‘Chronicle’ Director Josh Trank to Adapt ‘Shadow of the Colossus’

Following the success of ‘Chronicle,’ director Josh Trank will next tackle a live action adaptation of the bestselling Sony video game, ‘Shadow of the Colossus.’

Deadline reports that the studio is currently interviewing writers to script the big budget monster feature, which tells the story of a man who summons a demon to revive his dead lover, but in order to get her back he must first slay 16 gargantuan colossi. The giants are massive, exploding into action from all elements — earth, air, and sea. In a twist, the man begins to wonder if he’s merely a pawn in a pact with the devil.

Trank’s first feature, ‘Chronicle,’ was a found footage hit that cost only $13 million to make, but netted the studio over $64 million at the box office. After the success of that film, Trank was attached to direct a ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot at Fox and a ‘Venom’ spin-off at Sony. It’s unclear how this film would effect either of those projects.

Trank has the skill to take a small budget and turn out some major effects, making him a wise choice for ‘Shadow of the Colossus,’ a time when studios are looking to tighten their belts and get the most out of their money. A keen visual mind like Trank could make some pretty interesting choices with this sort of material, and we’re looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.
