Josh Trank Replaced As Director Of Sony's SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS

Shadow of the Colossus has been in development since 2009, and while Chronicle director Josh Trank was attached to helm the adaptation of the PlayStation 2 game, it appears as if his commitment to a Star Wars spin-off has stopped that. Who's taking over? Read on for details...


Sony Pictures have turned to Andrés Muschietti (Mama) to direct the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus. No reason has been given for Trank's departure from the project, but you have to imagine that it has something to do with him helming one of Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars spin-off movies (and possibly even a sequel to The Fantastic Four). For those of you unfamiliar with the video game which has sold over 2.7 million copies since being released in 2009, it is described as being, "Set in an epic-scale world filled with mythic giants and disembodied spirits, the story will follow a young man attempting to save his lost love by accomplishing a seemingly impossible task… the destruction of the colossi who roam the forbidden land." Seth Lochhead has been tapped to pen the script which Muschietti will oversee the development of. "We knew we had our director once we heard Andy’s take on the material – it was genius," said Sony's Michael De Luca today. "The themes, characters and supernatural elements of the story have incredible international appeal with fans of the game in the millions."
