Oh No! Brett Ratner Officially Directing God of War?!
Oh no - I think everyone's worst fears have been realized! Brett Ratner is officially attached to direct the God of War movie currently in development. This has been rumored for a while, so it is definitely not the first time we've heard Ratner's named mentioned alongside of God of War. But with this confirmation, I think it may be safe to say that this movie probably won't be that good. And it's a shame because it has the potential to be great. This news comes from UGO, who recently caught up with Ratner. During his answer to a question about what's next, God of War was one that he mentioned was in the works.
I know that I should be waiting to find out more about the project before instantly discrediting Brett Ratner, but most people don't like him anyway. I really think God of War is riding the fine line between either potentially being amazing or being terrible, and with Ratner's involvement, I fear it's leaning towards the terrible side. But focusing on other things, the guys at UGO bring up some very good points about its rating. I think this definitely needs to be rated R, but I doubt it will be. I've got a feeling the studios will want this to be a big summer tentpole, meaning it'll have to be PG-13 in the end.
Beyond all this other discussion about the God of War movie, I'm still anxious to find out who else they'll get. So we know Ratner is involved, but the next big question is who will be starring in it as Kratos?
