Shadow of the Colossus – a film adaptation of Team ICO’s iconic PS2 title – has been in development since 2009. It has been languishing in the writing phase since then, but now the project appears to be picking up speed, as the co-writer of 2011 action flick Hanna has joined the project to pledge his writing skills.

CVG reports that Seth Lochhead has signed up to the project, and is joined by Chronicle director Josh Tranks and producer of Public Enemies Kevin Misher.

The original script – penned in 2009 – came courtesy of Street Fighter writer Justin Marks. We’re thinking the world dodged a bullet with that one quite frankly.

What do you think? Should this be left well alone, or could the new team do it justice?
