'Chronicle' Director Still On Board For 'Shadow Of The Colossus' Movie

Did you see Chronicle? Ofcourse you did!

Did you like Chronicle? Ofcourse you did!

Were you excited when you first heard that Chronicle's director was going to direct a Shadow Of The Colossus movie? You were?! Great! Because he's still on board.

After the massive success of Chronicle both critically and financially (the film cost very little by Hollywood standards), director Josh Trank had his pick of projects, and promptly accepted the offer to reboot Fantastic Four and to direct a Venom movie for Sony. When he contacted Sony to ask who was in charge of their upcoming Shadow of the Colossus movie, they offered him the job and he accepted! Fans of the game were, understandably, concerned that he was taking on a lot of projects but recently the Venom movie project fell through, which put a lot of minds at ease. Trank hasn't spoken much about the project since then, but speaking to Video Game Films this week he reminded everyone it's still on his list of priorities, and pretty high up that list by the sounds of it!

I can't talk about it, but I'll say just one thing: I got Ico as soon as it came out, and I just loved that game so much.

I knew immediately when I read that [Team Ico was] making a new [video game] that I wanted to go out and get it as soon as it came out, too, and it just blew me the f**k away.

A couple of years later, I remember seeing in Variety that it had been optioned. I must have been 22 or something, and I just knew, 'Oh my God, if somebody's doing that, I have to somehow get in there and make sure it's done the right way'.

It was one of the first calls I made after Chronicle came out - when I realised I could make calls about things. I was like, 'Hey, what's going on with that?' We're [currently] working on it.

Don't worry guys, this guy loves the game and wants to make the SHIT out of this film!

Oh and go watch Chronicle if you haven't already. Seriously. It's awesome.

Hey, I dunno if you know this already... But you should go and watch Chronicle
