Just in time for the highly anticipated video game God of War 2 to hit shelves today, game creator David Gaffe spoke briefly about the film adaptation in an Entertainment Weekly interview. Like a lot of big adaptation projects as of recent, it's moving along slowly but surely, with the latest being a nearly completed script.
In the interview, Gaffe's answer was short and sweet, right to the point.
There's a really good script written by David Self, who wrote Thirteen Days for Kevin Costner. I keep expecting them to call me and say it's dead, but my fingers are crossed. We'll be sending the script out to a huge-name director.
He also was asked about what actor would be his idol choice to play Kratos, the main character in the game, and without hesitation Gaffe answered Djimon Hounsou. You can read the full interview with Gaffe on EW.com, with the last few questions being about the movie. Although I'm not a fan of the game myself, I do understand that just like Prince of Persia, it could be converted into a pretty incredible adaptation. Let's hope it actually gets made and doesn't die in pre-production hell!
