Boing Boing’s posted an in-depth look at the recently filed claim that God of War bore striking similarities to a screenplay by writer Jonathan Bissoon-Dath and artist Jennifer Barrette-Herzon.

To cut a long story short, Bissoon-Dath and Barrette-Herzon pitched the movie to Sony in 2002, and are now claiming God of War, which released in 2005, was started shortly after having lifted “plot, story, themes, dialogue, mood, setting, pace, characters, relationships among characters, settings, tone, detail and sequence of events” from Bissoon-Dath’s writings, and much of the in-game map from that made by Barrette-Herzon.
