Sony Pictures has hired writer Seth Lochhead to pen their upcoming adaption of the hit video game Shadow of the Colossus.

The PS2 exclusive was a fantasy adventure centered on a young man named Wander, who was tasked with defeating sixteen massive colossi in order to save a girl named Mono, and restore peace and order to his kingdom.

Seth Lochhead is best known for his work on Joe Wright's Hanna, which was an original concept by the writer, in collaboration with David Farr.

Chronicle's Josh Trank is directing Shadow of the Colossus, with Kevin Misher producing.

No production schedule has been released for the project.
