Muschietti is a fan of Shadow of the Colossus and plans to stay true to the human story of the game saying he has a strong vision for the film and its characters, we can say he is good fit to direct. The game follows a young man attempting to save his lost love by accomplishing a seemingly impossible task… the destruction of the colossi who roam the forbidden land. The film will be set in an “epic-scale world gilled with mythic giants and disembodies spirits.”

Michael De Luca, President of Production, says the following:

“We knew we had our director once we heard Andy’s take on the material – it was genius.

(…) The themes, characters and supernatural elements of the story have incredible international appeal with fans of the game in the millions.”
