Shadow of the Colossus... movie?!

It would be a good thing if they could pull it off. But the story is subtle as fuck with almost no dialog.

The cryptic scene after you kill a beast are amazing. Bone chilling really.

I read somewhere a producer...or something was quite inspired by the first half or so of WALL-E.  If they did it like that, there would be some potential.  If....  If.... Iffeeeeuuugh....

I'm worried that most that it'll be Americanized into giving Wander a comic-relief, and have a healthy dose of witty American banter that no one asked for... and explosions boom-booming everywhere.

Well, it would at the very least be better that Battleship.

It has to be a labor of love catered to the audience.

So that'll never happen.

Also the people that make the fillum need to have played it.

This should not be the standard for anything.

My skeptic alarm is blaring.  I love Shadow of the Colossus, but I have no idea how they could make it a successful, marketable movie without changing what SotC fundamentally *is*.  And even then I'd probably still buy a ticket....
