God of War: The Movie!
IGN's picks for who should make and star in the game-to-film!

March 28, 2007 - With the fantasy-laced historical epic 300 (http://movies.ign.com/300/) conquering the box office and God of War II (http://ps2.ign.com/objects/811/811719.html) now out in stores, IGN Movies has set its sights on the live-action, big-screen version of the Sony Playstation videogame sensation God of War (http://ps2.ign.com/objects/661/661321.html). We'll be suggesting who we think should make and star in the movie, which will be produced by Charles Roven (Batman Begins) and his Mosaic Group shingle for Universal Pictures.

God of War is a bloody story of vengeance, set in an ancient Greece full of mythical beings and deities. The hero of the story is a Spartan warrior named Kratos, who must carry out missions for the gods on Olympus to prevent Ares from destroying the city of Athens. "We've been enthralled by this project since our first time playing the game and realized its narrative had great potential for large-screen production," producer Roven said at the time the deal was struck.

Mosaic and Universal should take the simplest course in bringing God of War to the screen, which is to follow the plot of the games. Don't try to squeeze both games into a single film; make God of War an epic film franchise in the vein of Lord of the Rings, with the first film adhering to the basic narrative of the first game.

noooooooooooooooooooo, nooooo noooooooo

damn that almost be as bad as vince diesel.... guys good at wat hes does... but he cant carry the physique or character of kratos...... that be putting a little dog in a big dogs role.

i think they gotta do like they did for 300, and just find a guy that fits the role perfect regardless of how popular he is.

I agree, the guy they choose has to be jacked up.

yea, like the boy from oz playing Wolverine? that was a much more scrutinized role than kratos would ever be. Statham is as fit as a leading man as you get in Hollywood these days...and if he underwent the same regiment that scottish guy(from 300) did, he'd be just as big. i know everyone wants some unknown bodybuilder who can act, but its not gonna happen. and how could you compare Statham to Vin Diesel, cmon? just trying to be realistic here.

yea nothing against you and the guy ...just dont think he fits the role where you forget its him and totally get into the character.. which is somwthing you need for the movie to be good.

and for the wolverine thing, you could be lean and cut and still manage that role. but i think that kratos has to pack a little more muscul thn that just lean holywood actor body typ.

and personally i dont think that 300 guy was very big, he was definetly bigger than most actors.... his cuttness and make him look a lot bigger.... but that Stat guy cant pack even that much muscule with his body type without taking "Stallone supplements" -

but dont pull his poster off yoour wall cause me....i kid.

I dont know about Wolverine man, he was always a jacked up comic character and very beloved by the comic community. I think Kratos visually is no more hulking than him. And Hollywood execs will not concern themselves with finding physical attributes in an actor to appease the masses. I think Statham A. is a good enough actor to have us believe him in character and B. he's a hell of a lot better than Vin Diesel. Although, Statham would indeed be better suited to play Hitman than Kratos...I just don't think there's alot out there. Someone suggested the Rock, and thats not a bad suggestion, though he has that friendly face. I'm more concerned that they make an interesting script and decent translation from the game to be honest. This could be one very entertaining movie.

Woah woah woah, Statham the same as DIESEL?!?! Dude, you should be ashamed :shakeno:. Jason Statham is EXCELLENT. And have you ever seen the guy with no shirt on? He is pretty ripped man, he was on the cover of Men's Fitness one time, and I also saw him on the cover of a muscle mag once in the store. He doesn't have giant muscles, but the guy is absolutely chiseled. I'm sure working with a trainer for X amount of months leading up to filming could add the size along with the cuts.

That being said, I've never played either GoW game so I don't know how well Statham would fit the role character-wise, but he could definately pull it off from a physique standpoint.

Vin Diesel is just a complete joke, PERIOD.

Vin is starring in a movie coming up based on the Carthaginian Hannibal and he will be playing Hannibal so we will get a chance to see how he does in a medieval type of setting.

Statham doesn't have the voice to pull it off.

yea thats kinda wat im saying.. voice, look, physique ... just the whole package doesnt scream anything close to kratos.

i know guys pretty ripped... and i think hes be perfect for hitman.... hed actaully make the character pretty cool and very believable.... but kratos doesnt suit him imo.

and i was messing around with the vin dieasel things guys so chill... no ones as bad as him...... wel maybe except for tito.

I'm with ya. I actually like him. I think this would be somewhat similar to his Riddick roles which I really liked.

Same he did a very good badass in riddick and I think he could pull off kratos I mean alot of people don't like him and thats fine I just think he could do a good job.

Other Note the script writer wants
Djimon Hounsou

Henry Simmons, was in NYPD Blue for quite a few seasons.
He'd be dead on as far as the voice and look of Kratos.
