Universal Pictures has hired Pacific Rim and Saw screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite God of War. The first draft of the script was written by the films' executive producer David Self.
This game could easily make for an incredibly epic movie, I don't see how they could screw it up. But we've seen video game adaptation get screwed up time and time again. At one point a few years ago they had Brett Ratner said he was going to direct this movie, thankfully that didn't happen!
God of War was created by David Jaffe and Shannon Studstill and the story follows the battles of the Spartan warrior Kratos, who fights a ton of mythological beasts and creatures including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra in his quest to find Pandora's Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.
One day they will finally push this movie into production, hopefully with a talented team. I'm not a big fan of the Saw movies that Melton and Dunstan wrote, and I have yet to see Pacific Rim, but maybe they have a good vision of where they story could go.
Who would you like to see end up directing and starring in this movie?
