The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a new director has been chosen for the Shadow Of The Colossus movie, which has been floating around since 2009, with Andrés Muschietti apparently getting the directorial nod by Sony. The Argentine director is well known for the horror film Mama, which released last year and is his first full length directoral project. His other directorial works include two shorts, Nostalgia en la mesa 8 and Mamá, the latter of which was the basis for his full length movie.
Andrés will be joined by his wife Barbara who will be taking a producer’s chair alongside her husband, with Kevin Misher also joining the project. He was a producer on the film Public Enemies which starred Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. The scriptwriter for the Shadow Of The Colossus movie is said to be Seth Lochhead, who also worked on Hanna. As this is quite early in the new production run no cast have been confirmed or rumoured yet.
I’m quite interested to see how Shadow Of The Colossus would translate to the big screen, considering the amount of beasts that were present. Maybe they’ll cut down to fewer colossi so the film doesn’t span on for hours.
