Shadow of the Colossus movie gets Chronicle director

It's been a long time since we've heard from Sony about their plans to adapt Shadow of the Colossus into a film. However, the project is apparently still alive. According to a new report, Josh Trank, director of the recent Chronicle has been signed to lead the project.

According to Deadline (via Joystiq), Trank has been a fan of the classic PS2 game and "sought out the job." The studio is currently interviewing writers for the treatment, suggesting the movie's original script by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) is no longer in consideration.

The long-stalled project may not make it into theaters any time soon, however. In addition this film, Trank is apparently also attached to three other movies: Fantastic Four, Venom, and Red Star. Of course, Team Ico fans are no strangers to waiting--so it's unlikely they'll mind.
