Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan Bringing God of War to the Big Screen
If there's one video game series that's rife with enough plot to become a major motion picture, it's without question Sony's God of War. The tale of Kratos is a long and bloody one, and Hollywood has just picked two writers that can get the job done!
According to THR, Universal has tapped Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Piranha 3DD, the Saw franchise) to rewrite God of War, the studio adaptation of the video game from Sony Computer Entertainment.
Created by David Jaffe and Shannon Studstill and released in March 2005, the game followed the battles of the Spartan warrior Kratos, who squares off against mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra in his quest to find Pandora's Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.
David Self, who is exec producing, wrote the initial draft.
