It seems like all I’m writing about lately are video game adaptations, so let’s keep the trend going with God of War.
Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who penned Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim and a few of the Saw films, have been hired by Universal to rewrite God of War, the film based on the popular video game from Sony Computer Entertainment.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“Created by David Jaffe and Shannon Studstill and released in March 2005, the game followed the battles of the Spartan warrior Kratos, who squares off against mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra in his quest to find Pandora’s Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.”
David Self (The Wolfman, Road to Perdition) wrote the first draft and is executive producing the film.
