God of War movie gets Saw writers


By: Eddie Makuch

GodofWar_17557_screenThe upcoming God of War movie from Universal Studios is still alive, and its new script is being written by Saw series scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. Melton and Dunstan wrote Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, and Saw 3D.

Charles Roven and Alex Garnter, producers of the forthcoming film based on Naughty Dog’s Uncharted action franchise, are producing the God of War movie via Atlas Entertainment.

No mention was made of a director or actors for the God of War film, and a release date has not been nailed down. In 2008, Rush Hour director Brett Ratner wasattached to helm the project, but it is unclear if he is still involved.

News regarding game-to-movie adaptations has been buzzing of late. Just this week, Ubisoft announced that X-Men: First Class and Inglourious Basterds star Michael Fassbender will play the lead role in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film. Additionally, yesterday, CBS Films picked up the rights to make a movie based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

God of War: Ascension is due out in March 2013. It is a prequel to the original trilogy, and the first entry in the series to sport a multiplayer component
