It has been well known that the PlayStation 2 hit “God of War” was being made into a movie. Now designer David Jaffe has stated that the movie script is done. He also said that he would prefer Djimon Hounsou, who was worked in Amistad and Blood Diamonds, to play Kratos.
David Jaffe said in an interview to Entertainment Weekly, “I keep expecting them to call me and say it’s dead, but my fingers are crossed. We’ll be sending the script out to a huge-name director… Djimon Hounsou as Kratos. Absolutely. You have to get past the fact that Kratos is Greek, but in terms of the way he looks and his acting ability and his physique, I can’t think of a better choice.”
The script of the God of War movie has been written by David Self who has worked on Thirteen Days and Road to Perdition. The sequel to the game, God of War 2 for the PS2 is expected to release this month while a PSP version of the game is also in the works. The movie has a good script writer; lets hope the director would be a good one too and the movie doesn’t end up like the Lara Croft movies.
