Sony has been mulling a movie based on Team ICO’s Shadow of the Colossus for five years now, and the project might be about to get some traction. A director has been named for the film.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Andres Muschietti (Mama) will be handling directorial responsibilities, replacing Chronicle director Josh Trank. Seth Lochhead (co-writer of Hanna) will be preparing the script.

Shadow of the Colossus was released on PlayStation 2 in 2005 to critical acclaim and awards for design, visuals, and game of the year. A PlayStation 3 HD remake was released bundled with ICO in 2011.
