In development for some time, Sony Pictures' video game adaptation Shadow of the Colossus appears to have found a director. Deadline is reporting that Josh Trank, who made his feature debut earlier this year with 20th Century Fox's Chronicle, has signed on to helm.
Colossus, which was released exclusively on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, revolves around a man named Wander who must travel across a cursed wasteland and defeat 16 creatures, known as the colossi, in order to restore the life of a girl.
Trank is lining up a number of high-profile projects at various studios. Also at Sony, he's said to be attached to direct the Spider-Man spinoff Venom, while at Warner Bros., he's to helm the comic book adaptation The Red Star. Meanwhile, Trank's name has been connected with 20th Century Fox's reboot of Fantastic Four as well.

However, has a Trank is a self confessed video game fanatic, you can expect that Colossus will really be something quite exciting and extraordinary and probably the best game-to-film adaption we will ever see, if Trank approaches it with same mastery and dedication he showed when making Chronicle.
