Josh Trank Directing 'SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS' For Sony

Deadline reports that Chronicle director Josh Trank has signed on to helm an adaptation of Shadow of The Colossus for Sony Pictures. The project is based on the Sony video game which Trank had been a fan of. Josh is also currently attached to the Spider-Man spin-off Venom, The Red Star (based on a graphic novel) and a reboot of Fantastic Four. Fox's Tom Rothman recently confirmed Trank's early involvement with new Fantastic Four film. I assume Fox will be eager to move into production on the heels of Avengers.

"A young man who thinks his lover has died. Desperate to bring her back, he heads into a forbidden land, and summons a demon who can wake the dead. The price for bringing back his girl: slay 16 colossi that dominate this mystical place. These are skyscraper-sized giants that rise from the ground, fly through the air and come from the water. As the young man works through his quest on horseback, he begins to wonder if he is on a noble pursuit to bring back his lover, or perhaps has made a deal with the devil and is being used."
