It’s been long-rumored that Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand) would be directing the adaptation of the popular video game, God of War.
UGO recently spoke to the man directly and he confirmed his involvement — it’s official, he’s definitely directing God of War.
The first God of War game (likely to be the basis for the movie) is a fantastical and ultra-violent Greek mythology-inspired tale following Kratos, a bad-ass Spartan soldier who looks to God of War, Ares, to help him in battle. While a slave to Ares, Kratos accidentally slaughters his own wife and child, causing him to seek revenge upon Ares himself.
As you can tell, the guy who directed some buddy cop movies and a threequel that was an embarrassment to the first two X-Men movies is just perfect for the job.
I’m still holding on to some hope something will change this. Ratner has always been the one saying that he was doing it, so him saying it now still has me begging and crying for it to just be talk. I’m sure the press release will take care of all of that and then I’ll just be crying.
Maybe if I sell my soul…
