Shadow of the Colossus movie gets new director

Sony’s big screen adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus has snapped up a new director in the shape of Andres Muschietti.

The Spanish-born director is perhaps best known for helming the horror flick, Mama, and will be joined on the project alongside his sister and producing partner, Barbara Muschietti. 

Seth Lochhead will be providing the screenplay for the action-adventure flick, and will be supervised by Muschietti. 

Shadow of the Colossus was released on PlayStation 2 back in 2006, and went on to sell 2.7 million copies worldwide. The game proved a critical success, and won numerous awards, including Best Game at the Game Developer’s Choice Awards. 

A movie has been in the pipeline since 2009 and has had various names attached to the project, including Justin Marks and Josh Trank.
