Hanna Writer Stands in the Shadow of the Colossus
Some good news for those of you out there looking forward to Josh Trank's (Chronicle) adaptation of Sony's hit video game series Shadow of the Colossus! THR reports that Hanna writer Seth Lochhead has been brought onboard to rewrite a previous draft by Justin Marks.
Trank takes on the Fumito Ueda-created game that has a strong narrative arc along with the obligatory creature quotient that is guaranteed to get the visual effects crowd excited.
The protagonist is a young man who thinks his lover has died. Desperate to bring her back, he heads into a forbidden land and summons a demon who can wake the dead. The price for bringing back his girl: slay 16 colossi that dominate this mystical place. These are skyscraper-sized giants that rise from the ground, fly through the air, and come from the water. As the young man works through his quest on horseback, he begins to wonder if he is on a noble pursuit to bring back his lover or perhaps has made a deal with the devil and is being used.
Trank has been a fan of the game since it launched in 2005 and sought out the job.
