The film adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus
is still chuggin' right along, edging ever closer to becoming either the best or
worst thing ever, as is the expected fate of all video game movie projects.
The production has added Seth Lochhead
to its staff, according to The Hollywood Reporter
, who will be responsible for Colossus
' story and/or screenplay. Lochhead's previous writing accomplishments include Hanna
, the 2011 action thriller that starred Saoirse Ronan
and The Incredible Hulk
Script production will be overseen by director Josh Trank with Lochhead starting on a fresh adaptation
rather than elaborating on the initial draft penned by Justin Marks, the same scribe behind 2009's disastrous Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li
. We're not complaining.
