“Chronicle” has been, so far, arguably the best superhero movie of the year (and, yeah, we’re including “The Avengers” in that), and the director, Josh Trank, is tied to a lot of movies, as tends to happen when you make a movie that grosses four or five times its budget.

But apparently his latest will be a live-action “Shadow of the Colossus”.

The good news is that this isn’t Sony heartlessly throwing a property they own into the summer tentpole arena: Trank loves the game and actively sought the job. We’re just wondering how a movie of the game, which has deliberately has the bare minimum of story, is going to work.

But, hey, we’ll take it. Better than Hollywood deciding “Madden” needs a movie.
