Sony Pictures signed â€œChronicleâ€ director Josh Trank to adapt the best-selling Sony video game â€œShadow of the Colossusâ€ on to the big screen.
The studio is currently seeking out writers to work with Trank on the project. It will be produced by Kevin Misher.
The game storyline is about Wander, a young man who entered into a forbidden land. He must defeat sixteen massive beings, or known as colossi, so that he could restore the life of a girl named Mono.
The video game industry praised â€œShadow of the Colossusâ€ for the art due to its minimalist landscape designs and emotional journey. Â It was released in Japan as â€œWander to Kyozo.â€
Trank directed the surprise hit â€œChronicleâ€ earlier this year, which earned over $64 million domestically on a $12 million budgeted film.
According to Deadline, he is also currently developing â€œFantastic Fourâ€ reboot for Twentieth Century Fox and â€œSpider-Manâ€ spin-off film â€œVenomâ€ for Sony Pictures. He may also adapt comic book â€œRed Starâ€ for Warner Brothers Pictures.
