Universal has tapped genre vets Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite God of War, the studio adaptation of the video game from Sony Computer Entertainment, says THR.
Created by David Jaffe and Shannon Studstill and released in March 2005, the game followed the battles of the Spartan warrior Kratos, who squares off against mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra in his quest to find Pandora’s Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.
David Self, who is exec producing, wrote the initial draft.
Melton and Dunston made their names writing four installments of the Saw horror franchise. To branch out, they wrote a spec called Monstropolis which was well-regarded and caught the attention of the makers of Pacific Rim. It’s also news that the duo worked in the final draft of Guillermo del Toro’s now-filming Pacific Rim. They got their start writing Dimension’s “Project Greenlight” film Feast.
