What's in Store for the God of War Movie?

IGN - Earlier today, I had the opportunity to speak with God of War writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton about their highly anticipated game-to-feature adaptation. Coming from a background in horror films such as Saw IV, the Feast trilogy and Piranha 3DD, Patrick and Melton only just recently took their first steps into the action genre after polishing the script for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim. Since then, they've been hired to rewrite the long-gestating God of War movie, which was originally penned by David Self (Road to Perdition, Thirteen Days).

all i could say is that i hope they dont mess this one up, god of war was one of the best games i played and i dont want it to be the next failed video game to movie adaptation.

Agreed, and the " failed video game to movie adaptations" list is very long. I can actually see the God of War series translating beautifully into film. But there's a part of me that feels it's gonna be driven to the ground.

"...Coming from a background in horror films such as Saw IV, the Feast trilogy and Piranha 3DD..."

This is doomed to be shit

Fuck why the Saw/Piranha faggots?

Nolan or GTFO

this comment needs more agrees. those movies were all horrible. why would anyone in their right mind hand them over the god of war franchise... must have had connections.

GoW isn't really Nolan's type of movies..

Anyways, the Feast trilogies were really pretty damn good and entertaining. But Saw and Piranha .. That's horrible.

But they say that they polished a script for Del Toro so that's an amazing news. Seeing that Del Toro trusts them, that means he sees something in them. Let's just hope for the best.

But, i read somewhere that the story will focus on Kratos when he was a man with a wife and kids. It sounded boring as hell.

Nolan can make any movie his type.

Besides, it's dark and serious, he should be fine.

The perfect movie would be a CGI one. Same voice, exact same look, almost real-looking characters...

pwneddemocrat4241d ago

Dark and serious? God of War is pretty damn dark but serious it is not.

Besides, when did Nolan use brutal deaths in his movies? Kratos can't be PG-13.

Nolan is one of my favorite directors but this game is not suitable for his style.
