Josh Trank, the director behind this year’s surprise found footage movie Chronicle, has signed on to develop The Shadow of the Colossus as a directing vehicle.
Colossus is Sony’s adaptation of the popular PlayStation 2 video game. Kevin Misher is producing.
The project was initially set up in 2009 and had a script written by Justin Marks. However, Trank will oversee the writing of a new script, with the moviemakers currently out to scribes for the gig.
The game’s story involves a young man named Wander, who, riding his trusty steed Argo, travels a world defeating 16 colossal beings in order to resurrect a girl named Mono.
Trank has become quite popular since the success of Chronicle, a found footage movie about three teens who discover superpowers and end up battling above the skies of Seattle. The movie was made for around $12 million and grossed $124 million worldwide.
Since Chronicle, Trank, repped by WME and Management 360, has been associated with Spider-Man spin-off Venom at Sony and a Fantastic Four reboot at Fox.
