Shadow of the Colossus movie still happening

According to an LA Times, report, the movie tie-in of Shadow of the Colossus is still happening.

The tidbit emerged from an interview with the film’s writer, Justin Marks, the man behind the screenplay for the amazing Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

Marks has already pleaded with fans of the game to give him a second chance.

“I think many of the games haven’t worked as movies because it’s hard to find the right game. There are very few that lend themselves to movies,” he said.

“If we started thinking that anything that worked in one medium shouldn’t be adapted for another we wouldn’t have a lot of the great movies we’ve had, because so many of them came from novels.”

The Team ICO-created epic was announced for a big-screen flick last year by Sony studio Columbia, with Kevin Misher of Public Enemies to handle producer duties.
