"God of War" Video Game Movie Back on Track

Posted: July 11th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"God of War" Video Game Movie Back on TrackSubmit Comment
Back in 2008, it was reported that Brett Ratner (X-Men 3, Red Dragon) was planning to direct a big screen adaptation of the "God of War" video game. Two years later he dropped out, leaving the project on hold.

Now comes word that Universal Pictures is re-working the script and has hired the team of Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Piranha 3DD, Saw 3D, Saw 6, Saw 5, Saw 4). David Self (Road to Perdition) provided the initial draft for the movie.

The game was released in 2005 and follows the battles of the Spartan warrior Kratos, who squares off against mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra in his quest to find Pandora's Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.

God of War would actually fit quite nicely in a movieformat. But not with these guys. Sure, they know their way around blood and guts, but not storywise. A GoW-movie should be epic, not just another Conan-remake.

As much as I love the games I don't really know if this will work out. I'm always sceptical when it comes to video game adaptions. Thank you Mr. Boll...

Piranha 3DD wasn't a great sequel to the first movie but still a good funny horror comedy movie.

The Hoff and Chrsitopher Lloyd were great in Pirahna 3DD.

Still I think Vin Diesel should be cast as Kratos.

Please no Uwe Boll, he has destoryed every video game movie he has ever made.

God of War? More like God of Fail.

This will absolutely suck ass because the *ssholes behind that Saw sh*t do not know how to make anything beyond festivals of gore and violent depravity, so I expect God of War to be little more than flying heads and spurting blood and virtually no story whatsoever.

And I regret David Self decided to attach his name to this future failure.

Ya this just sounds doomed. Snyder shoulda made this franchise.

I wonder who the f*ck will play Kratos? Thats gonna be interesting.
