Normally when we learn about the people responsible for writing movies based on video games, there's a round of muted applause. If we're lucky. More often than no there are groans.
So it's a nice surprise to learn that the long-in-development hell Shadow of the Colossus movie project — which last year got a director - now has a talented writer to go with it.
That writer is Seth Lochhead, the Hollywood Reporter reports, who takes over from Justin Marks' early 2009 script. He co-wrote the excellent Hanna and has a top-secret project in the works at Warner Bros with Michael Bay.
