Seth Lockhead, co-writer of 'Hanna' on-board to adapt the 2004 cult obsessive.

'Shadow of the Colossus,' the famed second title and late era PS2 gem from Team ICO is tracking towards film production according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Josh Trank, known for the recent found-footage high water mark, 'Chronicle,' is already attached to direct and oversee the script writing, which should begin with the 2009 draft penned by Justin Marks.

Part of the game's edible achievement is due to a minimalism in the game world. Playing as the protagonist to defeat the ultimately woeful Colossi and rescue the girl is something of a recurring theme in stories and games, and recreating the experience of the game seems an unlikely goal.

It also remains to be seen whether the game's follow-up, 'The Last Guardian' will ever make release.
