Sony has hired Hanna screenwriter Seth Locchead to work on a script written by Juston Marks for a film adaptation of Shadow of the Colossus, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Marks was the original writer brought in back in 2009, and Lochhead steps in now to work with director Josh Trank (Chronicle) on polishing the story off.
Team Ico PlayStation 2-era classic should need no introduction with the G4 crowd. The game sends the young Wander and his trusty steed Argo off an adventure across a barren land populated by 16 towering creatures, the titular Colossi. Wander's goal is to defeat the inhabitants of the land so that he can free his lady love from a magically induced sleep.
Sony bringing in a second writer to polish of this long in development script is an extremely good sign. Be hopeful, Team Ico fans. Be very hopeful.
