God of War movie a step in ‘bold’ new direction – Report

By: Laura Parker


The upcoming God of War movie from Universal Studios will aim to differentiate itself from other films with similar themes.

According to the film’s writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (who previously wroteSaw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, and Saw 3D), the big screen adaptation of Sony‘s popular gaming franchise will improve on films likeClash of the Titans and Immortals by taking a step in a bolder direction.

“Those movies can inform the God of Warto step in a more bold direction,” Dunstan told ShockTillYouDrop.com.

“Not to join those ranks, but to stand head and shoulders apart like other reinventions have done within that genre. The satisfying element is to look at those movies as a commentary on the genre, and now say something different.”

Melton also revealed that Sony encouraged the duo to make the movie different from what’s already out there in the same genre.

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 film, and a release date has not been nailed down.

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.
