New Scribes Hired For “God of War”

The video game film announcements just keep on coming.

“Pacific Rim” scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have come onboard to rewrite the script for Universal and Atlas Entertainment’s film version of the best-selling video game series “God of War” says Heat Vision.

The first 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.

By the end of the third game, much of the Greek pantheon lay dead at Kratos’ feet. The game is famous for its graphics and imaginative environments, its often copied gameplay, and its doses of sex and extreme violence.

Charles Roven and Alex Gartner are producing. David Self penned the previous draft.
