Brett Ratner Shelves ‘God of War’, Moves On To More Fitting ‘Trump Heist’
  |  @   |  

Thank the Gods! It’s being reported that horribly unfitting director Brett Ratner has decided to shelve his adaptation of the fantastic video game God of War.

This project was one of the seemingly infinite amount of projects that Ratner was lining up. More importantly, it was the worst match to what Brett Ratner has evolved into, making it a horrible thing for fans to see happening.

It turns out that Ratner will instead make another movie his next project. Not shocking at all, it’s not the Hugh Hefner biopic, it’s not Conan, and it’s not Beverly Hills Cop 4 — though it does include Eddie Murphy. The movie is called Trump Heist, and it pairs Murphy with Chris Tucker as a couple janitors who plan a heist on the Trump Towers. This, sounds much more up Ratner’s alley.

The big question now is: how much control over God of War does Ratner have? Does his shelving it make it dead as dead can be, or is there hope that it will be taken and produced elsewhere and with a more talented, preferably visionary director?

I would love to see a well-done God of War movie, so I do hope it happens eventually. But for now, on this chilly February day, I and many others will breathe a happy sigh of relief as we find out that at the very least, God of War is out of harm’s way.
