Sony Pictures Adapting Shadow of the Colossus


Sony Pictures will adapt the popular PlayStation 2 title “Shadow of the Colossus” into a big screen action film, with Justin Marks writing the screenplay and Kevin Misher in negotiations to produce, says Variety.

“Colossus,” which was released exclusively on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, revolves around a man named Wander who must travel across a cursed wasteland and defeat 16 creatures, known as the colossi, in order to restore the life of a girl.

The project, which proved a big seller for PlayStation and was produced internally by Sony Computer Entertainment, will build upon the video game’s fantasy setting of a solitary world with few characters other than the 16 enemies.
