July 27, 2005 - Mosaic Group, the same production company involved with Batman Begins and the upcoming Brothers Grimm, is planning to bring the PlayStation 2 game God of War to life on the big screen, reports Variety.

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. The game was released for Sony's console in March.

"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," said producer Charles Roven.

Although the game is a product of Sony's entertainment division, Universal will be distributing the God of War film.
