Ratner Confirms God of War

“Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner has finally confirmed to UGO the rumors that emerged in May that he is attached to direct the “God of War” movie.

Set in ancient Greece, the popular video game follows the battles of the warrior Kratos, who tackles mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra. Players navigate Kratos on his quest to find Pandora’s Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.

Universal Pictures scored the movie rights to the property back in 2005. The project joins the Hugh Hefner biopic and “Beverly Hills Cop 4” on Ratner’s schedule.
