‘War’ bonds with Mosaic

'God' game comes to the bigscreen

Universal has secured the movie rights to vidgame “God of War,” created by Sony Computer Entertainment. Mosaic Media Group’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner will produce the feature adaptation.

Set in ancient Greece, vidgame follows the battles of the warrior Kratos, who tackles mythological beasts including Medusa, Cyclops and the Hydra. Players navigate Kratos on his quest to find Pandora’s Box and destroy Ares, the god of war.

Game, created by David Jaffe and Shannon Studstill, was released in March.

Mosaic has not yet attached a scribe or helmer to the project.

“We’ve been enthralled by this project since our first time playing the game in March and realized its narrative had great potential for large-screen production,” Roven said.

Mosaic is a producer on Dimension’s upcoming “Brothers Grimm.” Recent producer credits include “Batman Begins” at Warner Bros. and U’s “Kicking & Screaming,” as well as both “Scooby-Doo” pics.

Overseeing the project for Universal is veep Jeff Kirschenbaum.
