There was talk back in May of Universal threatening to put Brett Ratner in the directors chair for the game-to-movie adaptation of God of War. Well now they have done more than threaten it, then have actually gone through with it.
Brett Ratner revealed the news to UGO
We caught up with him recently and confirmed either your greatest dream or biggest fear: Brett Ratner is indeed making a movie based on the video game series, God of War. Honestly, I love the Kratos games, however, they aren’t exactly the deepest when it comes to story, so he might just be the right person to handle the film adaptation.
God of War centers on Kratos, a celebrated soldier who is haunted by his past transgressions and his debt to the Gods of Olympus. It could have just been your typical hack and slash game, but the cinematic approach and highly entertaining story line earned it a reputation as one of the best around. Lets hope Ratner can do it justice (although I don’t have high expectations).
