"Justin Marks of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Voltron, and Masters of the Universe, has been hired to write the screenplay."

sigh...

facepalm2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

Only one thing I can say about this... NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

::facepalm::

EDIT ADDED: I guess one person (the Disagree) actually enjoyed the SF:Chun-Li movie...

TheBigL053R2611d ago

Yea. At first I was thinking "Hell yes, this movie could turn out to totally awesome!"

Then I saw what the writer and producer have done. =(

hay2611d ago

This is bullsh!t. Game deserves a lot more.

RememberThe3572611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

That has always puzzled me. Why not keep it in the family?

EDIT: sonarus: I'm not too confident myself about how this movie will turn out. Few directors could bring something like Shadow of the Colossus to the big screen. I'm not too worried about the writer or producer, but I am worried about which director they will choose. We will have to wait and see.

sonarus2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

Thats one of the problems with sony that is being fixed. They have so many branches and divisions each doing their own thing and making their own profit that its hard for them to collaborate on a deal of any sort

Anyway this movie will SUCK BALLZ. Not only is this one of the lamest games to turn into a movie but also the people making the money are crappy

Shadow of the collosus was built to be a game and it was fantastic. But tranforming that into a movie won't work. This is like making a guitar hero movie or something. Just won't work

Dude, Colombia Pictures = Sony. What I can't understand is how Sony let the licence for the God of War movie go to Universal. Must have been before the management integration/shuffle or something.

I just think it's fuched up to let one of Sony's biggest franchise - God of War - go to another studio instead of their OWN!

And another thing, movies on games don't work out! Books is a different thing because you are making an image of something written. Games already have an image and their own way of story telling, with the consoles getting stronger the imaging and storytelling becomes stronger and bigger too.

You want to know what Sony is trying to do with PlayStation? They want to make it a full member of the entertainment business. To be honest, They are only ones who are taking games seriously and try to make it mature. They have done that since the PS1.

UltraNova2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

I really hope Uwe Boll is the director! :p

If you disagree press agree!!

@ the guy who pressed disagree: Are you Uwe Boll?? lol lol

RememberThe3572611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

Thanks for catching me on that.

"The Shadow of the Colossus video game is being developed by producer Kevin Misher (Fighting, Public Enemies, Case 39) at Columbia Pictures."

I was think thinking of the whole God of War/Brett Ratner thing as well. I thought it's said "Universal Pictures" in stead of "Columbia Pictures".

Edit: UltraNova(below): I do remember that. Actually Colombia Pictures is heading the SotC Movie. It's the GoW movie that Universal is doing. But I'm with you on that, it doesn't really make much sense. I think the Sony was a extremely splintered company before the reorganization.

To me it seem like a lack of management skill in the higher ups at Sony to let their subsidiaries do business with other companies when they had all the resources they needed right there. It's kind like hiring an accounting firm the handle your balance sheet when your company has an accounting division, kind of a waist of money. How about keeping it in the family? Hopefully, for the shareholders sake, that is the goal of this recent reorganization.

UltraNova2611d ago

Talking about weird stuff when it comes to Sony, do you recall the whole spider man 3 thing? Sony owns the films but the game went on being on every platform conceivable. We know that Activision (correct me if I m wrong) owns the rights for the games. Its weird though because Spider man 3 was solely based on the movie which is owned by Sony! Now we learn that Shod of the col is taken up by Unive...WTF Sony?

I don't think that Hollywood does minimalistic very well. They`ll probably fill those vast rolling plains with racial stereotype characters or busty babes. But, if it turns out to be a good movie, I`ll see it day one.

LastDance2611d ago

then at the end, he will save wanda and they will start making out.

ape0072611d ago

great news for the fans

and to be honest,this game feel epic like movies

Cenobia2611d ago

The best game ever will make the worst movie ever.

There is no way they could replicate the battles without being lame, and there is really no human interaction in the game at all. How could this possibly be a good movie? They'll either destroy it with a horrible back story or it will be an almost entirely silent film. You can only have your main character talk to himself/a dead person/a horse so much.

I don't see this as being good for fans at all. It really just annoys the hell out of me.

Coconutz9192611d ago

I agree that the battles would be a challenge to translate onscreen, but I don't think having little dialouge would be a problem. With the right cinematography, and screenplay I think it's very possible to make a compelling film out of Shadow of the Colossus.

Take the movie Castaway for example: aside from the brief beginning and end, the vast majority of the film was simply Tom Hanks stranded on an island trying to survive all alone. There was very little dialouge, but still engaging none the less.

I think a Shadow of the Colossus movie could begin and end very much the same way as the game. You'd need to cut the number of colossi to 3 or 4, and it would need to be filmed in a very gorgeous environment to show Wander traversing some unique terrain to break up the action. It would be a very difficult movie to make, but still very possible in the right hands.

Now, do I think this particular adaptation will be good? Unfortunately, no. The writer of Street Fighter has a LOT of odds against him. I think Peter Jackson could do well with this though...

cryymoar2611d ago

just record someone playing the game the whole way through, then put it on the big screen. SotC feels like an epic movie as it is. lets leave it at that?

DONT DO ITTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Azurite2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm... <- Guillermo del Toro please?

http://www.edge-online.com/... <- "There are only two games I consider masterpieces: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus."

Lucreto2611d ago

Guillermo del Toro would be good. But he will be directing the Hobbit.

Peter Jackson would also be a good choice.

ps921172611d ago

Exactly what I was thinking, if he does not direct it, than f u sony, funny if it was like pans labarynth completely in spanish, I would kill to to see that.
