pacific Rim.
I might be judging too early and I’m certainly no expert but this does not seem like good news to me. In this writing duo’s thirteen movie history, there isn’t any indication of an ability to make God of War into an interesting film. It looks like another movie adaptation embarrassment waiting to happen.
