Chronicle Director Josh Trank Signs on for Film Adaptation of Colossus Videogame
In 2011, 28-year-old director Josh Trank made a $124 million dollar success out of Chronicle, a sci-fi superhero film that was produced with just a small $12-million budget. According to a report from Deadline, Trank has signed on to lend his budget-bending talents to a new film,Shadow of the Colossus.
The film will be an adaptation of the 2005 Sony Playstation 2 videogame of the same name. The plot involves a young man named Wander who must slay 16 enormous colossi in order to bring a captured girl named Mono back to life.
The game was released to positive critical reviews for its visual style. The project has been in the works since 2009, and a script has already been written, but Trank is overseeing the writing of a new one. Since the sleeper success story that was Chronicle, Trank has signed on to two other projects: a Sony pictures Spiderman spin-off called Venom and a Warner Brothers Red Star comic book adaptation.
