Pacific Rim: Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight wants to make an R-rated God of War movie, and his star is Dave Bautista!
The movie is already sound 100% better now that we heard director Steven S. DeKnight wants the sexy hunk Dave Bautista in God of War Rated R! Read on…
Steven S. DeKnight is currently promoting the home video release of Pacific Rim: Uprising. However, has been heard making reference to what he wants to do next an that is God of War!
Let it be known that Steven S. DeKnight cautions that they were early conversations but that doesn’t count out that if its a go, the film could be potentially awesome! In a recent interview, DeKnight discussed his love for God of War and why he wants Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista as Kratos.
I’ve always been a fan of God of War. I think the latest game was just so beautiful and phenomenal. I would love to tackle a God of War movie or I would love to see somebody put that up on the big screen. Somebody asked me, ‘Well, who would you have to have Kratos?’ And immediately for me: Dave Bautista would be the man. I think he can do anything. You can do drama, real emotion, humor, action. What would I like to see from a movie like that? A bit of a tricky question because there hasn’t really been 100% success of translating a video game to a movie. It’s a very, very tricky process.
Though, video game movies haven’t figured out how to really pull off a live action movie version of a game like comic book superhero films like the MCU franchise. We’re NOT adding in DCU just yet since they’re still figuring it out.
The Pacific Rim: Uprising director adds:
I had some early conversations with the good people at Sony PlayStation about it and my biggest thing is, look, you gotta approach it like a book. Approach it like adapting Jaws. For people who’ve read Jaws, the movie is very different but they’re both fantastic. So you have to be able to take the source material and make it work as a movie. Which means a lot of times you’ve got to change things, which is very dicey obviously because you don’t want to alienate video game fans, but you have to make a film that works within the context of a movie by itself. Very difficult. I would love to tackle it.
Only time will tell. Someone just needs to make sure Dave Bautista is cast in the role!
