There are quite a few popular games being adapted onto the big screen at the moment. There’s Prince of Persia which will begin filming soon, and BioShock which will be directed by Pirates of the Caribean director Gore Verbinski. Now God of War could be getting the film treatment, as a journalist recently revealed that Brett Ratner might be involved. Film Junk found the scoop at the very bottom of this article.
I have never been a hardcore gamer, so I’ve never had the chance to play God of War. For those of you who also haven’t, here’s a quick outline of what is it about.
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.
Brett Ratner is best known for directing the Rush Hour movies, and failing to improve the X-Men franchise with X-Men 3. He isn’t exactly the best man for the job, but then again he isn’t Uwe Boll.
Any God of War fans have an opinion on this?
