Muschietti To Helm “Shadow of the Colossus”

Argentine filmmaker Andres Muschietti (“Mama”) is set to direct the film adaptation of the acclaimed Playstation video game bestseller “Shadow of the Colossus” for Sony Pictures.

The original game follows 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 her back is to kill the 16 colossi that dominate this mystical place. The game received much acclaim for its story and design, and sold over 2.7 million copies worldwide.

Seth Lochhead (“Hanna”) will pen the script while Kevin Misher and Barbara Muschietti will produce. Josh Trank (“Chronicle”) was previously attached to direct.
