At Pax Prime (Penny Arcade Expo 2013) in Seattle, WA, GameSpot caught up with esteemed God of War series writer Marianne Krawczyk (yes, one of the bloodiest and most visceral games of the 90′s was written partly, by a woman) and asked her about the God of War movie. Krawczyk started out recalling a childhood memory, how she loved reading the Garfield comic strip as a kid but when she watched the cartoon, the voice of Garfield was so different from what she had imagined in her head, she never watched another episode. Krawczyk said something similar could happen with a God of War movie. ”I think, if [Kratos] ever makes it to the big-screen, there will be that similar dissonance. The player has a personal experience with him, and then he’s going to be embodied by a different actor, he’s going to have a different voice, he’s going to say a lot more words,” said the video game writer of the recent Star Trek tie-in game. She did add, “ I think it will be hard to get that across. But I hope they will someday. We don’t know.”
The last noteworthy update on the God of War movie had Saw screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan working on the script which was described as a bloodier and bolder Clash of the Titans for Universal Pictures. That update came in July of last year and nothing new on the project has emerged since. The Dark Knight trilogy producer Charles Roven is a producer on the film so perhaps he’ll bring the newly partnered Thomas Tull and Legendary Pictures aboard the project to get the film in gear.
