Look what’s back in the news again, Shadow of the Colossus.  Sony’s been working on this video game adaptation since 2009 and, at one point, the studio even recruited Josh Trank to make it his Chronicle follow-up.  Clearly that never panned out, but now the studio’s found someone else to helm the project, Mama director Andres Muschietti.

Muschietti hasn’t delivered a new film since Mama’s 2013 release, so Shadow of the Colossus would only be his second feature, but had Sony moved forward with Trank, he would have been in the same position as well, so perhaps harvesting new talent through a big budget film is a prime goal here.  Hit the jump for more on the Shadow of the Colossus movie.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will probably never come together.  But don’t worry, Hollywood will never stop making different versions of Pride and Prejudice.  According to Variety the next one, Lost in Austen, will be directed by Nora Ephron.  The modern take is based on the BBC miniseries of the same name written by Guy Andrews: “The story follows a modern New York girl transported into the middle of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.”

Andrea Giannetti and Hannah Minghella will oversee the project for Sony, who are excited to get back in business with Ephron after their last collaboration Julia & Julia grossed $130 million worldwide.  Ephron is also attached to a Peggy Lee biopic with Reese Witherspoon at the lead.  Watch the trailer for the original Lost in Austen after the jump.
